Prasek's Hillje Kielbasa Sandwich

Split and toast a hoagie roll, apply German mustard liberally to both sides. Place one grilled Prasek's Hillje Smokehouse beef and pork kielbasa in the middle. Top with sauerkraut and devour with a schooner of Shiner beer. That's the recipe for this classic Texas sausage sandwich.

I ate this one at Prasek's Hillje location. Prasek's Smokehouse is descended from a long line of grocery stores in the little Czech town of Hillje that goes back to the late 1800s. The gas station and superstore is on the southbound side of Highway 59 past El Campo.

If you think Bucky's is impressive, check out Prasek's enormous superstore and the amazing variety of jerky, sausage, smoked meat, fresh-baked kolaches, cold beer, and hand-scooped Blue Bell ice cream on sale. This is another sterling Texas charcuterie that sells gas.
