One of America’s Favorites – Maxwell Street Polish

July 9, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Pork chops and Polish sausages, with the accompanying onions, on the grill.

A Maxwell Street Polish consists of a grilled or fried length of Polish sausage topped with grilled onions and yellow mustard and optional pickled whole, green sport peppers, served on a bun. The sandwich traces its origins to Chicago’s Maxwell Street market, and has been called one of “the classic foods synonymous with Chicago”.

 

 

 

The sandwich is widely said to have been created by Jimmy Stefanovic, a Macedonian immigrant, who took over His aunt and uncle’s hot dog stand in 1939 (now called Jim’s Original) located at Maxwell and Halsted in Chicago’s old Maxwell Street market district. The Express Grill, which is located right next door to Jim’s, advertises itself as the “Original Maxwell St. Polish” on its marquee, although it arrived after Jim’s and serves almost an identical menu. Due to their virtually undivided storefronts and 24-hour service at the original Halsted Street location of both stands, Jim’s Original and Express Grill had an added element of confusion for the casual observer not attentive to the change in signage a matter of feet in distance. Despite the competition, the Maxwell Polish sausage sandwich soon grew to be one of Chicago’s most popular local offerings, along with the Chicago-style hot dog and the Italian beef sandwich.

Jim’s Original at its current location on Union Avenue

Due to the University of Illinois Chicago’s South Campus development the Maxwell Street market district was razed and the two stands moved in 2005. After decades of coexisting at the intersection of Halsted and Maxwell Streets, the two have relocated their side-by-side competition a half block east onto Union Avenue, adjacent to the Dan Ryan Expressway on-ramp at Roosevelt Road.

Maxwell Polish are a staple of hot dog stands and today are found throughout the city and suburbs, including at restaurant chains such as Portillo’s and Brown’s Chicken, and is available at most sports venues in the area serving concessions. Most of the 24-hour stands (such as the original Express Grill and its neighboring competition, Jim’s Original) also serve the pork chop sandwich popularized alongside the Polish sausage sandwich during the days of the old Maxwell Street market.

 

Maxwell Street Polish Hot Dog Stand

The main feature of the sandwich is the sausage, which is widely available in grocery and specialty retail stores throughout the Chicago area. It is typically marketed as the “Maxwell Street” variety, which is a Chicago-specific variation of kielbasa distinguished by it being typically more seasoned and made from a combination of both beef and pork. The two largest manufacturers of this particular style of Polish sausage in Chicago are Vienna Beef and the Bobak’s Sausage Company

Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I lightly fried a couple of al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patties – With a hint of Sage and Thyme. I love these, they’re fully cooked so they fry up in 6 to 8 minutes per side. One of the best Breakfast Patties I’ve found. Great seasoning and the perfect size for my Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffins. So I made me and Mom a couple of Breakfast Sandwiches. I also added a 1/2 a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar to the Sandwich. So Mom had a couple of errands to run and I had to do a few things around the house. I had the wooden deck repaired a while back and my neighbor came over did some touch up painting for me this afternoon. It’s another hot and humid day out again, 99 degrees. Later on I went through my closet and dresser gathering up some clothes that were too small or I just didn’t wear anymore. I then took them to the local Goodwill Store. I also gave them Dad’s old clothes and some things that my Mom had gathered up also. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.
