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.
Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
That's it! Now, make yourself a sandwich!
