THE STORY BEHIND
Laugen bun or lye roll is a traditional German, Austian and Swiss bakery specialty. The taste is typical for the Laugengeback family known as the pretzel. The bun has been immersed in a high pH solution - LYE - before baking. The maillard reaction during baking gives this bun its typical dark brown colour and distinctive flavour.
TIPS & TRICKS
- Toast or grill cut side for more taste, texture and protection against crumb humidity.
- Its distinctive taste lends itself wonderfully to making juicy hamburgers with for example: wild boar.
