Zesty BBQ Kielbasa

Cassie *


This recipe is an old school favorite of mine, that our cafeteria served. I was lucky enough to get the recipe from my best friends mother who worked in the cafeteria...been enjoying them ever since.

My kids just love this recipe...makes a great appetizer and can easily make a double recipe, for parties..

I hope you try them sometime...

How to Make Zesty BBQ Kielbasa


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In a small to medium skillet, brown onions in butter.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk all other ingredient, except kielbasa.

    Add mixture to skillet, mix with onion and simmer a few minutes.
  3. In a small casserole dish, spread Kielbasa slices.
  4. Pour sauce over Kielbasa and toss to coat.

    You could probably use 2 pounds of sausage with the amount of sauce, we just like ours saucier. Any less sauce with a pound of kielbasa is too dry for our tastes.
  5. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until good and bubbly. I then place under broiler to caramelize a few minutes. Just my preference.

    Serve with toothpicks. Enjoy!
