I love to cook, and many of my family loves cooking too, but we all have our own little Twists on recipes and that's what I'm here to share with you, My Twists on some great recipes that make them even more tasty.
Some are new some are old favorites but I put time and love into everything I make and write about.
Dough 2 to 2.5 cups all purpose flour 1/2 cup warm milk 1 tsp instant yeast 2 Tbsp sugar 1 extra large egg, lightly beaten 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp salt
Filling 1 "Healthy Ones" fully cooked skinless Polska Kielbasa sausage (or similar) Deli sliced Colby Jack or your favorite sliced or shredded cheese Sliced jalapenos (optional - seeded or otherwise, to taste)
Instructions In a mixer fitted with the paddle combine yeast, milk, sugar, flour, egg, oil and salt. Once the dough starts to come together knead by hand for 10 minutes. Cover and leave to rise until doubled - about an hour.
Punch it down and break into 8-10 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
Slice the sausage lengthwise and cut each half into 8-10 pieces.
Flatten each ball of dough into a roughly oval shape. Put 2 pieces of sausage, some cheese and jalapenos into the oval, fold it over and seal. Tuck the two ends underneath and seal also. Place the Kolache seam side down on a crumpled foil lined cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375F. Brush the Kolaches with olive oil or milk before putting them into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve warm.
