  • Try different rolls like potato and pretzel. I prefer softer bread for this recipe.
  • Keep the slaw more on the vinegary side because of all of the other rich flavors.
  • Screw it! Add some cheese. Why not?

Common Questions

  1. Do I have to butterfly the kielbasa?

No siry Bob. This just adds another depth of flavor I really enjoy. Just heat the kielbasa up as you see fit.

2. Could I do this with a hot dog?

I mean, probably. Do it and let me know!
