I though she was joking, she was dead serious. She really never herd of a Kolache.
I have lived In Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami and was born and raised in New York, and never heard of Kolaches until I landed in Houston. LOL. I was like, "WTF is a Kolache?"

Back to the subject...

You know you're a real Houstonian when you argue on how to pronounce the street "San Felipe".

Kolache - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Houston style Kolache is a variation of Czech kolache that uses the same breading and is filled with a sausage. In reality they would be considered a sausage roll from the UK, but since in Houston Kolache pastries are so prevalent a variation has become popular using the same kolache pastry dough to wrap around a sausage. Now I don't mean to credit the idea to the Houston area because the first time I ever had this type of kolache was at a Czech bakery just south of Austin. There is a heavy concentration of Czechs in that area.

Klobasnek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If I were from the UK, where pigs-in-a-blanket began, I would refer to the US version as hot dogs since that is the meat that is used. "In the United Kingdom, "pigs in blankets" refers to small sausages (usually cocktail sausages) wrapped in bacon, and are a traditional accompaniment to roast turkey for Christmas lunch. (The Cocktail Sausages referred to are not like the ones you get in the United States which are like miniature hotdogs, but more like miniature sausages with the sausage meat much more finely ground than you would typically find in the US)"

Pigs in a blanket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So, why don't you call pigs-in-a-blanket a hot dog or corn dog?

A real kolache is anything breaded as a kolache and named as it is filled - hence, "sausage and cheese kolache."

If I saw the semi-flat bread with a jelly circle on top in the middle, I'd call it a Danish. Just about all the "kolaches" I've had in Houston, Dallas, SA, Beaumont was *usually* some kind of meat, cheese, eggs, etc wrapped with the bread. So I wouldn't necessarily call it a Houston thing. One variation that was commonplace in the Beaumont area was a boudain kolache... talk about hybrid-fusion. Great stuff BTW.

IMO the bread makes the kolache. It has to have that combination of softness and yeasty goodness.

Those boudain kolaches are pretty tasty. I tried some at the Donald's Doughnuts in Dickinson on 517. I haven't been to the Donald's on El Dorado between 45 and hwy 3 in a while but I'm sure you could find some there too if you get a craving.

I've had boudain balls, but never boudain kolache. It sounds good though. BTW, I never ment for this thread to turn into a debate about kolaches. LOL.
