These are the real Brötchen from Germany in the La Jolla TJ's!! If you have been to Germany and tasted their delicious, crusty whole-grain rolls covered with seeds and missed them terribly as have I, your day has arrived! They are made with spelt flour and rolled in flaxseed, sunflower seed and sesame seed! My husband is from Germany and I bake bread but just have not been able to duplicate the texture of Brötchen. I wish the package stated "Brötchen" rather than seeded rolls, and were advertised in TJ's bakery section because a path would be beaten to their door; no one bakes bread like the Germans!

Then, last night, I was in the frozen aisle and there they were -- FROZEN Seeded Rolls from Germany. Not BAKERY section, for those who may be hunting also.
They are terrific. My employers are from Germany and they've often said they miss Brotchen rolls. I saw these were made in Germany, so I bought them and this morning we had them for breakfast, with butter, and they pronounced them "excellent."
They are moist (not like the hockey puck rolls TJ's sometimes sells) and square, and the perfect size for a lunch sandwich.
