Kielbasa and Smoked Sausage Recipes
Kielbasa, also known as Polish sausage, is a tasty smoked sausage that can be used in main dish recipes, casseroles, soups, stews, sandwiches, and appetizers.
Thinly sliced and fried, it even makes a delicious breakfast meat to serve with eggs, French toast or pancakes. Or add it to your favorite breakfast casserole instead of sausage links or patties.
If you don't have kielbasa, feel free to substitute with andouille sausage, chorizo, hot dogs, or another smoked or fully cooked sausage.
I used... spicy andouille sausage in this first recipe (pictured) but kielbasa would be an excellent choice as well. The sliced sausage is added to the cauliflower florets and roasted to perfection. A topping of cheddar cheese is the perfect finishing touch.
