His sausage is absolutely delicious. Welcome back Frank!
nicknamess - Apr 02, 2010 5:59 AM
good for him - that's really great.
YouDontKnowMe - Apr 02, 2010 6:19 AM
Thank you, Pan Jakubczak. God bless you. As for recommendations, the brats, fresh Polish and smoked Polish are all very good. My kids love the kiszka. The little dried snack sausages are very good, too.

Yeah, this sausage is great......i just wish he would have moved the shop

Thank you Frank! This is the very best fresh Polish sausage I have ever had! I drive an hour into Milwaukee just for this! Dziekuje!

When my dad retired from Klement's Sausage many years ago, he too was bored after some time, he started to work for Frank during the holidays, "for fun" as my dad would say. My dad could not believe the "quality" meat Frank would use, no fillers, no substandard cuts. This is the real deal folks. Best Hungarian sausages anywhere!! Shame on the Milwaukee Journal for running this story on a Friday, this is torture! Wesołego Alleluja, STO LAT Frank!!

Someone needs to step up and speak to Frank, so when he decides to retire again, the business can seamlessly go an with new owners. Any takers out there? In a bad economy, people still love their sausage. Now is the time. Turnkey business in an established neighborhood.

Unfortunately, I am 1400 miles away. But I can still smell the sausage from here.... Thanks Frank.

More power to you, Frank. We appreciate your fine work.

Grand parents went there, parents have been and still go there, and so do I - three generations of loyal customers. ALWAYS have provided superior meats....

Best fresh Polish in the land. PERIOD!!!

Now, I'm hungry for sausage! I will have to go and check his shop out-sounds yummy.
Aquitas - Apr 02, 2010 8:48 AM
I will be traveling 2200 miles in three weeks to get some of the best sausage in the world from Frank. His smoked hams are without equal!
joe71 - Apr 02, 2010 9:12 AM
The smoked Hungarians are the best. Throw them on the grill and you will never go back to brats.
carbonware - Apr 02, 2010 9:28 AM
My congratulations to Frank, I look forward to tasting his sausage.

This man is an INSIRATION. He has a gift, and is using it. Good for him and for us.

I was lamenting the loss of this treasure as Easter approached! My brother in Denver was distraught that he wouldn't be getting his fresh Polish and Slovenian sausage sent to him in Denver on a regular basis. Talk about the resurrection!!!
Switch72 - Apr 02, 2010 11:14 AM
Every Easter and Christmas I have to make the trip to the European Homemade Sausage shop so I can supply my father, 2 older brothers and sometimes even Uncles with their craving for kiska. I grew up eating this on Sunday mornings - although I have been told by friends who try it now that it is "an acquired taste!" EHS was the only place I was ever able to find it. I am so glad to hear that Frank has come out of retirement! Unfortunately I didn't know about this sooner - I won't be able to make it there this weekend! I will definitely be going there soon though!

OMG!!! This just made my year! I am so excited to hear that Frank will continue his sausage-making. This is the BEST sausage in the state, and that says a lot because Wisco knows sausage. I was so disappointed when I heard the shop was closing. I went there around X-mas and bought all the Slovenian (fresh and smoked) that I could handle. Try the hunter sausage too!! Woo hoo!!

Welcome back. My father is also an "old world" butcher and sausage maker (in business for about 25 years until the mid eighties) now nearing the age of eighty. Yes old world sausage makers are a dying breed, but so are consumers who know quality. Sausage and smoked meats today are mostly nothing like they were years ago. Chopped pureed meat mixed in with ground meat vs. solid hand trimmed portions of pork and beef. Msg in most brands so expensive spices can be cut back. Water added to hams and bacon so they can be sold at a cheaper price. Smoke flavoring versus real hardwood smoke. Welcome back Frank.

Thanks to this article the lines extended outside when I drove by this morning!

This is also not about the bland, insipid products. This is about Frank and he is the real deal.
