Polish White Sausage (Biała Kiełbasa), served at Easter in Poland, is a dish I wait for all year. The key is finding good quality white sausage called biała kiełbasa in Polish. Polish White Sausage is a raw sausage, so it needs to be cooked well. While it can be boiled or fried, I choose to pop it in the oven with some onions and red bell peppers for a lovely hot dish for our family's Easter feast.

This dish also works well when you have guests or are preparing sausage sandwiches.

If you already love Polish White Sausage or haven't tried it before, give this recipe a try for an authentic Polish meal at Easter or anytime.

A pan of scored, white sausages with onion and red bell peppers.

 1 lb Polish White Sausage
 2 large onions
 2 red bell peppers
 2 tsp oil

Slice the onions and red bell peppers into slivers. Begin frying them in a pan with some oil.

I use a pan that can go from the stovetop directly into the oven, but you can transfer the vegetables from a frying pan into a baking dish.


Now prepare the white sausages by scoring them with a knife three times in each direction.


When the onions and bell peppers just start to soften, arrange the sausages on top and place the whole thing in the oven at 375 °F for about 45 minutes. The vegetables should completely soften and the sausage should slightly brown.


Serve as is or with one of the sauces in the recipes below.
