Recipes Creative Kielbasa and Mashed Potatoes

I came up with this dish just because I wanted to get creative in the kitchen and try something different. I cheated when I made this because I used instant mashed potatoes, canned vegetables, and powdered gravy mix. Even doing this it turned out good and we ate this like you would a Shepard’s pie by placing mashed potatoes on the plate and creating a hole in the center, adding the mixture then topping it with gravy. I was skeptical however I did it and everyone actually had seconds so I will definitely have to do this again.

What you will need:

1 packet of instant chicken gravy mix
1 packet of instant brown gravy mix
1 box of instant mashed potatoes (16 oz)
1 package of kielbasa sliced
1 6 oz bag of Tyson precooked chicken
1 medium white onion diced
1 orange bell pepper diced
2 tsp of garlic finely chopped
1 28 oz can of green beans
2 4oz cans of mushrooms stems and pieces
1 tsp diced jalapeno pepper
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp of butter
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cajun spice
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/8 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp greek seasoning
1/8 tsp Italian spice
1/8 tsp dried crushed red pepper

I used an electric skillet for the meat mixture and the stove top for the mashed potatoes and gravy.

1. In a skillet set on medium add extra virgin olive oil, onions, garlic, mushrooms, orange bell pepper, and jalapeno peppers cook until onions start to get tender stirring constantly
2. Add remaining ingredients and seasonings cover stirring occasionally
3. I a separate pan make entire box of instant mashed potatoes according to directions on box
4. Continue to cook mixture in skillet and prepare instant gravy according to directions
5. Place on plate and enjoy

Extra additive ideas for this dish would be whole kernel corn, diced tomatoes, chick peas, shredded cheese or even just top it with bread crumbs before serving.
