"I've had this recipe for about 20 years. It was attained through the Yankee Kitchen Radio show (recipe radio show hosted by the late Gus Saunders on the AM radio dial in Massachusetts). My family and I really enjoy this way of cooking kielbasa. I've served it as an appetizer and also for lunch/dinner. The kids enjoy it. This kielbasa recipe was submitted by "Angela" where it is her son-in-laws recipe. He won a prize for this recipe at the Chicopee Kielbasa Festival (festival that focuses on Kielbasa, Polish food, polka dancing, games, etc. where contestants can exhibit their Polish food talents). Sounds like lots of fun, doesn't it!"

I cut the recipe down for 1 lb of kielbasa and we had them for appies during the Pre-Super Bowl. They were delish and we liked them much!

What a great addition to our meal today. I served these as an appetizer -- it was simple to make and not overly sweet. A definite dish I would take to gatherings or make again just for the two of us. : )

Yum. I made these for an appy night and really enjoyed them. They were simple and the sauce was full of flavor. Thanks for sharing, Nat.

These were tasty little slices, but a little too salty for me (just me, and also maybe the fresh kielbasa I used). The glaze was really good though, and DH loved this.
