Kielbasa with Cajun flavored peppers and onions

Got the idea for this recipe from here but since we don’t have a grill thought I would skip the skewers part and just saute the sausage, peppers and onions in a cast iron skillet instead…

I made this recipe for 6, asNormy and I have a new roommate! My cousin Jenn is staying with us for a couple of months for school so I have me another person to cook for! I do 6 servings so we all have some for dinner and then for lunch the next day!

Jenn is not a fan of onions! She likes the flavor of onions she just doesn’t like the texture, So I felt this dish would be fine cause the onions were big enough and she could pick them out! BUT she told me she liked them in this dish! She said they were really good! I was like SEE onions are GOOD! I am determined to get her to like them!

So for this recipe you will need:

2 packages of Kielbasa – (I like Hillshire Farm Polska Kielbasa) Sliced into big chunks
2 red onions, sliced
2 yellow onions, sliced
2 red bell peppers, chopped into big bit size pieces
2 yellow bell peppers, chopped into big bit size pieces
2 green bell peppers, chopped into big bit size pieces

So I took a picture the 1st time of what you need and got this

I used my cast iron skillet for this dish. So I grabbed my big cast iron and coated the bottom with a little olive oil and heated it to medium high heat and threw the onions in…sizzle sizzle

and then sprinkled a little Creole/Cajun seasoning over the onions

saute the onions until they get a nice caramelization or translucent. I cooked mine until there was a little brownness on the edges and they were still a little crunchy. Took about 10-12 minutes

then add in the red bell peppers

So while the peppers are cooking get another skillet and preheat that to medium high heat and add in the Kielbasa
