When my husband and I moved to Texas, we discovered a delicious treat called kolaches and instantly fell in love. What are kolaches? Picture a sweet yeast type roll stuffed with the filling of your choice…eggs and cheese for breakfast, pepperoni and sauce with mozzarella for lunch, sausage and jalapenos for a little kick! You can also top your homemade kolaches recipe with a fruit filling for a sweet breakfast or dessert treat. This kolache recipe is easy and we made it a family affair. I am all for families cooking together. And helping to clean up the mess!
History of Kolaches
So, what is the history of kolaches? Basically, it is a traditional food that originated in Central Europe, mainly from Czech and Slovak regions. Kolaches came to the United States with Czech immigrants, many of whom settled in Texas. However, there are many cities around the US that are passionate about their kolaches.
Several cities even hold annual Kolache Festival celebrations! Check out this Czechoslovakian cookbook on Amazon. They have a great selection of recipes and some interesting historical info.
Kolache Filling Ideas
So, we have been making homemade kolaches for a while and everyone has their favorite kolache filling. This easy kolache recipe can be filled with sausage, egg, and cheese (my favorite!), pepperoni and cheese (my daughter’s favorite!) or jalapenos and cheese (my husbands favorite!).
Using store bought jam or homemade lemon curd are also great for dolloping on top. Make sure you seal your homemade kolaches well and don’t over stuff them. You will end up with filling all over everywhere. Use a silicone baking mat on your cookie sheet to make cleanup easier.
