Spicy Summer Sausage

Grilling and summer are synonymous and this recipe is perfect for both. It has the perfect amount of kick to satisfy your need for a little heat. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 Tbsp. garlic French fry sauce
  • 1 white onion
  • 4 large Polska kielbasa
  • 4 jalapeño peppers
  • 4 hoagie buns
  • ½ C. grated Parmesan cheese
  • Chipotle chili aioli
  • Salt and pepper

First, heat up your grill (or in my case, my stove-top grill). Next, finely dice the onion and jalapeños. Heat a pan on your stove and add in half of your garlic French fry sauce and your onion and pepper mixture that you just chopped. Leave those to sauté for a few minutes.

I used this time to get my kielbasa on the grill. They don’t take long to cook at all so make sure you’re not getting ahead of yourself. They also tend to roll around a bit so do your best to make sure they’re cooked evenly. I tried to do one flip after about 4 or 5 minutes.

Going back to your pan, once the onions are translucent and the peppers are soft, remove the pan from the heat of the stove and add in the parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside for now.

Remove your kielbasa when they are fully cooked and prepare your hoagie buns for toasting. Spread the remaining garlic French fry sauce on the bun and toast on the grill until golden brown.

Now it’s time to assemble everything! Place a kielbasa on a bun and top with the onion and jalapeño mixture. Top that with as much chipotle chili aioli as you’d like and you’re ready to go!
