One of my employees made this for a Christmas party a few years back. I loved it and so did everyone else. I got the recipe from her and added some things over the years. No complaints were heard : )

This, for me, was a great how-to on a recipe I was served but didn't know how to prepare. It came out exactly how I had it. I currently live outside of Buffalo and this is a common dish here so I felt compelled to learn it. I substituted a local brand smoked polish sausage for the regular polish sausage. Delicious. Next time I think I will use fresh mushrooms and sauté them with the onions as that's not really any extra work and will add another dimension of flavor. I also will go with Kluski noodles as that's what the Polish people here really like.
