Another question you may be asking yourself is what is Bolillo and why am I putting my glizzy in it? Bolillo is a type of savory bread made in Mexico and Central America, it’s a variation of a baguette. Bolillo is shorter in length and more often than not, baked in a stone oven. It was brought to Mexico in the 1860s by Emperor Maximilian the first of Mexico. Maximilian was an Austrian archduke who reigned as the only Emperor of the Second Mexican Empire, so if you were wondering how we got short baguettes in Mexico now you know who to point to.
There are many variations of the Bolillo, like birotes which are made from sourdough. There’s also telera, which is very similar but usually a bit softer and sweeter in taste. Other variations are made of alternate ingredients or fillings. When you use a Bolillo with this Cheesy Mexican Hotdog you can expect a savory, mild flavor that’s elevated by the glizzy and its condiments. Armed with the knowledge of the glizzy, and what Bolillo is, it’s time for you to make your own!
