My mother is Polish (I am first generation) and she has been making a variation of this since I was small. I will tell you that in Poland, the potatoes are always "mushy" in the recipes. It may just be cultural but that is how she made it. She didn't use sausage in it growing up, rather potatoes, bell peppers and onions with salt, pepper and paprika. Polish people use very simple ingredients, sticking to pantry basics. I cooked the sausage on the side and served this as more of a side dish. Also, if you want another great Polish side dish, slice thinly peeled cucumbers mixed with mayo and a little sour cream with salt and pepper. Also a staple side dish is garden tomatoes sliced and placed around a plate with very thinly sliced onions, salt, pepper and olive oil. Makes a beautiful presentation but is also very easy.
