Soft Hoagie or Sub Rolls

I don't know about you, but I have missed eating subs and hoagies on soft tender buns! The store bought variety is anything but that! This recipe makes perfectly soft tender buns every time. I used the same recipe I used for my hamburger and hot dog buns. I am still amazed at how delicious this recipe is! They are so easy to throw together too! Let's get started shall we?

Preheat your oven to 375F.
Once you have the dough ready, lightly flour your work surface with all-purpose flour. Place the dough on the work surface and lightly flour the surface, just a dusting will do.

Gently press the dough into a rectangle about 7x4.

Lightly dampen the dough with a little water by wetting your hands and patting the surface. Roll up the dough into a cylinder. Turn it over so the seam side is down and gently pat it into a rectangle about 7x2 and 1 inch thick.

Using a spatula gently lift the dough and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Continue with the remaining dough in the same manner. It makes five good sized hoagie rolls.

Place the baking sheet in a warm place to rise for 20 minutes.
They didn't rise much, but that's ok!

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
Note to self. Support the rolls on the ends next time.

Gently pull the rolls apart and place on a wire rack to cool before slicing. Store any leftover rolls tightly wrapped in the freezer for later use.
