    oil your pan or put some baking paper in it.Put the kiflis in it.Now get a brush and paint every kifli with the eggs.Spread some sesame on them and sprinkle it with the salty white stuff.

    Bake them in a preheated oven,on 18O C for 2O minutes.When the top gets light brown there done.
    Their nice and crispy,but soft inside.You can make them bigger or really small for snacks.
    You can fill them with just abouth anything that you have laying around in the fridge.Even with leftover chicken, or hot dogs.
    If your making them sweet sprinkle them with cinnamon or powdered sugar.

Hey! I live in Hungary and never heard of this ham-roll kifli thing but it must be yummy Happy What we call kifli here (in Budapest) is unflavoured and bigger than this one, and its pastry is not that heavy. But let's call it Violetta's kifli ;)
