Bread Baking Babes Bake Birotes

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.

    • Masks are mandatory here as of Monday. Earlier they were hard to get. Most people have been wearing them all along.
      Now I need a picnic

  1. Ah!! That’s what a love to see. An attractive alliteration actively abounding along. (Is this why Karen chose Birotes Salados? Just so you could achieve such brilliance?)

    I’m a little surprised (actually, I’m not really – Google-translate is somewhat literal and hasn’t trained its robots to do a little extra research about the things they are translating) that the translation for Birotes Salados isn’t “Savoury Baguettes” rather than “Salty Rods” – because one of the translations for “Salados” in Google translate from Spanish to Englsih is “savory” and one of the translations for “baguette” in Google translate from French to English is “rods”.

    • I use Google translate for French a lot – then spend a lot of time correcting it lol.
      Alliteration is so underappreciated. But the breads look very appreciated.

  2. Thanks for the roundup. Salty Rods indeed! I think not! But I do like the idea of a picnic – virtual or not! It gives me an excuse to make some more of these rolls.

    • They look like they would be good for the French pressed sandwich – made overnight with lots of marinated veggies, then pressed, and sliced to serve.
      Now I really want a picnic

  3. Lol, it seems as if we were assiduously avoiding the use of that particular beer. Quite a wide range of looks in our roundup, very nice!
