On Monday, I posted about our delicious build-your-own sub sandwiches. Today, I want to share the recipe for the homemade sub rolls that I usually make for them — they really bump things up a notch from store-bought rolls.
These sub buns are simple and easy to make — of the 2 1/2 hours from start to finish, there’s only about 15 minutes of hands on time. My secret is to use a silicone bread mold to shape and bake the rolls (a la most sub shops). That way, you’ll get perfect rolls every time. So, without further ado, here’s the recipe:
Homemade sub rolls
Makes 4 sub rolls
By Jane and Michael’s Gourmet Extravaganza
- 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 2 Tbsp + 2 tsp of vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups bread flour
- 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup warm water
Combine 1/2 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp yeast, and 1/4 cup warm water in a mixing bowl. Let set 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and knead until it forms a smooth and soft dough. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
Place the silicone bread mold on a cookie sheet. Divide dough into 4 equal portions, shape into leaves, and place in silicone mold. Cover and let rise 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until top of rolls is golden and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from silicone mold and let cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
