This Keto Hash with Kielbasa is one of my favorite things to make in the kitchen. Hashes in general were really my go-to when I first started learning how to cook with a cast iron skillet and pair flavors together. As with most things there is a learning curve and there have been times when my cooking could have been confused with either chemistry class or a form of biological warfare, but now hashes are really my forte, plus they are a good way to clean out the fridge and put those leftovers to good use.
Studies show that the memories we associate with certain smells can be stronger than those associated with other senses. So from the time I started sautéing the peppers and onions all the way through the last bite, it was like having a flashback to every family vacation to Dollywood and every county fair I had ever visited. I can still smell it now as I’m writing this, those kielbasa stands had the most glorious smells wafting out into the crowds. Lord knows what kind of oil or other ingredients they might have been using, but they were so fragrant just walking past made your mouth start to water and your stomach begin to growl.
When you are preparing to make this recipe make sure you grab kielbasa’s (wait… is the plural of kielbasa kielbasi) that don’t contain added sugar, trust me it’s easier said than done. I’ve gone ahead and linked to some of my favorite options below.
