A chewy German roll that has a firm outer crust. These rolls are made with only the whites of the eggs and are great with soups, stews or just eaten as a snack.
Something else. I´ve been living in germany for 21 years now, and this recipe is very good. But to make them more authentic, lightly slice the rolls lengethwise and then add the egg wash. - 08 Oct 2008
these were soooooo good! My family loved them. It was not easy, but then again, it was my first time making bread. Thanks for such a yummy recipe! - 08 Oct 2008
After living in Germany for 5 years and searching for a brotchen recipe, I am happy with this one as being authentic. - 08 Oct 2008
