This is as close as I've been able to come to German Broetchen.
Without access to German flour and water, it may be as close
as I'll ever come... [MG]

6 tablespoons warm water
(105 to 115 degrees F.)
1 envelope dry yeast
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour (use half bread flour
and half unbleached all-purpose flour)
1 1/4 cups warm water
(105 to 115 degrees F.)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water

Generously grease a large mixing bowl and baking sheet. Set aside.
Combine 6 tablespoons warm water with yeast and sugar in another large bowl and stir until yeast is dissolved. Let stand until foamy and proofed,
about 10 minutes. Add flours to yeast mixture alternately with remaining
warm water, stirring until well-blended. Mix in salt. Turn dough out onto
floured surface and knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 to
12 minutes (or mix with dough hook of electric mixer 6 minutes). Form
into ball. Transfer to greased bowl, turning to coat entire surface. Cover
lightly and let stand in warm draft-free area until doubled in volume, about
1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Punch dough down. Cover and let stand in warm, draft-free area 15
minutes. Transfer dough to floured surface. Cut into six 5-ounce pieces -
use scales to make sure pieces are of equal weight). Roll into balls. Cover
and let stand in warm, draft-free area until doubled, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Tops will get crusty and dry.
Flatten each ball and fold in half, crusty side in. Roll in palms of hands
to form "petit pain", about 5 1/2-by-1 1/2 inches, tapering ends. Arrange
rolls seam side down on prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart.
Cover and let stand in warm draft-free area until doubled, about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Position one rack in center of oven
and one in lower third. Place large shallow pan of water on lower rack.
Make slash 1/2 inch deep and 4 inches long down center of each roll.
Brush gently with egg wash. Set baking sheet on center oven rack and
bake, spraying rolls frequently with water to form crisp crust, about
20 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool. These rolls can be prepared
ahead and frozen.
