Featured Recipe: Hoagie Buns

If you're trying to get a few last-minute summer picnics in, then you ought to take a look at this week's recipe. Rhodes blogger Whitney shows you how easy it is to make your own soft a...

Hi, everyone! Summer is a great time for sandwiches, and it's nice to change up the routine of sliced bread once in a while. We like hoagies at our house! I find a lot of store-bought hoagies fall apart on me, though, and are too dry. What better way to get a great hoagie than making your own? It's incredibly fast and easy, and the results are fantastic. Let's get started.

 

For this recipe, you'll need one loaf of Rhodes White Bread dough, thawed. I thawed mine on the countertop, but you can also place the frozen loaf, wrapped or bagged, in your refrigerator overnight. Cut one loaf into 4 equal pieces for a 6-8 inch bun, or you can make extra large 12 inch buns by cutting the loaf in half. That's what I wanted to do. Thaw two loaves if you want four hoagies instead of two, like I did!

Take the plastic wrap or bag off your thawed loaf of bread and cut the bread lengthwise down the middle. I used scissors!

Ta-da! Two (pretty) equal halves.

Place your halves on a greased baking sheet. I wanted to make four foot-long hoagies, so I thawed an extra loaf of bread. Those are going on the baking sheet too.

Spray the top of the dough with some cooking spray, or brush with oil.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot to rise. The time will depend on the temperature of your house, so just keep an eye on them!

When the hoagies are puffed and risen, about double in size, place them in a preheated 350-degree oven.

These are great on days when you are not able to get out to the store, or just don't feel like going out. I always have froznen dough on hand. At least once a week I make these. They're life savers. Quick to make for company too!

I have been dying to make hoagies with fresh bread but never was able to get quite the taste or size I wanted. Never would have thought of doing it this way. What a wonderful idea!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent and inspiration with us.

The first time I made hoagie buns I only made 2, but used 2 rolls instead of a loaf and rolled it together and to length, I found it made my Tuna Salad much better. Everything is better with fresh bread.
