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.
