    I want to put coarse salt on rolls, like you buy kaiser rolls, is this done before cooking, and how thank you.

    Most bread doughs will absorb salt sprinkled on the outside. Bagels, because they're boiled and the outer layer of starch is gelatinized, don't absorb the salt the same way. I've never seen kaiser rolls with salt on the top, only poppy or sesame seeds.

    You can try, if you get a coarse (but not too hard) salt. Kosher salt is probably too fine, and coarse sea salt is probably too coarse. You could use a Maldon flake salt, but it's really expensive. What I'd do is let the rolls rise after shaping (the second rise). Just before baking, I'd brush the tops with a little water, then sprinkle generously with salt, and pop them straight into the oven.

    Please let us know if it works for you.

    I thought you wld. brush them with melted butter and then sprinkle with the salt, but will try water first and let you know.

    I find brushing the surface with an egg wash and then sprinkling with salt immediately before baking works best. The egg wash also gives the rolls a nice gloss.

    (You can make the egg wash with a whole egg, or just the yolk or just the white + a bit of water beaten into it.)

    LOVE LAKE:
    Good afternoon. Yes, my opinion is to add 1, tsp of water to 1, scrambled egg. icon_surprised.gif Then apply same to the surface of your baked product & then add the seeds or whatever you are adding to the surface. Approx. 3, minutes before removing the baking tray from the oven RE~APPLY the egg wash again by "PATTING'.. the egg wash gently again on it's top surface... this is so that the topping will be secured in place in handling when cooled. icon_biggrin.gif

    I hope this technique helps you get want you are looking for.
