Polish National Home Sausage and Potato Dinner
&W's Marcia Kiesel's foil packages are an homage to the Polish National Home in Hartford, Connecticut, where she and her family have lunch after visiting the nearby Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. The ingredients, which cook in minutes, are an array of classic Polish foods: kielbasa, spicy cabbage and potatoes. As with most Eastern European dishes, it's best served with lots of sour cream.
The cooked potatoes, cabbage mixture and scallion sour cream can be refrigerated, separately, overnight. Bring the cabbage to room temperature before proceeding.
At the Polish National Home, you'd most likely enjoy a draught Okocim, a lightly hoppy Polish pilsner, with this hearty meal. If you're not at the Polish National Home, the odds of finding Okocim decrease dramatically, so try a similar beer instead, like the crisp Pilsner Urquell.
