The everyday roll in Hungary (pronounced poh-gotcha). They are a cross between what we know as a croissant and a biscuit and can be eaten for any meal, as a snack, part of an appetizer with korozott (Hungarian Liptauer cheese spread), or with soup. Their rich, full flavor comes from sweet butter, fresh eggs, local sour cream, and fresh dill. They are light and tender from the lamination process of making them with a little yeast. Do yourself a favor and try one. It’ll make your soul happy.
