Worked out well for me tonight. Everyone liked it including my 7-year old daughter & 24-year old son. I followed the recipe exactly (I'm not confident enough in my cooking to tweak things the first go-round). Might try to double the sauce like some others have said but it was very tasty as is.
I had to cook my potatoes a lot more for them to be soft, no biggie. I used smoked sausage instead, I also didn't have Dijon mustard and used regular yellow mustard, turned out great! ?? the family devoured it in no time and I have to make it again tonight, delish!!
This is an enjoyable fall recipe. It's very filling. I suggest coming the potatoes a little more if you're going to cut them like the picture. Or cut them to about 1/2in to cook faster. I doubled the sauce, except for the thyme as others suggested. I used turkey smoked sausage. Since it included a starch and a veggie, I paired this with sliced apples. My picky eater thought it was spicy, probably because of the Dijon mustard. My "I'll eat anything" eater ate it all. My husband and I thought it was decent.
My family and I really liked this dish. I didn't have kielbasa on hand, so I used bratwurst instead and it still tasted really good. I doubled up the sauce ingredients for the perfect sauce amount. I sprinkled a little bit of salt and used the bacon grease for extra flavour. The only thing else different I would do is microwave the potatoes for a bit longer, but other than that this is an awesome recipe!
This was an interesting dish with all good ingredients. I prepared exactly as recipe says and although my bf and I ate it, my son was not thrilled at all. Important to note is that he has autism so I believe the sweetness of the meat turned him off. I thought it was okay but probably won't make again.
