ISO recipe for "hard rolls"

Growing up in southern NYS, we always had hard rolls for breakfast on the weekend (purchased at the local bakery) or for lunch with cold cuts. I'm no longer living in the metro NY area and cannot find anything similar. Does anyone have a recipe for these rolls? Some had poppy seeds on them (as a kid I always knocked them off before taking a bite...didn't like them). Crispy crust, and like a baguette on the inside. They looked like Kaiser rolls but were not soft on the outside. thanks!
