      I haven’t been too successful finding exactly what you’re looking for, but I found a site that has a “Grinder/Hoagie Roll” recipe. Maybe this is worth trying???

      Grinder Hoagie Roll Recipe
      Grinder Hoagie Roll Recipe – – The Pizza Maker’s Journal

      1-1/8 cup water (about 70 degrees F)
      1-5/8 tsp Salt
      3-3/8 tsp Sugar
      1-2/3 Tbl Olive Oil
      16 oz Strong Bread Flour or Hi-Gluten Flour
      2-1/2 tsp Yeast

      Mix the ingredients until smooth and well-blended. Scale the dough into 3.5 oz balls. I usually get about 7 balls from a batch this size.

      Allow them to rest for 20-30 minutes then roll them into a thin sheet about 1/4 inch thick. Roll each sheet (jelly roll fashion) to form long slender loaves. Place loaves onto a baking sheet with the seam side down.

      Keep them 2 inches apart so they do not touch during the next rise.

      Place the tray of formed loaves in a warm oven (ideal is 100 degrees with 75% humidity). I usually place a bowl of water in the lower oven to keep things humid. Allow the loaves to rise for 45 to 60 minutes.

      Once risen, use a razor to make a 1/4 inch deep slit on the top of the loaves and mist them lightly with water. Bake for 20 minutes at 450 degrees or until they turn brown.

      Remove them from the oven and cool them on wire screens or racks. The rolls last only a day or two before becoming stale. They are great for Italian hoagies or Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches.


      (I included we address because they have pictures on the site.)

      Keep on rolling…..I love subway bread too. Having a recipe to make the bread, oh boy that would be great. Love the recipes so far though, way to go.

      Rtebalt, you have always been able to come through with something when it comes to recipes. Great Job.

      Thanks I will try that. The idea I came up with is Subway uses Italian subrolls so i am using my favorite Italian bread recipe and instead of making it into one big loaf I will take the dough divide it into smaller pieces and let it rise the second time and use those.

      I am totally drooling all over the computer thinking about this one.
      thank you!

    • #408347

      Not a problem still haven’t found one for the white bread I guess its a secret

    • #408365

      Having worked at Subway about 20 years ago, I can tell you that they order their dough and set it out to proof…that being said I dont know about the flavored bread. I am not sure if they even order the regular anymore. I know Dominoes dough comes in on a tray that is also set out to proof.

    • #408369

      i figured that was part of it, I know Quiznos does to since I worked there. Wonder if we could find out who they get it from and work from there

    • #408374

      Most of the Subway owners around here dont speak english too well – I dont go there to much anymore…
