While the poppyseed kolaches at Olde Towne Kitchen on Memorial near Kirkwood are a little too sweet for my tastes, I love the meaty bacon and cheese klobasnek. The generous filling requires more dough and makes for a larger-size pastry -- one is big enough for breakfast. Oddly, the skinnier sausage and cheese klobasneks here are terrible.

Weikel's in La Grange makes sausage klobasneks with thin lengths of peppery Czech sausage. Hruska's in Ellington stuffs theirs with your choice of link sausage or spicy pan sausage. Meanwhile in Houston, every sausage klobasnek I've tried has been filled with "Vienna sausage" or whatever you want to call those mushy little hot dogs.

Does anybody know where I can get a sausage klobasnek (better known as a sausage kolache) in Houston that contains a decent piece of sausage?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
