Slovak Tradition Bobalki (also spelled bobalky, babalki, babalky) are Slovak baked balls of dough. They can be served sweet with ground poppy seeds and honey, or savory with sauerkraut and onion. They are a favorite for Slovak Christmas Eve – Velija
Our family has a similar one Slovak Rolls, Kolach Rolls. These come from my Slovak Grandmother and were enjoyed at Christmas and other times of the year. Rich yeast dough rolled with fillings of walnut or popy seeds.
