It is made from grinding pork, spicing it with garlic + marjoram, then stuffing the spiced ground meat into casing. The casing may be bioengineered or natural (e.g. Intestine).

The spicy nature of the kielbasa distinguishes it from other sausages. Just like regular sausage as well, some types of kielbasa may be edible from the point of preparation. This is the dried kielbasa. Biala (also called white kielbasa) and Zwyczajna (or the regular kielbasa) should be cooked or baked before consuming. The ideal internal temperature for a well-cooked kielbasa is 160 degrees F.

Kielbasa can be found, made from other kinds of meat other than pork. It can be made from Turkey, beef, or a variety of meat. Served with great dishes such as potato dumpling or vegetables, inside soups and as sandwiches, kielbasa makes an appetizing breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

For the purpose of recipes explored here, our focus is on baked kielbasa or oven dishes. You’ll find them fascinating. Feel free to try out the recipes and share the outcome in the comment section.

Baking Kielbasa

Regular kielbasa and Biala are the kinds that you can bake. While you can bake Zwyczajna directly because it is slightly cured, Biala needs to be cooked before you bake it. Biala is the raw form kielbasa.

When you’re cooking your Polish sausage, you need some wide pot or pan that can take the sausage form freely. If the pot you have isn’t wide enough, that’s okay. Cut the sausage in 2 or 3 parts. It’s always preferred to bake your sausage in links before cutting it up if you’re using it in a recipe that requires chopped kielbasa.

Now, first put the sausage link in the pot and add enough water to have the link submerged. Turn up the heat on your stove to high until the sausage is boiling. Bring it down to low heat to let it simmer for about 30 mins uncovered. Dip your instant-read meat thermometer in the simmering and when it’s 168 degrees F, you’re ready to brown it in the oven.

Baking kielbasa, you need a baking dish that can freely take the link. Otherwise, cut it in two or three equal parts. The baking dish should sit in the oven center, uncovered, for a perfectly baked link.

Set your oven to heat at 325 degrees F. Flip continuously with prong within 5 mins interval. The link should be cooked within 20 mins. Use your instant-read meat thermometer to check if the sausage has cooked to 160 degrees F. Let it sit for a few minutes and serve with your preferred dish.

You can bake kielbasa with vegetables like carrots, onions, asparagus, or potatoes. Serve the sausage by itself as a snack or dessert. It’s perfect for cooks with a few or single mouth to feed since a link may serve only 3 average eaters, depending on how you serve it.

What You Need

24 pierogies (freezed)

1.8 lbs. kielbasa

Next, get a big bowl and combine your bell peppers, olive oil, onions, black pepper, and ½ tsp of kosher salt. Drop the onions mixture on the baking sheet as well using tongs. Spread them close to the kielbasa, using them as your edge.

Set your oven to heat at 400 degrees F. Put your pierogies in this big bowl. Add the tsp of kosher salt, canola oil, chili powder, tabasco, garlic powder, and onion powder to the potatoes casing. Toss them all together and lay the pies on the sheet. Make sure no one is touching the other. Also make sure they are sitting entirely on the sheet’s surface.

Put your baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the content for 15 mins. Bring out your baking pan and flip the pierogies. Place them back and bake another 15 mins. The pies should now be puffy, slightly browned at the edges. The kielbasa should be properly browned with the onions and pepper tender and crispy.

Your food is ready. Prepare some coleslaw and serve them together.
