|Challah rolls at The Breadery|
I stopped at the Oella bakery on Saturday and found challah rolls in the elongated shape perfect for hot dogs or sausages.
Harris Teeter chicken sausages cooked through, sliced in half, then served up on a toasted Breadery roll. The bread is delicious -- the light flavor of challah with a shiny egg wash and the soft texture that really shines in a hot dog roll.
I am known to empress baguettes when my only other option is a supermarket hot dog roll. They can be dry and tasteless. But it's true that baguettes can overwhelm a sausage with too much bread and a crust that's too crisp for the purpose.
The Breadery's rolls were ideal in size and flavor. They come in eight-packs, so freeze whatever you don't use.
Now I need some great sausages or hot dogs. Both Laurel Meat Market and Boarman's in Highland make their own sausages. Wegmans sells a hot dog in the deli section that was peppery and unique. Any other suggestions?
