What are Kolaches?
Kolaches are a Czech pastry traditionally made with yeast dough and filled with fruit or cheese. In Texas and Louisiana, they’ve adapted the kolache and fill them with just about anything.
I remember the first time I had a kolache in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was during my first visit to see my boyfriend and we grabbed them for breakfast. I ordered a simple combination of eggs, bacon, and cheese, and it was delicious. Like take a bite and stare at it for a second delicious. IYKYK!
The other day we had some friends staying with us and I had some leftover pizza dough. So what does one do when they have leftover pizza dough? They make homemade kolaches, duh.
Whenever I have guests over, I always take the opportunity to try out new recipe ideas. When I see their faces light up with the first bite, I know it’s a hit!
What you’ll need-
Pizza dough- you can use pizza dough or premade biscuit dough.
Eggs- scrambled and lightly seasoned.
Sausage- I used ground turkey sausage. Feel free to use whatever protein you’d like.
Cheese- I used mixed shredded cheese.
Egg wash- brush this on top of the kolaches before baking.
Seasoning- feel free to season you eggs however you like. I topped each kolache with everything but the bagel seasoning and cajun seasoning for a little razzle dazzle.
Can I make them ahead of time?
You sure can. If you want to get a head start, prep them the night before, place them in a baking dish and cover and keep them in the refrigerator over night. The morning of, brush them with egg wash, and top with everything but the bagel seasoning and cajun seasoning them pop them in the oven and bake until golden.
What I love most about kolaches is the endless possibilities for fillings. You can stuff these pastry bombs with just about anything you’d like.
Although these are delicious as is, feel free to customize them to your liking/dietary restrictions.
- add veggies. onions, mushrooms, peppers.
- make it meatless. leave out the meat and just do egg and cheese.
- add hash browns.
- switch the sausage for bacon, chorizo etc.
