Have you had the Polish hot dog from the Costco food court? Would you like to be able to make your own at home? These Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Polish Sausages are the same ones that they serve in the food court!
I’ve actually never had a Polish hot dog from the Costco food court, but I’ve seen a lot of people raving about how delicious they are. I picked up these Kirkland Signature Polish Sausages during my most recent Costco trip so I could try making them at home.
Other hot dogs and sausages from Costco include the Costco Siwin Japanese Style Sausage, Costco Smokey River Meat Company Turkey Breakfast Sausages, Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Wieners and the Costco Olympic Craft Meats Garlic Sausage.
Location in Store
These Polish sausages are found in the refrigerated section near the cheeses, deli meats and other sausages. The item number is 575676.
These sausages are nearly identical to the Kirkland Signature Beef Wieners in size and texture. The taste is very similar too. The casing and fat content of the meat seem exactly the same as the Beef Weiners.
The only real difference is in the seasoning, though it’s certainly not a dramatic difference. It’s hard to explain as it’s subtle. I would say the Kirkland Polish Sausages are a bit more garlicky and have a very slight spiciness/heat to them that the Beef Wieners are missing.
I was expecting a hot dog that’s quite different than the Beef Wieners, but I was surprised by how minor the differences are in a taste comparison. I’m not disappointed by the similarities, because I love the Beef Wieners and find the Polish Sausages equally delicious. Only a true hot dog connoisseur will be able to tell the difference between the two!
The price is $17.99 Canadian a package of 14 beef Polish sausages at Costco. These sausages are quite large, so the price is reasonable. You’re not saving much over buying one ready to eat at the food court though!
The Costco Polish sausages are sure to be a hit at any barbecue this summer! The sausages can be stored in the refrigerator for quite a while – the best before date is about a month from the date we purchased them. If you’re not going to eat them all right away I highly suggest freezing them. That’s what we do!
There are few different ways to cook the sausages: on the grill, broiled in the oven, cooked in water in a pan on the stove, or in the microwave. We always grill our sausages/hot dogs and that’s the method I would recommend for heating them, especially during the summer.
One Costco Kirkland Signature Polish Sausage contains 370 calories, 31 grams of fat, five grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, three grams of sugar, 16 grams of protein and 1,250 milligrams of sodium! That’s a TON of sodium. If you’re sodium sensitive due to a medical condition, I recommend steering clear of these. Even healthy people probably don’t want to eat these too often – they fall into the junk food/treat category for sure.
The ingredients list on the Polish sausages doesn’t surprise me. I’m glad beef is the first ingredient listed. There are a few food additives/preservatives along with beef, water and sugar. The Polish Sausages are all beef, gluten-free and don’t have meat by-products or corn syrup. They’re a product of the USA.
Give it a try!
I think the Polish Sausages from Costco are perfect for a barbecue or group meal. They’re pretty tasty! They aren’t remotely healthy though, so consuming them in moderation is wise!
