    Oh my, how I love kolaches.

    Dr. Evans (symphony director) had a poppy seed kolache today and broke me off a few pieces.
    YUM.
    Before I went veggie, I used to love sausage and cheese kolaches from Shipley's. (now the thought of sausage.. eww.:p)

    So, how do y'all feel about kolaches?
    Is a sweet kolache a stain on the face of kolache-kind, or are you OK with fruit filling?
    Are they just breakfast foods or day-round deliciousness?

    Discuss. I wish to know others' views on kolaches.

    Man.. thinking about kolaches this much is really making me hungry. I wish I had some right now.

    kolache factory

    basically rolls filled with stuff like fruit, spinach, meats, cheese, etc.

    They're delicious.. I thought they were a pretty universal thing.*shrug*

    My mom makes a similar type of thing - a runza, which is of German origin, I believe. Bread stuffed with meat/cheese/cabbage/etc.

    Crap, now I'm hungry for one. Thanks, katie :mad:

    :D

    I was born in the Czech community of West, TX. The town is fairly well known for the many Kolache bakeries, and there is a place off the highway called Czech stop that is know for its Kolaches. I personally will eat mine any way, my personal favorite is the Spicy Sausage and Cheese, but I also love Creme Cheese kolaches and different fruit kolaches. They are more than just breakfast, they are good any time of the day, nice and warm.

    I LOVE poppy seed kolache! (major comfort food, and guilty pleasure)
    My kolache top two favorites are poppy seed and Apricot :D
    GOOD EATS!

    I cant wait till I can get back to Chicago and pig out on all the great ethinic food there. I got so homesick (for the food) a few years ago, I bought The Ethinic Chicago Cookbook. :)

    Out in CA, I'm getting really into Persian food and flavors.

    Wow I didn't know they existed like this. I've always known kolaches as the special sweet bread we bake/eat at Christmas - it's part of the traditional Ukrainian christmas eve dinner. The one we make though has no fillings or anything, it's just like sweet bread. The shape is also different - kind of like a big circular loaf, and we make dough braids for decoration on top. I'm trying to find a picture of one, I'll post it when I do. It tastes awesome fresh, just with a bit of butter on it.....*drools*. It also makes great toast a few days later. While I love kolach, I think my favourite is still the poppy seed roll my grandmother makes - I could eat an entire one. mmmmm

    I love your grandmother, just for the fact that she makes poppy seed rolls.
    Give her a big hug for me!

    I'm sure she'd like that! ;)
    But I must say the best thing is, is that she taught me how to make them, so I will be able to eat them forever! :) Though I have to admit that there's something about hers that make them taste that little bit better.

    Hey, my own thread :)

    maestro55, my grandmother grew up in West. She never made any kolaches, though. I hear that my great-grandmother and her sister both made excellent ones.

    My family usually makes these around Christmas time. (The open-faced type in kolache's photo.) I've only ever had them with fruit filling, KT -- but you've given me a desire to experiment!

    Out here in the western U.S., people usually refer to them as "thumbprint cookies". (What a stupid name. ;) )

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought it was going to be about you (as I've never heard of Kolaches before :eek: )

    I do eat stuffed breads though, usually Italian style.

    when I went to kolache factory yesterday, I noticed that on the bag.

    I pointed it out to my nephew (he's 3) and he could recognize the words enough that he told me "think different"

    Yeah.. I've had him watch old advertising campaigns... He likes them!!

    Man, I want another kolache. I guess I get to bake my own today.
    (I don't feel like putting in my contacts or combing my hair. I'm not leaving the house.)
