One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A type of highly seasoned Polish sausage, typically containing garlic.
- ‘The remains of my second helping of kielbasa and potato salad sat before me.’
- ‘Later as night falls we light the candles and have a pleasant dinner of pita bread, kielbasa, cheese and a salad, which is more than welcome given the high temperature and humidity.’
- ‘Light-footed waitresses pace the linoleum floor slinging babka French toast and eggs with kielbasa, and - mostly - plates of pierogi to a mixed crowd of chatty locals and interlopers.’
- ‘In a roped-off corner of a San Diego street fair, with the odor of kielbasa and fried onions blooming in the warm mid-September air, about 80 girls sprawl like an occupying army.’

Polish, literally ‘sausage’.
