Fall Comfort Food: Polish Sausage from Nolechek's Meats
What's the difference between Polish Sausage and Kielbasa? The answer may surprise you. Shakespeare said it best: What's in a name? That which we call a sausage by any other name would taste as…good. That's right; they're both referring to the same product! Call it Kielbasa, Kolbasa, or even Knublewurst. Here at Nolechek’s, we just call our Polish Sausage plain delicious.
Polish Sausage is a treat at any time of the year, but it's especially comforting when Wisconsin’s crisp autumn weather comes around. Imagine waking up on a frosty morning to a hearty breakfast of steaming hot Polish Sausage drizzled with fresh maple syrup. The beauty of Polish Sausage is its versatility; breakfast, lunch, or dinner…and it's especially great for fall football season! Here's just a few serving suggestions:
What tailgate party is complete without some grilling? Keep it simple on game day with a crowd-pleasing play on the classic sausage-and-peppers skillet. Start with Nolechek's Hickory Smoked Short Polish Sausages (the garlic sausage that fits on a bun!) and simmer them in beer - the darker the better. While the sausages are soaking, toss some oil, bell peppers, onions, and your favorite seasonings in a skillet and cook until the peppers and onions are just tender. Then, remove the sausages from the beer bath and grill until lightly browned. Place a sausage on a bun, pile on the peppers and onions, and top with a squirt of spicy mustard. Your guests will be cheering for you and the home team!
Speaking of fun and easy grilling ideas, Nolechek's Polish Sausages are perfect for shish kabobs. Combine skewered sausage slices with fresh pineapple chunks, onions, and colorful bell peppers and baste the shish kabobs with your favorite marinade - we like teriyaki or sweet BBQ sauce. Another shish kabob idea is sausage veg kabobs, with halved red potato slices, mushrooms, and zucchini, basted in Italian dressing.
However you grill it, mix things up with a variety of sausage flavors from Nolechek's. For a classic taste, choose from Unsmoked Polish Sausage with Garlic or Hickory Smoked Garlic Polish Sausage. If garlic isn't for you, serve up Nolechek's Plain Polish Sausage. And, for a perfect Wisconsin Polish Sausage bite, pick up some Garlic Polish Sausage with Sauerkraut.
Happy Fall, Y’All.
