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.



  • 1 cup (240ml milk

  • 1 Tbsp (10g) yeast

  • 3.5 cups (510g) all purpose

  • 1.5 tsp (7g) fine sea salt

  • 1 Tbsp (16g) granulated sugar

  • 2 egg yolks 3tbsp (45ml) water

  • 1.5 Tbsp (15g) vegetable oil

  • 4.5 tbsp (63g) butter



  1. Start by mixing milk and instant yeast and set to the side for 10 minutes.

  2. In a stand mixing bowl, add and whisk together all dry ingredients.

  3. Using the spiral dough hook attachment, whisk on low speed and in the instant yeast mixture, egg yolks, room temperature water, and vegetable oil. Mix on medium-low speed until combined.

  4. Add one tablespoon at a time of softened unsalted butter until all is added and mix for an additional 2-3 minutes.

  5. Loosely roll the dough into a ball and place into a greased bowl covering with a damp towel for 1 hour.

  6. Punch down the dough and dump out onto a lightly floured work surface and divide into even pieces.

  7. Roll each piece out to a ¼” thick. Roll the cooked sausage up in the dough finishing with seam side down.

  8. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and cover with a damp towel to proof for 45 minutes at room temperature.

  9. Brush each kolache with egg wash then top with flaky salt or everything bagel seasoning.

  10. Bake in a 375F oven for 15-18 minutes. Brush with more egg wash and let cool before serving.

Some have asked about how many this recipe produces. I get about 30.

Needs 1/3 cup of sugar not 1 Tbsp, another egg yoke, and 1/2 cup of butter rather than 4.5 Tbsp, and also disregard the water and vegetable oil.

If you have a regular oven, bake at 400° F. I wondered why I wasn't getting the color I was looking for until I rewatched the video.

made them last week and my teenage son & his friend devoured them for breakfast in the car on the way to school each day; this morning made a double batch with the Everything bagel seasoning.

One missing ingredient is sausage. I’m having a hard time finding shorter ones (“that’s what she said”). Can you cut them or will the fat run out that side?
