Innovative Ways To Use Kaiser Buns

You might find inventive uses for Kaiser buns if you purchased or produced more than you needed for a particular recipe or menu for a special occasion. Kaiser buns have soft, fluffy fillings and crusty exteriors. 

These buns, also referred to as Vienna rolls, are created with a few basic components like yeast, egg, salt, and butter. Additionally, sesame or poppy seeds are occasionally sprinkled on top of them. The rolls are simple to make or can be bought bulk from a nearby bakery or grocery shop. 

By preventing food waste, you’ll be able to save money while still providing delectable breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for your guests.

Breakfast Sandwiches 

Sandwiches provide hearty, fulfilling breakfast meals as well, despite being more frequently offered as lunch food. They’re perfect for hectic workday mornings because they’re simple to eat on the go. 

The sandwiches can be prepared the night before, wrapped in foil, and eaten on the commute to work or school. Any form of breakfast dish, such as scrambled or sunny-side-up eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheese, can be put within the crusty buns. 

Add sliced tomatoes or red onions for a more nutritious variation. Add a dollop or two of homemade hollandaise sauce for a fancy touch.

Garlic Bread 

Make excellent garlic bread that can be served to your family or visitors along with spaghetti or lasagna using kaiser buns that have been cut in half. Toss dried parsley flakes and garlic salt over the rolls after spreading butter over them. You can also include grated Parmesan or chopped, shredded mozzarella.

Replace the garlic salt with finely chopped garlic for a deeper flavor. Bake the rolls until the crusts are crisp and the cheese has melted.

Tuna Melts   

Prepare your preferred classic tuna salad recipe and serve it on Kaiser bread that has been cut in half if you’re searching for a casual lunch or dinner. Rolls should be covered in foil after being topped with your preferred cheese, like Swiss or cheddar.

Serve the sandwiches with pickles, potato chips, or potato salad after baking the sandwiches until the cheese has melted.

Use a Kaiser bun as a bread bowl

The first thing that comes to mind when you purchase a box of Kaiser buns may be to make your preferred kind of sandwich with them. There are other uses for this bread product as well, but kaiser rolls can be an excellent option for many kinds of sandwiches. 

Making a bread dish out of your kaiser bun is one alternative. This bun’s design and robust exterior work nicely for this application. Simply chop off the top of the bun and hollow out some of the interior to form it into a bowl to make a bread bowl. These are a few creative ways to use a Kaiser bun as a bread dish.

Soups And Stews

During the fall and winter, soups and stews are filling options. While you might typically offer them to your guests in bowls or cups, bread bowls can be a fun alternative. 

The size of a kaiser bun produces a bowl that is ideal for serving appetizer-sized portions. As long as they’re thick, you may put any kind of soup or stew in your kaiser bun bread bowl.


If you’re making a dip to go with veggie sticks, serving it in a kaiser bun bread bowl is a pretty presentation. You can lay the bread bowl in the middle of a serving plate, fill it with your choice of dip (preferably one that is thick), and surround it with a variety of vegetable sticks. 

The kaiser bowl offers more than just a unique serving manner; it also has other benefits. If you use it in place of a regular bowl, you’ll have one fewer dish to clean and your guests can enjoy breaking the kaiser bowl into pieces when it’s empty.
