Hoagie Rolls


When I first started Babybakes, I was brand new to bread making. There is a recipe for hoagie rolls on this blog from when the site first began, and I will keep it there for nostalgic and historical value. But if I'm being perfectly honest, that recipe is terrible.

I have been searching since then for the perfect authentic hoagie roll recipe, and baby, this is it.

(Adapted from The Kitchen Whisperer)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 3/8 cups warm water (110-115F degrees)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp cold butter, cubed


Instructions:

  1. Add the yeast, sugar and 3/8 cup warm water in a bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. Using a whisk or spoon, mix and set aside for 5-10 minutes or until the yeast has bubbled quite a bit.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook (this would be the same bowl your yeast mixture is in) add in the flour and water. Start off on low.
  4. Mix for 4 minutes.
  5. Add in the salt and mix for 5-6 minutes until the dough is slack. At this point your mixer should be at medium speed.
  6. Add in the butter and mix for 1-3 minutes or until the dough comes back together.
  7. Remove from bowl and transfer to a greased, covered bowl until doubled in size. ~1 hour.
  8. Divide into 8 pieces and shape.
  9. Transfer to a sprayed, parchment lined tray and cover.
  10. Allow to rise again. ~30-45 minutes.
  11. Preheat oven to 375 and bake for 16-23 minutes or until golden brown.
