The Versatility of Colcom Beef Polony

polony

Full of lean beef this Colcom Beef Polony does not contain any pork which is perfect for those who love the versatility and taste of polony but cannot consume pork.

It can be thinly sliced for sandwiches, or carved into chunks and thick slices for hot meals and other recipes. Pair it with sliced cheese and mustard in a basic sandwich or in a wrap, perhaps complemented by lettuce and tomato.

The beef polony’s sausage form makes it possible to use it in a variety of hot meals, yet it doesn’t require browning before you mix it into your dish. Incorporate polony into meals as you would other sausages or hot dogs. Chopped polony pieces work well in cheesy dinner casseroles or eggy breakfast bakes. Or, add cubed polony to chili and stews during the final stages of cooking; the precooked sausage doesn’t require more than a few minutes of heating.

This is also a classic favourite for school lunch boxes! Easy lunches in a jiffy!
