Sweet Onion Kielbasa

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by HappyMommy1422

This is a very simple recipe I clipped from the newspaper. I make this with turkey kielbasa to lower the fat content and usually use Newcastle or Sam Adams as the beer. The recipe is intended as an appetizer but I see no reason why you couldn't serve it as a main dish with a side of rice and a veggie.

This was a simple, weeknight meal for us served with onion rice and roasted brussels sprouts. I can see how it would make an excellent party appetizer and will consider it for my next get-together. The men should love it.
