Mexican Bolillo Bread

This is a type of savory roll traditionally made in Mexico. This crusty hard roll is usually broken in half with the soft, fluffy insides (known as the migajón) removed- and devoured! The exterior shell is then used as a torta or to scoop up and hold other food.

When Carlota walked in, the first thing she noticed was the exquisite smell of bread and hot chocolate floating in the air among the tapestries. Her stomach rumbled with such force that she thought everyone must have heard it….. The pope spoke a few words to her, but she wasn’t listening: she was fixated on the steaming cup of thick chocolate in which His Holiness was dipping bread.

Hi friends!! I’m Jenni, The Nerdy Gourmet. I love books and I love food. Combining the two with a splash of travel has become my passion. I am a self taught cook/baker and I believe that everyone can cook from scratch! I’m here with recipes and Nerdy Tips to help along the way.  
I review books, mostly ‘read’ via audio, and I create recipes inspired by the story lines. Sometimes if I am deeply moved by a story, I will travel and try my best to experience the book- and bring you along via my blog! I provide all the photographs and content for the Nerdy Gourmet (unless otherwise noted). 

  1. Hi Claudia! I’m so happy that you’ve reached out. Thank you so much fir the kind words and the recommendation!…
