Recovering from a Heart Attack!!!

Man, I have been looking for this recipe for weeks!!! I have been so upset that I lost it, I've been asking everyone I could think of if I had ever emailed it to them. I could have kicked myself for never blogging about it! I mean come on - isn't that why we started this blog!?! ;) lol... Anyway, here is a wonderful recipe that is sure to make your "keeper" list and hopefully not clog too many arteries!!!

Warm German Potato Salad with Kielbasa

1 1/2 lb. red potatoes, sliced into 1/4"-thick rounds
1 T. olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 lb. smoked kielbasa, sliced into 1/4"-thick rounds
1 T. olive oil
1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 T. olive oil
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. Dijon mustard
2 t. minced fresh thyme
1/2 cup celery, diced
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450° with rack in lower third. Coat baking sheet with nonstick spray. Toss potatoes with oil, salt, and pepper on the prepared baking sheet. Arrange in a single layer and roast for 10 minutes. Stir potatoes and continue roasting until browned and cooked through, about 10 more minutes. Saute kielbasa in 1 T. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Add onion and saute until soft and lightly browned, 3 minutes. Stir in vinegar, 2 T. oil, sugar, mustard, and thyme; simmer 3–4 minutes. Keep warm while potatoes roast. Add celery, salt, and pepper to kielbasa mixture just before potatoes are done—not too soon or celery will lose its green color. Drizzle warm dressing over potatoes and toss gently with a spatula to coat. Serve salad warm.

Oh, I forgot to mention that with four kiddos - I use the Blue Ribbon Sausage. It's not as spicy as the others!!!
