Potato Kielbasa Skillet

Last week I told you that we’re each picking a country and then a food from that country for our family dinners.  This past week, we ate in Germany and we had this dish, Potato Kielbasa Skillet.  It was so good.  We’ll definitely have it again and I’ve already printed the recipe and added it to the cookbook.

This particular recipe came from Taste of Home, and you can find the recipe here if you prefer to check out their site.
