Today on the Bite Tonight: Iheart Kolache Coffee-Bakery
Last week, my mom and I traveled to Texas to visit Jay. One of our first stops on my culinary journey was to experience a kolache. Kolaches first originated in the 1700’s in Czechoslovakia and were brought to Texas by immigrants who settled there. These delicious little pastries come in savory choices such as Philly Cheese steak or BBQ Beef, but also can be enjoyed with fruit fillings including blueberry, cheery, and apricot. Kolaches are also popular in Oklahoma and Montgomery, Minnesota, where they are rumored to be the kolache capital of the world. See how they ranked.

Kolache assortment (6 for around $12): Chicken enchilada, Ranchero, Sausage, Sausage croissant, sausage, egg, and cheese, (breakfast), and Bacon, egg, and cheese.
Chicken Enchilada: Chicken breast, tomato sauce, cheese, and sour cream. I’ll start with the best part, the pastry! Warm, soft, with a slight chew and sweetness. The perfect dough to hug the delicious filling. Not to spicy, with tender chicken, and a perfect balance of cheese and tomato sauce.
Sausage, egg, and cheese: Move over mcmuffin! All I can say is that this is perfect for breakfast on the go. All the great breakfast ingredients you want baked into a soft roll.
The service was good in the nice, clean bakery. I love that you can get different types of kolaches. You can get a meal in one or simply a croissant wrapped around a European sausage (even better than the breakfast). The combination of the soft, warm, buttery roll and the filling is out of this world. If you get the chance to try one, do it and then order more to go!
