Pairs well With:

In Polish cuisine, it seems that there is an almost infinite number of different sausages. Called “kielbasa,” in Polish, each kind is made according to different recipes, with varying amounts of spices, garlic, salt, pepper and smoked with various techniques. From national to regional and even family favorites, there’s truly a lot to sample when it comes to the variety of kielbasa in Poland!

However, if there were ONE, standard, national kielbasa, it would be the kielbasa called, “Zwyczajna,” (that translates to “regular” or “every-day”). Cooked and smoked, this “regular” polish sausage is made according to the most basic of all and the most popular Polish sausage recipes. It’s a standard that was developed in the 70's. It’s the balanced aroma, high content of spices like marjoram, garlic and black pepper and higher amount of fat that make this sausage a very tasty and commonly consumed sausage in Poland and Polish communities around the world. Zwyczajna has light color and mild, smokey flavor, along with a fine texture. It is finely ground, juicy and has a delicate casing so it is great to serve grilled, but also perfect for cooking with sauerkraut, pan frying and poaching.

It can also be great when enjoyed cold with a bit of mustard and can make a great addition to sauerkraut or classic Polish recipes and breakfasts.

1st time eating. Was delicious! Reminded us of what we had growing! Yum.


Closest tasting kielbasa to the ones made in the butcher shop where I grew up.

Polish goodness excellence

I found this website on a google search and wanted to make an authentic lunch for my dad, now he wants to take a 6 hr. trip to buy more (we can be home and back in a day he says).
Needless to say, this is the best Kielbasa I ever had. I laid it on some sauerkraut covered it with foil and baked on 300 for 3 hrs. (It was frozen). We devoured it and definitely will be buying again.
