A simple google search has revealed to me that the term Polish Popsicle is likely uniquely a family title. I found this recipe online listed under Green Onion Wraps, Cream Cheese Pickles, and simply stated as Onion Wraps.
Every year my family has a reunion, The Family Gathering, as it is known to us. Each year 60-100 or so people would ascend on my grandparent’s house, and now on my father’s, to eat potluck, play whiffle ball, sip adult beverages, and eventually sit around a bon fire or watch fireworks. The memories of this day will be forever vivid in my mind. It is a great and oddly unique family tradition. While many families talk about having a reunion, or have one once in a while, my family has unfailingly held their gathering every summer for as long as I have been alive.
Over the years I have observed that the same people bring the same dishes every year. Aunt Mary makes taco salad, Aunt Barb makes potato salad and Polish popsicles, my family makes ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, and a mess of other items (it is the host house after all), cousin Cindy makes jello (for adults and the kiddies), and the list goes on. But the Polish popsicles have a very soft spot in my heart. Once made only with green onions, there are now more pickle ones than onion ones! The pickles just won out.
So simple, so delicious, and so full of nostalgia. Sometimes you just don’t get scratch from this girl.
