Kielbasa shows up a lot at our family dinners. Fresh kielbasa is almost always a side dish at Thanksgiving (truth be told, I actually prefer it to turkey), and it’s just not Easter around these parts if there isn’t a bowl of kielbasa and sauerkraut on the table. Actually, when Mama Soul and I lived in different states, she would mail me a card with $20 and a directive to go to the Polish deli to pick up kielbasa for Easter dinner. Can’t be without, donchaknow!
So, it was inevitable that we’d find a way to eat it for breakfast as well… and kielbasa and eggs was born.
This recipe features smoked kielbasa cooked with a bit of onion and wrapped up in an omelette. Reviews so far have been positive. I served this for dinner tonight (because breakfast for dinner is awesome) and ended up with nods of approval and clean plates. I count that as a win, for sure.
Also, I was able to test out the new Orgreenic pans with this recipe. My thoughts on them are as follows:
- You need to season the pans before you use them. I got lucky and JSoul did it for me. Men, take note: watching a guy season a pan is hot. I can’t explain why, it just is. I thoroughly enjoyed the show in my kitchen.
- They really are non-stick. I don’t think I could have gotten eggs to stick to that pan had I burnt them to a crisp. (Luckily, I didn’t. That totally would have ruined dinner.) But, I also assume this is because they were seasoned properly. I could see them losing their non-stick surface if the seasoning isn’t done.
- They are so non-stick that when I tried to flip my omelette, I had to chase the darn thing around the pan! Though, I admit, I far prefer this to having an omelette fused to the bottom of a pan and scraping it off while cursing under my breath.
- They don’t seem to conduct heat as well as my stainless pans. I did have to turn the heat up a little higher on this pan, but it was only a slight adjustment. If I were trying to get a nice sear on something, I’d probably stick with my stainless. I just love the way my stainless sears. If I’m just trying to cook something and a sear is unimportant, the Orgreenic seems like a good option.
All in all, I think the Orgreenic pans are worth checking out. I’m sure I’ll be using mine again in the near future.
Now, on to the kielbasa and eggs recipe. The amounts listed below are for a single omelette. Feel free to double or triple as necessary.
