Cheesy Kielbasa Rice and Broccoli Skillet
If you can believe it, the boys started swim team practices this week. I’m still in shock. Reece’s indoor soccer league just finished last week and he’s got a few more weeks of basketball still to go. Bryce has his last basketball practice and game this week and then he’ll be all done. But man, our schedule!
I consider getting a meal made and on the table a monumental success each and every night it happens. I rely so much on quick skillet dinners that are a complete meal unto themselves. Today I’m sharing a new favorite, Cheesy Kielbasa, Rice and Broccoli Skillet. It’s got the cheese. The rice. The broccoli. And a personal favorite of mine, Polska Kielbasa.
And then once you’ve tried this and you’re hooked on kielbasa, make sure you give my KILEBASA, PEPPERS AND POTATO HASH SKILLET a try – it’s legit.
My family absolutely devoured this easy, cheesy skillet dinner and I know your family will love it too. I’m always a fan of one pot recipes that don’t require a lot of clean up 😉 Feel free to substitute in cauliflower for the broccoli and use whatever cheese you have on hand – it will be delicious no matter what!
