Sandwich Rolls

I make sandwiches several times a week for my daughter's boyfriend to take to work.  He is a chef at one of the cities best restaurants which means he has a very busy schedule.  When he's not working, he never wants to cook for himself.  I can sympathize. Having good homemade sandwiches to grab and throw in a backpack helps a lot. I'm always trying to make different bread and rolls and sandwich combinations to keep it from getting boring. 

This is a new recipe I made yesterday. The only good thing I can say about our rotten hot and humid weather is that it is great for bread rising.

This puffed up in 20 minutes.

The recipe:

½ cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp salt
2 cups water
6 cups of flour, plus some for dusting

Mix the flour into the rest of the ingredients and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough.  Cover and let it rise until doubled.

Punch down
and then divide into 12 pieces for Hoagie Buns
Roll into rectangles and then roll into mini loaves and tuck ends under.

Put loaves on a parchment covered cookie sheet and let rise for 30 more minutes.

Bake at 350* until golden brown (about 30-35 minutes).

These freeze very well.

You caught me right when I was in the mood to bake bread . . . thank you. These look wonderful :)
You are so right about summer and bread making, except if you live in the south it's like almost every day unless it's December thru half of February. That's our winter season. I love f**king love baking and I do it whenever I can.

Looks delicious but I'm usually not in the mood for baking when it is warm outside :-)

Have You ever seen a Swedish Sandwich cake? I show one in my blog today :-)

Have a great day!
