Flat Bread and Rolls (Osúch a Rožky)

« »

Ingredients: bread dough, caraway seeds, oil, salt
Prep Time: 30 minutes for baking

We had some dough left over from making bread, so we used it to make osúch (dry flat bread) and rožky (bread rolls). Rožky are very popular in Slovakia. They look like tiny baguettes and are eaten with salads.
