- Classic New England fried clam sandwiches are made with top-split hot dog rolls. They’re kind of rectangular, split on the top (not the side), with no side crusts. If you can’t find them, mimic them by cutting down a short baguette. To make 4 rolls, use 2 short baguettes (about a footlong or 30-cm baguette). Cut each baguette in half crosswise to make four pieces. Then for each one, roll it on its side and trim off the crusty bottom and top. Cut through the “side” (what will be the top of the roll) to create a pocket for the fillings.
- The Wicked Kitchen Piri Piri Mayo and the Garlic & Caramelized Onion mayo are both fantastic here. Or use your favorite flavored mayo.
