Eating a food like kielbasa is a way to enjoy complex flavors without having to complete a complex recipe. The pork and beef sausage traditionally features a savory combination of marjoram and garlic. Some sausages have a slight mustard taste and others are simply mild and salty. Enjoying these flavors can be as simple as placing a piece of kielbasa into the oven. Once cooked, you can enjoy them sliced, on a bun or added to a variety of casseroles, soups, salads and other dishes.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Cut your kielbasa into one to three large pieces so it can fit in your baking dish. Do not slice yet if your recipe calls for sliced kielbasa. Leave the kielbasa in one piece if it fits in the pan without pressing up against the sides.

Step 3

Place the baking dish into the oven on the center rack.

Step 4

Bake for roughly 15 to 20 minutes or until the insides of the kielbasa pieces are steaming hot and measure 160 F on a meat thermometer.

Step 5

Remove and allow the kielbasa to rest for about 3 minutes, so it can cool.

Step 6

Slice the kielbasa and eat or add to your favorite kielbasa recipe.
