    PanNan's Note:

    These are mouthwatering. Make plenty for a weekend breakfast. It's worth the effort! They freeze well, too, and can be heated in the oven at 350 for about 12 - 14 minutes, or in the microwave for a few seconds if thawed (about 1 1/2 minutes if frozen). Very convenient for a grab and go breakfast.

      I made these kolaches this morning and they were not difficult to make but I must admit they were not very good. I'm from texas and I know what sausage kolaches should be like. My main problem was the kolache bread, the bread of this recipe was dense and had the consistency of a biscut kolaches should have a soft, light ,delicate, slightly sweet taste of the bread on the interior and the exterior should have a slight crispy, toasty but buttery outside the sausage and cheese and jalapeno speak for themselves bring their own flavor so I give a one star. at first I thought that yeast didnt activate correctly because my dough didn't rise very much but from the remarks posted on this recipe maybe I wasn't wrong. Well I will try this recipe one more time and If I have the same result back to the drawing board.

      I made these according to the exact recipe and I'm sorry to say I was very disappointed. They were OK but not very good. The dough finished dense and a bit tasteless. Sorry I could not give a better review, I won't be making these again.

      I made these this morning and after 2-3 hours of waiting to eat what was supposed to be great....I ended up with sausages wrapped in a dense, flavorless bread, versus a kolache.
