Sausage Kolaches

A gift from living in Texas that just keeps on giving.
Prep Time 1 hr 30 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 1 hr 55 mins
Servings 12 Kolaches


  • 2 packages smoked all beef sausage links 6 each
  • 1 cup +/- water
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast


  • Open the sausage packages, drain of excess liquid and allow to come to room temperature.
  • Place all of the other ingredients in the bread pan.
  • Select the dough setting and press start.
  • When the dough cycle is done and the dough is more than double in size, tip out onto a floured surface.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Shape the dough into a log about a foot or so in length and cut into 6 equal-sized sections.
  • Cut each section in half and spread with a rolling pin so that it is large enough to fully wrap a sausage link, folding the ends into the middle to fully engulf the link.
  • Place the dough-wrapped links on a pizza pan without touching.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove and top with melted butter (optional)
  • Allow to cool for about 10 minutes, then serve.
