Cheater Almost Kolaches

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

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


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  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. 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. 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. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Brush the tops with melted butter and serve warm.
  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!
