Expert Tips

You can fill them with bacon and cheese, cream cheese and fruits or huevos rancheros.

In Texas, if you leave your house in a hurry and need a quick but delicious breakfast, the stop will always be for kolaches. European immigrants brought these stuffed breads with delicious toppings to Texas. Here they’ve adopted a delicious touch of Tex-Mex, the most popular option being the breakfast sausage with cheddar cheese and jalapeño. Make them at home and eat them warm.

Directions

  • 1 Place the warm water in a large bowl, sprinkle the yeast and let sit for 5 minutes. You’ll see bubbles begin to form, a signal that the yeast is alive.
  • 2 Add the warm milk, butter, eggs and salt, and mix with a fork. Add 2 cups of flour and mix.
  • 3 Now use a wooden spoon or your hands to knead, add 2-1/2 cups of flour and knead until achieving soft and sticky dough, then 1/2 cup more of flour if necessary.
  • 4 Cover and let sit for 1-2 hours in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.
  • 5 Flatten with your knuckles and refrigerate the dough for 4 hours or all night.
  • 6 Divide the dough in 2.5-ounce portions or 20 equal-sized portions. Place on a floured baking dish. Cover and allow to expand for 15 minutes.
  • 7 One by one flatten each ball and place half a breakfast sausage in the middle of each with cheddar and a slice of jalapeño. Close the middle first and then the borders and place on a baking dish covered in parchment paper with the seam facing down.
  • 8 Repeat with 10 kolaches. Shape the other 10 and fill with jam.
  • 9 Let sit for 20 minutes.
  • 10 Preheat the over to 375°F.
  • 11 Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 12 Serve warm.
