If your not lucky enough to be able to find fresh Polish sausage this can be made with just smoked kielbasa. Personally I put both types of sausages in this dish. I have also cooked this dish in a crockpot after I have cooked the onions, and sausages and fried the bacon in a separate pan then added everything to the crockpot after the first few steps were completed. It is best to make this dish the day before to let the flavors as my mother likes to say " get acquainted "
