Birotes Salados, to be specific. Google tells me that translates as ‘salty rods’.
The Babes tell me that it’s a Mexican sourdough roll.
I thought about it…. and decided not to make one of the many comments passing through my mind about travel restrictions and walls and borders and such. I have a rather dark sense of humor but the situation at the moment is even too dire for that.
I’ll just appreciate the fact that the Babes were able to travel to Mexico, vicariously, of course, to find this fantastic bread. It really is just crying to be wrapped around something delicious for a portable picnic….. With maybe an icy, cold Corona to go with it?
Karen, of Karen’s Kitchen Stories our host kitchen for this month, says this: “Birotes Salados are sourdough sandwich rolls unique to Guadalaja, Mexico. The rolls are crusty on the outside and soft and airy on the inside. They have a wonderful sourdough flavor.”
This really does look and sound like the perfect picnic roll. With summer’s heat rolling in (ahem) it’s something to think about.
