kaszanka Pizza (It's not a Pizza really!)Kaszanka is a Polish blood sausage which you'll find in most Polish shops. It tastes like a cross between Black Pudding and Haggis with a slightly more moist texture. Roasted with a selection of vegetables the sausages themselves have a tendency to break down, leaving you with a very hearty 'Soup'.They generally cost a little over £2 per Kilo pack so they are less than half the cost of a British gourmet sausage and for two people you'll easily have sufficient for two good meals.
The pizza component is actually nothing more than a giant Yorkshire pudding. You can buy a Yorkshire pudding mix from most supermarkets for less than 50p and all you need to do is add a couple of eggs and water. Just make sure your oil is smoking hot!
8 thick Kaszanka  Polish blood sausage
1 small Onion
1 finely chopped Carrot
2 cloves of Garlic (Crushed)
½ a shredded Savoy Cabbage
2 Vegetable stock cubes, enough to cover the Sausages
Grated Cheese (Cheddar)
For The Yorkshire Puddings (GF) A Yorkshire Pudding mix from the Supermarket will work fine if you don't need the Gluten Free version.
