There's nothing better than a freshly baked kaiser bun direct from a local bakery like Klosterman Baking Company. You can eat the bun warm with some butter to warm you up with a bowl of soup in the winter, or just eat the bun if you aren't a fan of soup. These buns are delicious all by themselves or used with your favorite recipe to create a breakfast, lunch or meal that your entire family will enjoy. See below for some recipes to use with your kaiser buns.
Pulled Pork Or Chicken Sandwiches
Pulled pork is fairly simple to make, especially if you have a crock pot. Place a small pork loin or two large chicken breasts into the crock pot, along with your favorite barbecue sauce, a pinch of pepper and salt, then cook it on high for 5 hours, stirring occasionally. Pull apart the pork or chicken using two forks, blending it further with the sauce. Allow it to cook for about another hour. Serve on kaiser buns along with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. To complete the meal, you can serve it with macaroni and cheese, potato chips, baked fries, coleslaw or a side salad.
Bacon Chicken Burger
Cook a thinly sliced chicken breast on the stove top on medium heat using a grill pan. In another pan on the stove top cook your bacon - enough slices for your burgers. When your meat is cooked thoroughly, place the chicken breast slice on one kaiser bun, topped with a piece of bacon and a slice of your favorite cheese. Top it with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and any condiments you prefer on your burger. Serve with sides such as potato or macaroni salad, sweet potato and corn on the cob for a great summer meal.
Turn your kaiser bun into a breakfast meal (or breakfast for dinner meal). Cut a small hole in the top of the kaiser bun, then dig out just a little bit of the inside to allow room for your egg. Break an egg inside the bun, then cook it in the oven at 350 degrees until the egg is cooked thoroughly. Season it with your favorite seasoning, and add bacon or sausage to eat on the side. Eat your egg and the bowl too.
You just ate an egg out of the roll, why not soup too? Cut your kaiser roll just as you did in the recipe above, clearing out room for your soup. Warm up your roll in the oven and cook your favorite soup on the stove top (or in a crock pot). Pour the soup into the roll and enjoy. Be sure to serve it in a bowl, just in case you have a breech.
Kaiser rolls are versatile rolls that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Look for fresh baked rolls at your local bakery.
