Pigs in a Blanket

This is the only pigs in a blanket style recipe that you will ever need. One of the best kept secrets in Texas is the Czech influenced and humble kolache properly addressed as Klobásník. It’s essentially a sausage that has been wrapped in an incredibly soft and buttery kolach dough (slighly similar to a pain au lait). An undefeated combo.
