Holy moly, go to Green’s Sausage House right now.  It’s about 10 miles outside of Temple and it’s the kind Texas destination I love.  Part convenience store, part deer processing plant, part restaurant.  What more could you possibly ask for.  One foot in the door and I was done for.

You walk straight into the convenience store that has all the staples a local could want: potato, milk, Ms. Baird’s white bread.  And every Texas rub, jelly, salsa or relish that the curious traveler would delight in.  But at 9:00 on a Saturday morning the fresh kolache counter seems to be the main draw.  If you venture back past the 12 packs of Pearl Light you see the meat counter with every kind of homemade sausage, bacon and country ham imaginable.  I sink knowing that I am about to spend a pretty penny before I leave here. 

I head into the restaurant and meet the friendliest waitress that tells me that people drive for miles to come sample the wares.  And, after 10 minutes I know that she is right.  It is a constant stream of people heading in the door grabbin kolaches and heading out. 

I order the breakfast burger.  Bun, sausage, fried egg, cheese.  Delicious! 

Run, don’t walk, to Green’s Sausage House.
