When I was a kid I was a member of the San Diego Navy Sailing Club, just a bit south of the amphib. base on Coronado Island. When it was too foggy to sail right away, I’d hang out in the cafeteria and have a Polish sausage and a cup of hot chocolate. This is how to cook a Polish sausage the SDNSC way:
Slice the Polish sausage crosswise, a little more than half way through. Space the slices 1/2" to 3/4" apart.
Turn the sausage over and slice in the same way between the previous slices.
Cook in hot oil. As it expands, the cuts you made will make it look like an accordion. But importantly, it A) allows the inside to cook quickly; and B) makes the outside of the slices a little “well done”, which is tasty.
Drain the sausage on paper towels and put it onto a hot dog bun. Add mayonaise and chopped, raw, white onions.
I hear you thinking, “Deep fried Polish sausage? With mayonaise? I vomit in your general direction, you fiend!”
No, really. It’s actually quite good. It’ll kill you if you eat too many, but once or twice a year is probably okay. Go ahead. give it a try.
