The kolache is one of the newer ways to dress a dog on this list, but it makes a strong case for its staying power. They're traditionally a roadside treat in the long roads that cross Texas and connect its major metropolitan areas, and originates from the state's Czech population. In a 2013 New York Times trend piece, an Austin folklorist referred to them as being "in the love-child phase of their development," but it's 2015 now and hopefully they'll soon get the kind of nationwide appreciation they deserve. Kolaches can be sweet or savory, depending on the occasion — the savory ones usually containing sausage. The best kind of dog to use is obviously the kielbasa surrounded by melted cheddar cheese and jalapeños, all encased in a sweet yeast roll. It's not too difficult to make, but it's truly a shame that restaurants that sell them are so regionally inhibited.
