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
Definetly took a while, but it was worth it. Had lots of my German friends come over and everyone loved it and said it tasted just like German Brotchen. Made 33, had 10 guests, and all the rolls were gone at the end of the evening. Just make sure you put the eggwash on just a second before putting them into the oven. Any earlier and they won't turn out very shiny. - 08 Oct 2008
