This is my intrepertation of our Polish Dinner, I have had and made Pierogies many times, but on our trip to a newly opened store with many Polish Speciality items, we found these Uszka, & Kluski Dumplings, thinking they were similiar to Pierogies, they look like baby Pierogis, so I just created my own dish, and they were really good. My HUSBAND especially enjoyed my creative spin on this dish, which made me happy. Don't know if this is how they are normally done, but this is my intrepetation, and they turned out phenominal with lots of flavor,so I know I will be making them again real soon.

How to Make Polish Dinner

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter in a very large skillet, (I USED MY ELECTRIC SKILLET TO FIT IT ALL IN ONE DISH) Add peppers, onions & apples to skillet and allow to brown slightly. Add drained sauerkraut.
  2. Cut slits in polish sausage on the diagonal in about 3 inch intervals, add to skillet, then add brown sugar and apple juice,Cover with lid, and lower heat. Allow to simmer.
  3. In the mean time add at least 4 quarts of water to a large pot, add 1 tsp salt, and bring to boil, when water comes to boil, add the uszka (meat Noodles) then return to a boil, and boil for 1 minute, they will rise to top, remove with slotted spoon, to a small container, then bring water back to boil, and add the Kluski Dumplings, and boil for 3 to 4 minutes then remove from water, then add both dumplings and noodles to skillet with polish sausage, cover with lid and allow to steam for a few minutes. Then serve on a large platter when sausages are all cooked & everything is hot.
  4. This was a great recipe for us, I pride myself in making new and different food items, and weather I made it the traditional way or not, both my husband and I truly enjoyed it. I know I will be making it again real soon. If you have other suggestions for this item please let me know. I love new recipes.
