I also love that you can increase the quantity of ingredients based on your family size!
Jan's Tip: Since I am gone for long hours during the day and the only part of this recipe that actually needs to cook is the potaotes, I set my crock pot to warm instead of low. It is just the right amount of heat all day to cook the potatoes to perfection without over cooking them or under cooking them.
Kielbasa, Potatoes with Green Beans:
approx. 4 servings
1 Kielbasa cut into 1 inch slices
4 potatoes peeled and diced into bite sized pieces (ok I really don't peel mine!)
1 can green beans drained
1 packet italian seasoning dressing mix (such as Good Seasons packet)
4 pats of butter (about 1 tablespoon each)
1/2 cup water
Layer diced potatoes in bottom of crock pot.
Layer green beans and kielbasa on top of potatoes
sprinkle the seasoning packet over the top of all the ingredients
place the butter pats across the top of the layered ingredients.
Cook on high 3 hours, low 5 hours or on warm for 6 or more hours.
Use a slotted spoon when serving, to drain off the liquid.
