Polish Kielbasas

Kielbasa is actually a Polish sausage, and it is very popular. It is always on the Polish dinner table on most any given day or on Christmas. The large variety of Kielbasa recipes include; eating the sausage on a sandwich, in soup or sauce, with vegetables, or eggs or cooked over an open fire. The sausage can be eaten heated or cold.

There are two main types of kielbasa in Poland: abnormal or dry. The advantage to dry kielbasa is that it keeps longer, but it is always eaten cold. In Poland, kielbasa is often used as a flavoring in several dishes and soup. The kielbasa is typically smoked. While most of the Polish kielbasa is made with pork, it is also made from beef, turkey, veal and lamb. Of course, the sausage always includes spices and garlic. Various regions of Poland each have their own way of making kielbasa.

    I love to eat dishes with sausages in it so this Polish Kielbasas recipe looks perfect. I think I would prefer the Kielbasas potato soup because it looks very tasty in the photo.

    My husband and I love kielbasa and I try to have it on hand for a quick dinner. We usually have it with sauerkraut, but I like your recipe for a one dish meal using cabbage. I'll be trying that soon! I want to try your recipe for kielbasa in soup. This looks similar to the potato based soup with pieces of kielbasa in it that my mother used to make. Thanks for sharing some great ideas!

    Some great sounding recipes here, Pamela! We like kielbasa as well as other types of sausage. There are many healthy versions of sausage now being made with various ingredients that we occasionally purchase at Costco. One dish meals such as the ones presented here are easy to prepare and a snap to clean up. A win-win! Thanks for your recipes. Voted up, useful and sharing.
