A Kaiser Roll is a large round roll with a hard crust. 

In Buffalo, New York, they make a Cold Roast Beef Sandwich called Beef on Weck on a Kaiser-type roll. Weck is the name for the roll, an abbreviation of the German word kümmelweck, which translated directly means “caraway.” 

In Beef on Weck, the tops of the rolls are brushed with a cornstarch and water mixture, sprinkled with coarse Salt and Caraway Seeds, and then heated in the oven for a few minutes so the Salt and Caraway Seeds adhere.
