Brötchen (bread rolls)
Germans like to add a linguistic diminutive to their favorite things, turning bread (Brot) into rolls with Brötchen. The standard version is plain white, for which some regions have their own word, including Semmeln, Wecken, Schrippen or Rundstück. You can find white rolls with sesame or poppy seeds, as well as an array of whole-grain rolls. Pumpkin seed, rye and spelt are also popular.
