Hoagie Rolls:

NOTE: This hoagie roll recipe is not too different from many that exist, except for a few very minor differences. Many hoagie roll recipes recommend using rapid rise yeast and this one uses active dry yeast. It bakes at 360F, not the typical 400F. It also uses brown sugar instead of simple cane sugar.

Ingredients:

1) Unbleached Flour - 4 cups
2) Honey - 1 tsp.
3) Olive Oil - as required
4) Active Dry Yeast - 1/4 Oz. packet.
5) Brown Sugar - 2 tsp.
6) Water - 2 cups

Makes 8 rolls.


Procedure:

1) Warm 1/4 cup water and add active dry yeast in a mixing bowl.
2) Sprinkle 1 tsp. sugar on top of the water.
3) Let sit until the yeast makes the water frothy.
4) Add an additional 1-1/4 cups warm water and 1 tsp. sugar and stir.
5) Stir in 1 tsp. honey.
6) Add in flour, mix and knead using hands.

NOTE: Have a bowl of water handy to wash hands.

7) Slick the inside of a bowl with olive oil.
8) Form the dough into a ball and lightly coat with the olive oil.
9) Cover and allow the dough to rise 45 minutes and double in size.
10) Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
11) Punch down the dough.
12) Form about 8 dough balls and lightly flour each.

NOTE: To divide the dough, first split the large dough ball in half. Then, split each half in half and finally split those quarters into eight pieces, as equal in size as possible.

NOTE: Don't worry if the dough balls are not all of equal size.

13) Shape each dough ball into an elongate loaf.

14) Place each dough loaf on parchment papered baking sheet.
15) Slit the tops lengthwise.
16) Cover and allow to rise again for 25 to 30 minutes.
17) Bake on bottom rack of 360F oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

NOTE: Bake until the outside begins to become a golden brown, no longer.

18) Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack.
19) Package in a sealed plastic bag or use as desired.

So its a no knead dough? We don't get Hoagie rolls here so not sure how the texture is meant to be.

My understanding of kneading, BTW, is not just working the dough, but a process whereby the dough is given adhesive strength. Without kneading, the dough will be crumbly.

A hoagie roll is similar to a hot dog bun, a bit bigger and not as sweet and the bread is harder (not like sourdough, but more than a hot dog or hamburger bun).

Would love to see a money shot of it sliced open.

I'm not sure what a money shot is, but here is a photo of one of the hoagies cut in half ...

And here's an Italian sausage sandwich using the same hoagie roll.
