Bridge rolls are a variation of french brioche rolls, which means there is egg in the dough. They are shaped into logs before baking which make them perfect hand held sandwiches stuffed with your favorite fillings.
The exact origin is not exactly known but appeared around WWI when officers, who were used to brioche on their breakfast trays turned to bridge rolls. It was also around this time that Bridge became a popular game with officers.
Bridge Rolls filled with a mixture of chopped chicken and mayonnaise were one of Queen Mary’s favorite casual meals.
