Bolillo

BililloA bolillo is a type of savory bread traditionally made in Mexico, where it originates. It is a variation of the baguette. It is about six inches long, in the shape of an oval, with a crunchy crust and a soft inside, known as migajón. A variation of the bolillo is the telera, which is very similar, though it has a more rounded shape, is divided in three sections, and is usually softer. Other variations include bolillos made of alternate ingredients such as whole wheat.
