Every home cook has a collection of go-to recipes that require no recipe at all. If you cook for a family, you know I'm talking about those meals returned to again and again because they're simple and they satisfy.
One of my go-to recipes for the past 20 or so years has been kielbasa and potatoes. And one of my favorite kielbasas to use is Hillshire Farm™ Smoked Sausage, the Turkey Polska Kielbasa flavor. The kielbasa is flavorful and a go-to source of protein (9 grams per serving) for my go-to evening meal.
The Hillshire Brands lineup has protein options for more than just evening meals, though. The line also features Jimmy Dean refrigerated sausage and frozen breakfasts for the first meal of the day, and State Fair Corn Dogs and Ball Park Hot Dogs for lunches (or dinners, of course). Lil Smokies, the Hillshire Farm™ Cocktails make a super game-time go-to, as well.
All the great Hillshire Brands protein options can be found at Safeway — at a discount, too, when registering for Safeway's Just For U and accessing the coupon center.

I recently nabbed a J4U coupon for my Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage — Turkey Polska Kielbasa (click image to access J4U and nab one yourself)...
...gathered all the makings for my kielbasa and potatoes recipe...
... and set to work.
1 13-ounce package Hillshire Farm™ Turkey Polska Kielbasa (or any Hillshire Farm™ Smoked Sausage), cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 to 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
1 green pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sprinklings of black pepper and kosher salt, to taste
In electric skillet, heat olive oil at 375 degrees. Add potatoes and onions; cover and cook about 10 minutes, stirring often. Sprinkle with all spices and stir well so pieces are evenly coated. Add green pepper slices and kielbasa and combine well. Cover and cook another 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often, until potatoes are sufficiently tender.
Makes 6 servings. Serve with salad and dinner rolls for a yummy, homestyle meal with plenty of protein.
