Texas Sausage-Cheddar Kolaches

Kolaches on the brain here lately, I get this way when I can't find Texas food. There was this little bakery just off the Judson Road exit in northeast San Antonio that made the best sausage-jalapeno-cheese Kolaches. Our grandson Jackson would spend Friday night and on the trip home Saturday mornings... somewhere around Garden Ridge on I-35, he'd remember the cream filled donuts at this little place and beg for one. It didn't take much coaxing because we knew we could order Kolaches!
If you have the time to make the dough, it's definitely worth it. But if you have a craving AND you have Rhodes frozen dinner rolls in the freezer, you can easily make these if you plan ahead the night before! We had them for breakfast this morning and I feel better now. The world is round and life is good...

Texas Sausage Cheddar Kolaches
Rhodes dinner roll dough, thawed
hardwood smoked jalapeno sausage, cut in 2" chunks
Vermont cheddar cheese, sliced/chunk
Thaw rolls in fridge overnight. The next morning flatten the roll into a 4-5" circle and add a 2" chunk of smoked sausage and a slice of cheese, fold dough up around the deliciousness and pinch closed. Place seam side down on greased baking sheet and allow to rise for about 1/2 hour in warm place (I turn oven on, then off and set them inside with door open) all the while Jerry was like "How much longer???"  Bake 375 for 15 minutes. Brush with melted butter when they come out of the oven. Serve with spicy mustard.


  1. Oh my goodness, these sound lethally yummy!

  2. Those look soooooooo good! And your header is beautiful!

  3. Kolaches sound delicious and is a pretty simple recipe I must try.
    Wish I could try yours.

  4. Yum! YUM!!! Did you ever go to Castroville? It's near San Antonio. They have some of the best Alsatian food there!

  5. Used to get them in Fredriksburg. Did you know there is a Czech community closer to you? It is in Yukon, OK and they have a Czech festival every year.

  6. These sound really good! Next time I do my refrigerator dough I think I will try some of these with my sausage.

  7. Sweet Joy! Thank you again for wishing me a happy birthday on both FB and blogger! And I hope you were not near that recent incident in Texas? May you enjoy your spring with lots of BLUEBELLS! Love to you, Anita

  8. Those look so good! I will have to try them :)
