Kaiser Rolls

Kaiser rolls are a hard, crusty type of roll often used for sandwiches. I like to use them as burger buns too because they are very sturdy and can hold up to lots of toppings. You can’t have too many toppings on a burger in my opinion. If you want to make the classic spiralContinue reading “Kaiser Rolls”
