Sausage for Milwaukee folks!
 
I went to a party at a friends' place the other day and they had picked up a ton of sausages from a place in the old Polish neighborhood. To say this stuff was awesome is an understatement - Polish sausage, Hungarian sausage, and a bunch I can't remember - all spectacular.

Anyway, I found the place and picked up some more. For Milwaukee folks who don't know, (and I'm probably the only person who hadn't heard of this place) it's on Muskego just off of Lincoln. Called European Homemade Sausages, appropriately enough. Anyway, cheers!

Frank is a sausage GOD!! Highly recommend him. We almost lost him a couple years ago when he retired after being robbed and none of his kids wanted to take over the business BUT the people in the neighborhood bugged him so much while he was in retirement he figured he'd get more peace if he just reopened the shop. Best part of the story is he has a apprentice now so we'll be set for a LONG LONG time!

His hours or sort of weird outside of the holidays (IIRC only open Thursday - Saturday) but with his holiday hours it's a must go to place! (Mon - Sat 8-4)

I love the old dark wood, the old cooler, the faded Milwaukee Sentinel article on the wall ... I'll definitely be back.

the best part is when you get out of your car you can smell the place before you even get inside

Yes, sausage recipes are hard to come by. He has my uncle's Slovenian sausage recipe.
If anyone is trying to duplicate this, I'd love to hear your results.

Top notch video about Frank's great work.

Great find and great video. Hopefully that apprenticeship stays on track and the doors open until I get back stateside.

I get to Milwaukee about every 2-3 months. I have actually planned weekend activities around when I would be able to get to Frank's place. It is that good.

I'll definitely make the pilgrimage from Madison. I'm always on the lookout for good Old World sausage, without having to travel to the Polish butchers in Chicago.

When you're there, head up Oklahoma Ave to 54th and grab a few sixers of some good beers, too!
