Polish Boy – An Ohio Treat!

Moving on to the next state on the list, Ohio. The Polish boy gained popularity across the country when several of the Food Network stars featured this giant hot dog on the their shows. A hearty sandwich born in Cleveland and has a version of it on many menus across the state. Yelp even gives you a list of the top ten places to order this meal on a bun.

Made up of grilled kielbasa, fries, coleslaw and barbecue sauce, this recipe makes two sandwiches. We each at just half!

So lets get cooking!

Here’s How to Do it:

Cut the sausage in half lengthwise.

Brush the inside of the rolls with some olive oil.

Grill the sausage until it is hot all the way through and has some charred grill lines.

Grill the bun until it’s golden (not quite as long as mine).

Top each bun with four slices of sausage,

1/2 the coleslaw,

1/2 the fries,

and 1/2 the sauce –

Now open wide and take a bite!

It sounds a little strange, but this is one tasty and satisfying sandwich. As Michael Symon says, “Nothing tops it. Not even a silly, Philly cheesesteak”.
