I’ve been working on cleaning out my freezer this week, and at the bottom I happened to find a Kielbasa I bought on sale a while back. So today I am bringing you a recipe for Maple Brown Sugar Glazed Kielbasa in less than 10 minutes!
Being born and raised by midwest parents, Kielbasa was a staple for appetizer trays at tailgate parties. Usually it was just served heated and sliced, but I wanted to do something to change it up a bit and add a little balance to the salty spicy flavor. BRING OUT THE MAPLE SYRUP!
The recipe for this Maple Brown Sugar Glazed Kielbasa is so simple, I can’t wait to make this again the next time I need a quick hor’derve. The process is so simple, just cut up your Kielbasa, add it to the pan with maple syrup (real maple syrup not the fake Mrs. Butterworth’s stuff) and cook it down until it forms a thick syrup-like glaze on the sausage.
You will want to serve them warm since the glaze will get really sticky as it cools. My kids thought it was FABULOUS. And since I served it with fancy toothpicks, it fell into the “food kids can eat with sticks” category that is so popular in my house.
So if you are ever in a rush, or want a fast simple protein idea that is a little different, consider this sweet and salty treat. It is sure to be a big hit!
