For the Dough

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup whole milk warmed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups flour divided, plus more for kneading
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 tbsp unsalted butter 1½ sticks, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the Filling

  • 8 Slices American Cheese
  • 8.3 oz package of Smok-Y breakfast sausages heat and serve “Eckrich” or hot dogs


  • In a large bowl, combine yeast, warm milk, sugar and 1 cup of flour
  • Cover and let it rise until doubled in size.
  • Melt the butter.
  • Beat the eggs, salt, and half of the melted butter
  • Add egg mixture to yeast mixture and blend.
  • Stir in about two more cups of flour, 1/2 cup at a time. The dough should be soft and moist, but not sticky. Add more flour as needed.
  • On a floured surface, knead the dough until dough is smooth and highly malleable, about 10 minutes.
  • Put dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • After dough has risen, punch it down and pull off egg size pieces.
  • In your hands, roll pieces into balls and then flatten to about 3-4 inches in diameter.
  • Place sausage (or hot dogs) and cheese in the center of each piece, then fold one side over and roll until sausage is enclosed, pinching to seal.
  • Place the klobasneks on a greased baking sheet, cover and let rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter and bake until lightly browned, about 15-18 minutes.
  • Brush with the remaining melted butter one more time when they come out of the oven Serve warm.
