You will find plenty of recipes on here to make. And most that I have found seem to be simple enough, but takes a good amount of prep time.

Go to Polish store and buy frozen pierogi. Easy to make. Boil water and dump then in. Easy quick and delicious.
After you find that Polish store, of course :)

Pierogi is lovely and so simple!! I also like frying them with onions...Simply delicious!! Also, all the various types of Polish sausages are awesome (don't know their names, i let my Polish boyfriend direct me)! However, they are all equally as nice.

I lol'd so much at that .. sorry i saw the hidden innuendo there!

Kielbasa
Kabanos
are two varieties which spring quickly to mind

lol, I actually didn't mean for there to be an Innuendo, but well spotted, even I didn't notice that, and I am pretty good at them usually!

Kielbasa, yes...That one is my favourite, now I see the name written down!

Also, don't know how true it is, but my friend who has polish parents but live here in the UK, says that Polish cheese cake is to die for?? - Anyone vouch for that, never tried it personally.

Kielbasa

Is kielbasa really a specific variety? Because in the shops here there are loads of kielbasy...not one specifically.

Hmmm, that picture looks like something I have tried before...But don't think it was polish cheesecake, or someone didn't really know what they were giving me! lol

here is a standard polish meal and it's delicious----breaded pork chops,potatoes in butter and bacon bits and green beans smothered in bread crumbs---I'm hungry just thinking about it !!!

Now, I wanna try Polish

Go to a Polish shop and get some "placzki ziemniaczane" (potato pancakes) mixture... just add water, an egg, and fry them. They are almost as good (and much quicker) than the real thing. And, considering the price of potatoes, probably not much more expensive either. One pack (£1.60) makes about 10 large ones. I have mine with soured cream.

Pierogi is lovely and so simple!!

But its a pain in the arse to make at home same as Gołabki, ive made both at home and will probably never do it again. Schabowe is probably one of the easier dishes served with Mash potatoe and red a salad or two.

or some kind of pork sos, even easier less hassle and tastes great.

Yes, if you have never made pierogi before sometimes no one would be able to recognise them as pierogi lol but they are delicious and once you started making them - it's not that hard, unless you dont have to make them too many.

As for golabki - what's there difficult to do? u just slightly cook cabbage, then mix meat with rice, add some spice, put the filler into one leaf of cabbage, then braise it and that's all.

out of the two id prefer to make pierogi, Golabki requires patience, lots of cooking space and a skilled hand.

I mean:
blanch cabbage leaves then chill
cook rice then chill
cook meat then chill
lay out cabbage leaves then stuff and roll, thats tricky stuff.

Its a shame there are no real decent shelf products for golabki.

Since when have kluski śląskie been noodles? They are dumplings.

Polish food looks simple but take plenty of time to prepare. If you can buy frozen, best bet and fool proof. For pierogi just fry up some bacon and onion in butter and sprinkle over. "To die for".

Good Luck!!

That's for sure. Here are some pre-packaged Polish food items (fresh from Beckski's freezer, lol.)

When you're lacking cooking time to prepare homemade Polish food... it's Kasia to the rescue! I find Kasia food products at most Polish and European delicatessens :)
