Being Polish and growing up in a heavily Polish community has it's perks. Namely, incredible Polish food is readily available. This is my spin on a pretty standard Polish meal, we calle em Ya Ya rolls.
Here's what you'll need:
Fresh Polish kielbasa, the good stuff from the local market. Johnsonville is not good stuff, so dont even go there.
Beer, some for the cooking, some for the drinking. A bit of water
Sauerkraut, it puts hair on your chest
Poatoes, whatever you fancy.
Egg roll wrappers, i buy the pre made ones cause no one but Joe got time to make that shit homemade
Shredded cheese (optional) i like white cheddar
Sour cream, small tub
Horseradish, again, the stuffs known for growing hair
To get things started, put your kielbasa in a 9x13 glass baking dish. Add i deucer of any old shitty beer. Now add some water until your sausage in submerged about half way. Foil it up and get it in the oven. Bake at 325 for 1 1/2 hrs.
Now get started on your sauerkraut. Get that stuff rinsed well in a collander and transfer it to a mixing bowl. All the spices i add here is totally by eye, but you want brown sugar, fresh cracked black pepper and caraway seed. Mix to combine and get it on the stove. Simmer it low and slow for 1 1/2 hrs, stirring ocassionally.
Potatoes, rinse, peel and get them simmering in water to be prepped for mashing. Do your mashed taters however you like.
When your kielbasa is done, get it diced up fairly small and set aside.
Your sauerkraut is also done now, so get it off the stove and prepare to start assembling.
Fill wrappers first w potatoe, then a bit of sausage and top it w a bit of kraut, or cheese, or both, whatever the hell you like.
Wrap all that goodness up and set aside.
Now make the secret dipping sauce. Take your small tub of sour cream and add your horseradish to it and combine well. The more horseradish, the more bite. I like bite.
Set your dipping sauce in the fridge until it's time to eat.
Get your fry daddy ready to roll. Mine takes forever to heat up, so i always have it prepped to go long before i'm ready.
Fry for about one minute in small batches until done.
Your delicious Ya Ya rolls are done, bust out the dipping sauce and strap on da feedbag.
I have issues inserting photographs w their corresponding dialogue, so i'm just going to dump them and hope it all makes sense. Now put some hair on your chest already.
