A soft-textured English large smoked sausage typically made of pork and beef. Polony is usually sold encased in a vividly hued skin of either orange or red. Polony sausage is similar to bologna so its name suggests that “polony” might have been brought from “Bologna,” the Italian city known for this style of sausage. Typically sliced and served cold.
