Cooking & Baking Essentials 

The Technique

Bread Knife

A serrated bread knife is an essential tool that should be in every kitchen. With the blade generally measuring approximately 8 to 10-inches in length, it makes slicing bread, rolls & sandwiches fast & simple. They are an important tool particularly when classic torta recipe preparations are in order so investing in a bread knife of quality is vital as it will prove to be more economical & useful over time. There are a few key factors that should be considered when choosing one to add to your collection. Look for a serrated knife made from corrosion-resistant high-carbon steel. Pick it up & make certain the handle feels natural & comfortable for use. As with any knife, they should be sharpened regularly so invest in a good device & follow the instructions outlined specifically for serrated knives.

 How To Slice Sandwich Bread Rolls 

It may seem like a relatively straightforward technique & truly it is. However, the right equipment will be necessary in order to create sliced rolls that may be used for classic Mexican sandwiches such as El Pepito Tortas & Mexican Beef Milanesa Tortas. They should yield an even, consistent result without jagged edges & the interior of the bread should not tear & create extra large crumbs in the center if performed correctly. Learn how to master this so simple task flawlessly.

Place a damp kitchen towel under a clean cutting board. This will keep the board stable & prevent it from moving when in use. Place a homemade yeast bread selection such as a Buttermilk Bolillo or a Buttermilk Telera Roll on the surface. Using the bread knife, gauge the center of the roll horizontally & begin using a sawing motion with the knife while positioning your other hand over the top. Spin the roll simultaneously in a counterclockwise motion while continuing the slicing of the roll until you end up where you originally began. Put the knife down & remove the top of the roll. Use as directed in specific recipe applications.
