A klobasnek (Czech klobásník /ˌklˈbæsnɪk/, plural klobásníky) is a chiefly American Czech savory finger food.[1] Klobasneks are similar in style to pigs in a blanket or sausage rolls, but the meat is wrapped in kolache dough.[2][3] Unlike kolaches, which came to the United States with Czech immigrants, klobasneks were first made by Czechs who settled in Texas.[4]

The form "klobasnek" is an English rendition of the Czech word klobásník (dialectal, "sausage roll"). The Czech pastry is served as an Easter treat in the South of Moravian Silesia region and is filled with klobása or a chopped meat patty.[citation needed]

Traditionally klobasneks are filled only 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 kolaches have toppings, not fillings like Buchteln.
