better than “everything” herby poppyseed rolls

everything else

We have a weakness for good bread, and we will be honest that we do not make bread very often. But we will make these rolls. Are you an everything bagel lover? Well then these rolls are for YOU! Imagine everything bagel BUT WAY BETTER on the crustiest but fluffy roll, drizzled with olive oil and baked to perfection. We make these for every holiday and also upon request. There is nothing better to soak up sauces, pair with meat or use as a mini sandwich with leftovers. Enjoy!
