Expert Tips

  • Serve With: Serve Basil Breakfast Strata and the Kielbasa Kabobs together. Both can go in the oven together; they each bake for the same amount of time.
  • To Make Kielbasa Kabobs: Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Line baking sheet with foil. Cut sausage kielbasa on an angle into 1-inch chunks and thread on skewer. Mix 1/4 cup apricot preserves and 2 tbsp orange juice and brush over sausage. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes.
