    Okay, so you're not anywhere near the Texas Hillcountry, but you are craving kolaches. Or you ARE in the Texas Hillcountry but you don't really feel like making a real yeast dough and you're craving kolaches. What do you do? Cheat.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 -12 biscuits, raw (either from a can or a recipe)
    • 2 slices American cheese
    • 16 cocktail franks
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      Either mix up a batch of your favorite biscuit dough and cut into 16 pieces or open a can of biscuits (the flaky kind is my favorite) and separate each biscuit into half (this should give you 16 biscuit halves).
    3. 3
      Take the 2 slices of cheese, cut each into 4 strips, and then cut those in half the other direction, giving you 16 short strips.
    4. 4
      Place 1 strip of cheese and 1 sausage onto each biscuit piece and wrap dough around them. Place seam side down on an ungreased cookie sheet.
    5. 5
      Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Brush the tops with melted butter and serve warm.
    6. 6
      You can of course, substitute any of your favorite kolache fillings.

      quick easy and much more economical for a family of boys that act like they have hollow legs.

      I have always called these pigs in a blanket. My grandson was here last week & we made these together. He was very good at rolling them up and ate three for breakfast! We used flakey Grands biscuits and more cheese. Thank you for a recipe that was easy & fun to do in the kitchen for grandma time! Made for ZWT4.

      These are simply great! Reminds me of the sausage rolls I make. Good thing I doubled this recipe as DH ate a lot of this. Recommended for snacks, to go and I'll bringing some with me when I go out tomorrow. Thank you!
