Egyptian Fino Bread or as some call it long bread rolls, are soft, light, and are perfect for making sandwiches. This bread tastes so good plain, in fact, I sometimes grab one roll and dip it in a glass of warm milk and it is still satisfying.

In Egypt, this bread is called Fino, samoli in Saudi Arabia, and sammoon is what it’s called back in my country UAE. To be honest I’m not yet sure about the origin of this bread but I know that it is mostly made with eggs to enhance the flavor and to make it chewy. I didn’t use eggs in my recipe, yet the result is cloud like light loaves or rolls!

I am tired of buying bread from stores that have strange after taste. So the best thing to do in my humble opinion is to make few loaves and freeze for later. You can use these Egyptian Fino Bread the same way you use dinner rolls.
