This recipe is a traditional Polish dish, usually served around Christmas time. I first came across this dish on holidays about 7 years when visiting Warsaw in Poland. It is usually served with the traditional Polish sausage called Kielbasa.
Kielbasa are flavored with garlic, pimento and cloves. Kielbasa comes in thick 2-inch diameter links, and is usually sold precooked, and sometimes fresh. Polish kielbasa comes already cooked and only needs to be heated before serving.
For handiness sake I have used “Truly Jumbo Suasages” which are available in most supermarkets.
