A traditional sausage klobásník with cheese added

|Region or state
A klobasnek (Czech klobásník plural klobásníky, meaning "a roll made of Sweet, spun dough known as Koláč made and often filled with Klobása or other fillings") is a chiefly American Czech savory finger food. Klobasneks are similar in style to sausage rolls, but the meat is wrapped in kolache dough. Unlike kolaches, which came to the United States with Moravian immigrants, klobasneks were first made by Bohemians who settled in Texas.
The regional pastry is served as an Easter treat in the South of Moravian Silesia region and is filled with klobása or a chopped prepared meat.
Traditionally klobasneks are filled with sausage, but as their popularity has increased in the United States, other ingredients such as ham, eggs, cheese and peppers are used alongside or instead of sausage. A klobasnek is often thought to be a variation of the kolach; however, Czech koláč only references the Spun, sweet dough, not fillings like .
