Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. bread dough (about 2 cups before rising)
  • 1 lb. sauerkraut, drained
  • 2 Tbsp. shortening
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup poppyseed, ground
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 4 Tbsp. water

Directions:

  1. Pinch off portion of dough about size of an egg.
  2. Roll out on floured board by hand to make roll about 1-inch in diameter. Cut in 1-inch pieces.
  3. Place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise about 20 minutes. Bake at 350° about 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Separate if Bobalky have run together during baking.
  4. Place in colander. Pour boiling water over Bobalky; drain quickly to prevent sogginess.
  5. Fry onion in shortening until lightly browned. Add onion and sauerkraut to half of the Bobalky; mix well.
  6. Add popyseed and honey to the other half; mix well.

Gaye writes, ” Bobalky is pronounced ‘Bo-Ball-Kee.’ This is an old family Slovak Christmas tradition. My Grandson, Henry, just loves it! I make the poppyseed and honey for the kids, and the kraut and onions for the adults.”
