Frankfurter and chilli.

04:04:55 11.04.2008 annemarie

In my rohlik I like bacon & tomato.

in reply to the original question just about anything edible.... (i do want to add that is do sometimes put stuff on the outside if i am in a hurry) it might be worthwile to mention some of the other uses for rohliky: 1) sliced for jednohubky (with a wide variety of topping, including, but not limited to: garlic cheese spread, chanterelle cheese spread, smoked sardine spread) 2) cubed and dried for subsequent use in bread dumplings or stuffing 3) dried and grated for bread crumbs 4) plain with tripe soup 5) cubed and toasted for use as topping in soups (including, but not limited to, lentil soup and split pea soup) 6) soaked in milk for certain types of stuffings and side dishes 7) with sausages and mustard hmmmmmmm all that i can think of at the moment

Little flea joint, round the corner from the TV tower. They had 'haggis' on their menu. I asked the manager if it was proper haggis, he said, "Of course, I've been to Scotland and tasted it myself!". What did I get? Some chunks of black and white sh1t, in cold jelly :mad: Needless to say, I told him he was a tool, and didn't pay. Also, the skewers in these so called Olde Worlde restaurants. Just like a donkeys dick, swinging fom a hook :D

I try not to eat that stretchy bread. Feels like you are eating a neoprene wet suit. I find it revolting to watch Czechs open a can of meat paste substance and dip these stretchy rolls into it and eat it. I feed my dog better then that.

i feel so sorry for you praguers if all you have are those mass-produced rubbery rohliky (although i do use them for the purposes defined in 2 3 5 and 6 of my previous post) - i am thinking of the fresh-baked rohliky with the crunchy crust and airy inside that, if i time it right, i can purchase still warm... they do keep well in the freezer though if frozen immediately and then just left to thaw for a few hours

09:58:40 11.04.2008 meluzina

I buy rohlik, then freeze it and when I need it, I put it in the oven for a few minutes. It tastes totally fresh.

No, she said she leaves it to thaw. Then it goes all soft and rubbery.

Bez rohlíků since 2004 and loving it. Life is too short for bad rolls.

11:40:34 11.04.2008 Hollins98

At my local Viet Cong store they have fresh cheese bread in the mornings. That make awesome toasted BLT bread. However you got to fight the other customers to get a few. They sell fast as hell, if you are not in there by 9am forget about it.

I also like those cream cheese dips the czechers love, with the garlic or onion flavours. Today I'm gonna do a recon trip up to poland and see what those bastards eat on their rolls

I am with you on that. The cheese spreads are awesome with smoked salmon on toasted bread.

I don't eat rohliky. As a true patriot I eat Borodino bread.

13:25:08 11.04.2008 Mikhail Lermontov

If you guys don't eat rohliky what do you eat? Some two years ago when Albert started baking the frozen different kinds of small breads it was OK now it's not. Bio shops' bread used to be good not a long time ago now it tastes like baked sawdust with a very small exception but then it costs 15 crowns for each small piece. The only edible bread is sadly fresh rohliky and Sumava, to my mind. Or should I buy the bread machine?

Borodino. The best bread in Russia and Prague.

Anything but rohliky and housky! They taste like cotton. I usually buy a loaf of the farmarsky chleb (looks rustic), ciabatta, or the crazy-bio sunflower bread that's basically pressed seeds. :) And I don't think the Sumava bread has much going for it, either--but I guess I would feel differently if we had a family to feed. I've only got a husband to feed. If he wants rohliky/housky, we go to his parents'. :D

19:59:11 11.04.2008 Hollins98

Farmarsky was one of the last to disappear from my table before I switched to rohliky :( All these frozen and baked kinds of bread were good at the begining, now the quality is worse and worse. I just like the ciabatta from a bio shop on Vinohradska but, first, I can't go there every day, second, it's very expensive for the bread. I don't like this Russian Borodino bread (dark brown, sugary and spicy) either. Seriously thinking about buying the baking machine...

Can't see the point of rohliky, rock hard an hour after purchase and full of nothing, only fit for some of the purposes Mel mentions. I don't mind housky but although I adore poppy seeds I'm allergic to even a trace of them so each housek(singular form?) has to be carefully examined before buying. I seem to be one of the few who loves ordinary bog standard Czech bread especially completely fresh and if it's past that then toasted. With lashings of butter and marmite - yummy. A taste shared so far by all visitors from the UK. (Just as well because they get offered nothing else) And all of the other dark breads that I can try out.....but they have to have caraway in:D

well not all rohliky are created equal :D same applies to bread (even if it is called the same, e.g., sumava) - as in most places, it really depends on the baker the rohliky i buy locally are actually made from the same dough as housky - just the shape differs - and like i mentioned, they have to be crunchy and fresh - i will never buy what i call the "mass-produced" ones such as the ones they sell at penny and kaufland p.s. jedna houska ;)

08:47:36 12.04.2008 meluzina

btw if anyone shops at kaufland, the local one here has whole-grain rohliky (or seven-grain?) not sure which now - that are not bad - and, although they sell the bad mass-produced white rubber rohliky, their pletynky are good

And if you dare to make you own chewy bread... HOMEMADE ROHLIKY · Ingredients 3 cups (700 milliliters) of flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg yolk 1 cup (235 milliliters) milk 25 grams of fresh yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 egg, beaten Crystal salt, caraway and poppy seeds (optional) To prepare: · Heat oven to 175° Celsius (350° Fahrenheit) · Mix yeast, half of the milk (at room temperature), sugar and one spoonful of flour in a small bowl. · Combine salt, remaining flour and egg yolk in a large mixing bowl. Add yeast mixture, remaining milk and melted butter. Work the dough until it has a rough, bumpy surface. Cover with a teacloth and let rise (about 30 minutes). · Once risen, roll out the dough about 5 millimeters thick (about 3/16 inch). Cut into narrow triangles about 20 centimeters (8 inches) long and roll them tightly, starting at the long side and continuing to the tip. (If the tip starts to pull back, moisten the surface with water and press until set.) · Place rolls on a baking sheet and let rise again for about 10 minutes. Brush with beaten egg. Dust with crystal salt and caraway or poppy seeds, if desired. · Bake until lightly browned (20-30 minutes).

and if you don't like cyber's rohlikz recipe, you can try this one: Rohlíky Ingredients: 1 cube yeast (42 g), 1 tablespoon sugae, 500 g flour, 1 teasponn salt, 4 tablespoons oil, 1/4 litre water or this recipe: 50 dkg flour, 1 teaspoon sugar, 5 dkg butter, 1 egg, 3 dkg yeast, 1/8 litre milk, 1 dkg salt the point is - there is not any one rohlik recipe - the name rohlik is for the shape, not for the dough...

09:54:14 12.04.2008 meluzina

In Prague 6 at Orechovka (where the kino is), there's a bakery there that makes amazing rohliky - they also do housky and veky from the same dough....go there first thing in the morning and pick some up warm and fresh!

Thanks for grammar :D The list of things I have to test-eat next time I see you grows and grows....:) I think the main problem may be that I don't really like crusty rolls so purpose of rohliky is defeated before I start. I was just struck by the devastating thought that I could become allergic to caraway in the same way as I did to poppy seed......

Quote: Hollins98Anything but rohliky and housky! They taste like cotton. :D

I think you re talking about the toast bread. Now, that's 100% cotton. Rohliky have a shelf life of a just few hours before they turn rubbery. In the old times the bakers would bake them 3 times a day. The commies put the bakers out of business and the Czechs got used to the rubber duck taste because under the commies the rohliky was produced once a day in baking factories. Slowly though, the baker class is rising. Give it a decade or two and there be fresh rohliky 3x a day. The rubbery properties of old rohliky gave rise to it's unique stick shape. The shape makes it convenient to dip it in soups and gulash type dishes. That's how old rohliky are consumed.

I buy some truly excellent whole grain toast bread at Billa, nothing artificial, no E's....not cottony at all :)

You people are weird. The only time I would use a Rohlik is to stop the bleeding or to keep my car from rolling down the street. Ever thought about how many Rohliks are consumed everyday in Czech. It's scary and repulsive at the same time. On that point I miss frozen waffles.
