SANDRA'S KIELBASA SLIDER INDOOR PICNIC LUNCH

I always start by making my coleslaw mid-morning
to allow 2 hrs. for the flavors to meld, which
makes the remainder of the meal
a quick n' easy prep...
Servings: (2)
Prep: 5 Mins. |
Cook: 5 Mins.|
(+ Let coleslaw refrigerate 2 hrs. for flavors to meld before serving meal)

INGREDIENTS

*Coleslaw:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon celery seeds
4 cups shredded green cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
1 (8 oz.) can pineapple tidbits, drained (or crushed pineapple, drained)

**Enhanced Baked Beans:
1 (8 oz. can) baked beans (Recommend Bush's Original)
1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon red pepper, finely chopped
½ teaspoon light olive oil

***Kielbasa Sliders:
½ teaspoon light olive oil
2 smoky kielbasa sausages, cut in half lengthwise,
--and scored on outside to prevent curling while searing
2 onion hamburger buns, toasted
--Ketchup
--Sweet relish
--Yellow mustard

METHOD

*Prepare Coleslaw:
In a large bowl, add all first four ingredients and whisk until smooth, add the remaining ingredient and toss to combine; cover, and refrigerate 2 hours for flavors to meld before serving.

** Prepare Enhanced Baked Beans:
In a small saucepan, add the olive oil and heat to medium, and gently saute the onions and red peppers for 2 minutes, add the beans and when the boiling point is reached, reduce the heat and gently simmer until sliders are done.

***Prepare Kielbasa Sliders:
In a medium skillet, add the olive oil and heat to medium, and add the pieces of kielbasa sausage flat side down, and cook without disturbing to caramelize for about 4 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, add your buns to the toaster, and watch closely so they are just lightly browned. Spread the tops and bottoms of the buns evenly with ketchup, sweet relish and yellow mustard.  Cut the kielbasa to size to fit buns, place on bottoms of buns, and top with other half of bun.  Cut in half, and serve as shown in photograph above. Enjoy!

I made this quaint picnic lunch for my husband and me today, and it was light and delightful on this fabulously sunny day in Southeast Alaska.
