I like to make food from scratch and bread is definitely no exception. These hoagie rolls beat anything you will find in the grocery store and take so little effort to make. They are so pillowy soft and full of flavor. As I understand, there is many names for these buns. They range from a hoagie, to a submarine (sub), a grinder, hero, and a muffaletta roll. You can call them what you want, but I love to fill these! The possibilities are endless when it comes to filling it with you favorite concoctions. These can be made to any size you would like too. I like to make them into 8″ rolls, but you can make them into a 12″ for a much larger sub bun. If you want more wheat flour in these too, add more but decrease the bread flour. Adding more whole wheat flour will possibly make them more dense though. Alternatively they can be made with all bread flour. So get your creative jeans on and fill these tasty babies up!
