What Can You Make With Kaiser Buns?

When you take the time to explore the possibilities of homemade meals, the sky is truly the limit. Instead of ordering food on an app, look up a few recipes in order to make scrumptious meals at home. Take a look at what’s in your refrigerator in order to make a fresh dish. As you build your recipe repertoire, it’s good to keep more items on hand for amazing treats. If you’re not used to keeping kaiser buns on the grocery list, now is the time to get started. This is mainly because you can make one of the following recipes (or all three).

French Toast Casserole

If you have young children, invite them to join you as you rip the kaiser buns into shreds. In a baking dish, add ingredients like milk, vanilla extract, and sugar to the dish. Feel free to add your choice of sweet seasonings such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and cardamom for warmth. Allow the bread to soak in the mixture overnight. In the morning, pop the dish into the oven to bake. Before serving, top with syrup, fresh fruit, and powdered sugar.

Sloppy Joes

For many people, sloppy joes are synonymous with childhood. It’s such an easy way to enjoy a hot sandwich. Plus, kaiser buns are the perfect bread to use in order to house the meaty goodness of sloppy joes. After sauteeing fresh garlic, chopped onions, and your choice of meat in a pan, add tomato paste and brown sugar to the mix. After mixing, allow the meat sauce to cook on low heat for 45 minutes to an hour. Once the mixture gets fully cooked, heap the sauce onto a kaiser bun and serve.


Stuffing is often consumed as a holiday staple. However, stuffing can be served as a delicious side dish for Sunday dinners or a weeknight side dish. Bread is the primary ingredient in the stuffing. Once you’ve secured a bag of kaiser buns, cut them into cubes. Place the cubes on a large baking dish. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees, and allow them to toast for 90 minutes. Be sure to toss them halfway through the toasting process. Once the cubes are toasted, follow any standard stuffing recipe for amazing results.

Chilli in a Bread-Bowl

Individual kaiser buns have a crunchy outside, making for the perfect type of bread for chili. This makes for a tasty dish that ends in tasty kaiser bun strips covered in the leftover juices of the chili. Similar to other bread bowl dishes, the kaiser bread is not the main flavor profile but actually a delicious addition to any chili recipe. 

Kaiser Bun Nachos

Not your basic tortilla chip nachos, Kaiser bun nachos are made with crispy baked kaiser buns. Topped with savory meat sauce topped with cheese, green onions, and whatever else you want. Similar to a salad that can be eaten with a plate of crispy bread pieces instead of a fork. This is a great dish option, especially as the kaiser bun becomes firmer. However, by putting the bread in an oven for a few minutes, you can get the crispy bread pieces you need.

Breakfast Bread Rolls

Single served kaiser rolls with a breakfast egg nestled inside make for an easy dinner or a fancy breakfast. These are especially useful for catering to large groups. It’s recommended that you add cheese, bacon, or fresh veggies for flavor.

Think outside of the box when it’s time to make a meal. Instead of reaching for the store-prepared stuffing in a box, make it from scratch. Sure, it involves a few extra steps. However, once you make it from scratch, you won’t be able to fathom anything less. When you head to a restaurant and consume french toast, you’ll see that restaurant-quality pales in comparison to your homemade version. Cheers to more exploration within the walls of your kitchen with fun ingredients like kaiser buns.
