Remember a million years ago when the computer I used for blog pictures up and died? Well, it only just got up and running again (and will probably die again in about 5 minutes). I found a plethora of blog pics where the pictures were actually good  (something I have really been struggling with lately…) but it had been so long that I had no idea what they were. Except for this one, and that’s because even without seeing the pic, it was already on the menu for that very week.

This recipe is pretty easy to remember because it’s one of those dishes where you’re surprised how good it is since it’s so incredibly simple. I mean, it’s not a huge surprise because there’s bacon, potatoes, and sausage, after all, but you know what I mean.

I ate a lot of kielbasa growing up and I don’t know if it was that or other factors but I sort of…stopped eating it. Every once in a while , though, I have this intense craving for it. It’s one of those things where, when I want it I REALLY want it. And when I don’t, I REALLY don’t. Do you have ingredients like that?

Anyway, this dish is perfect for a weeknight, not only because it’s a one-pot meal, but also because it comes together very quickly. The potatoes are microwaved beforehand so you aren’t waiting for them to cook in the skillet, and while you’re heating them you can do other things, like cook the bacon and chop your sausage. I decided to use the bacon fat instead of the olive oil in the recipe because, why use oil when there is perfectly good bacon fat? Other than that and reducing the amount of Dijon by just a little, I stayed pretty true to the recipe. The ingredients in this are incredibly similar to German potato salad so if you like that, you will definitely like this.
