Kiolbassa – Made in San Antonio for Everyone Who Loves Smoked Meat



Kiolbassa “Links of Love” Program Helps Enrich Lives by Feeding People in Need



Kiolbassa Smoked Meats are as big and bold as the State of Texas, where it is made!


I love everything Kiolbassa makes, from the breakfast links and bacon to the Smoked Sausage. The Roasted Garlic Sausage is my favorite and I use them in recipes every couple of weeks, summer or winter. They make dinner an easy way to feed the family, no matter what is going on in my life! And I love that I am supporting local since they are a San Antonio based company!


Kiolbassa’s purpose is to enrich lives, so they created a special program (Links of Love) aimed at feeding people in need. By creating a special all-pork dinner sausage that is fully cooked, easy to prepare and most importantly delicious, they have made a protein product to help nourish those experiencing food insecurity, disaster or both.




Giving back to the community has been in Kiolbassa Smoked Meats DNA since 1949. During the pandemic, the company redefined their community enrichment initiatives by creating the Links of Love program. This program uses an exclusively made fully-cooked, all-pork product using the highest quality ingredients geared toward food insecurity endeavors through food banks and disaster relief efforts. Through this program, Kiolbassa hopes to enrich lives by raising awareness of the impact of food insecurity nationwide.

During the pandemic, food insecurity suddenly affected individuals from all walks of life that have never experienced it before, and the need for food assistance continues to grow. On average, 1 in 8 people experience food insecurity, and 1 in 5 of those are children, which equals approximately 42 million Americans.

Kiolbassa Smoked Meats is committed to donating 10,000 lbs of sausage a month to help fight hunger and to support those in need during natural disasters.

Below are healthy, easy-to-make recipes:

4 people
11.4 ounces Kiolbassa Smoked Meats organic beef smoked sausage, cut into rounds (1 package)
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
20 ounces riced cauliflower, softened according to package instructions
1.5 tablespoons kosher salt, divided
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, divided
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, divided
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
2 whole jalapeños, diced
10 ounces cherry tomatoes
6 ounces portobello mushrooms. sliced
5 ounces fresh spinach
4 large eggs
Garnish: green onions, microgreens



Preheat the oven to 400°F. To a parchment-lined baking sheet, add riced cauliflower and sweet potato cubes. Coat with olive oil, and season generously, reserving remaining seasonings and salt for the rest of the cooking process. Roast until lightly golden brown, or until the cauliflower rice is no longer soggy, but rather light and fluffy. This will take about 40-45 minutes. Toss halfway through to ensure even cooking.


Meanwhile, while the veggies are roasting, heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of butter, and add sausages to the skillet, cooking about one minute per side to sear. Remove and set aside.


Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet and add onion, green bell peppers, jalapeños, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms. Season with the remaining seasoning blend, plus a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until softened about 7-10 minutes. Remove vegetables from the skillet and set them aside.
Add the spinach to the cast iron skillet with a pinch of salt, and wilt. Move around continuously and remove from the skillet once wilted.


Lastly, using the remaining butter, fry the eggs in the skillet.


Now it’s time to assemble the bowls. Layer on cauliflower rice and sweet potatoes. Add in cooked veggies, smoked sausage, wilted spinach, and top with a fried egg. Garnish with microgreens and green onions. Dig in, and enjoy!


Store in air-tight containers in the fridge for up to 5 days.


Kiolbassa also makes Breakfast Links and Dry Cured Bacon which are both fantastic!
