This hearty dish is a full meal in and of itself. I tend to serve it simply with some crusty bread and butter, Texas toast, or garlic bread.
Smoked sausage is any kind of sausage that is cured with smoke and ultra-low heat. The smoking process and low heat cook the sausage over the course of several hours to several days to fully cook the meat while imparting deep, smoky flavor.
Because smoked sausage is a way of curing sausage rather than a particular kind of sausage, there are too many varieties to list here. However, there are some smoked sausage varieties that are well-known everywhere. These are:
Smoked sausage is the same thing as kielbasa, but not for the reason you might think. While kielbasa is a smoked sausage, not all smoked sausage is kielbasa. Kielbasa is simply one of many kinds of smoked sausages out there.
Smoked sausage pairs well with a variety of different recipes. Its salty, smoked flavor makes it a great pairing with dishes like:
Mac and cheese
Smoked sausage is a great addition to pasta dishes, casseroles, and other such one-pot or one-skillet meals. It also pairs well with a variety of side dishes like French fries and other potato dishes, roasted vegetables, mac and cheese, baked beans, coleslaw, onion rings, potato salad, and the like.
