Lazy Dinner – Tofurky Kielbasa

Well when I’m lazy and don’t feel like spending much time cooking, this is always a good meal to make. We grill up some Tofurky Kielbasa, fry up some Hungarian hot peppers and onions, and dish out some Bubbies’ Sauerkraut. Rob likes to eat his kielbasa with bread or on a bun with mustard (usually hot mustard). I prefer mine plain and sliced, without bread or a bun. I’m also not much of a mustard fan.

Rob and my parents also like the Tofukry Beer Brats but I don’t really care for them. The Italian Sausage is ok but I rarely buy it. I tend to buy the Tofurky Kielbasa when it’s on sale at Whole Foods and freeze it until I’m ready to use it.

Bubbies’ Sauerkraut is made without sugar, vinegar, or preservatives. It might seem a little pricey but it’s worth it. In Metro Detroit, you can find Bubbies at Whole Foods and Nino Salvaggio.

    This is a dinner I haven’t eaten before. Never tried kielbasa (much less Tofurky Kielbasa) and I’ve also never tried sauerkraut. I must branch out and try these things. Especially if it’s a good lazy fall back dinner. Mmmm!

    Hee hee… Bubbie is Yiddish (and German?) for “Grandmother” and it’s what my nephews and nieces call my mom. So i got a kick out of that sauerkraut! I like that brand anyway, i’ve seen “her” around.

    Tofurkey is goodness in a package. I’m a fan to be sure. Haven’t had this Kielbasa one, but will look for it.

    The dinner looks smashing, Emmy, really. Hope you’re having a gooooooooooood weekend!

    That’s a german meal if I’ve ever seen one. I make things like this occassionally too, I like saurkraut. I haven’t tried tofurky links, but my family really enjoys the lite life zesty italian links.

    We don’t generally eat turkey here so that is probably why we don’t get tofurky either.

    I had sauerkraut for the first time in years last week and really liked it. It was from a German delicatessen here who has it made locally and it was quite crunchy and not too vinegary. Will get it again.

    That looks so yummy. I love cabbage in all its forms, and particularly sauerkraut. My husband’s family is German, so that looks very familiar. Sometimes for dinner, we just cook potatoes and sauerkraut together. Now I have to try Tofurky kielbasa!

    Umm…this is totally unrelated to your food post, but is that plate one of your Fire King finds? I really like it and you have inspired me to start collecting some of their coffee mugs….: )

    Hi Aurora’s Mom, feel free to comment about vintage kitchenware to any of my posts LOL 🙂

    That particular plate is Pyrex restaurantware. It’s specifically marked “Pyrex, Tableware by Corning” on the back. I actually don’t know the name of this particular pattern. I think I bought these divided plates on eBay a few years ago. I don’t buy a lot of breakable stuff on eBay anymore because people in general are lousy at packing items.

    I have five of these divided dishes. I have an assortment of other sizes, bowls, and mugs in this pattern. I buy it wherever I find it (if the price is right), usually at estate/garage sales, flea markets, and occasionally eBay.

    That’s wonderful that you’ve started to collect Fire King mugs. I’m so flattered I was able to help inspire you 🙂 I have so much fun collecting them. There is such a variety of mugs available and that it keeps it interesting. You never know what you’ll find.

    I’ll have to take a picture soon of the nifty Fire King sugar/creamer I have. It’s stackable. The creamer part sits on top of the sugar bowl.
