Homemade Hero Rolls
Last Sunday we realized we were out of bread
for sandwiches! I couldn’t
believe we forgot to buy bread on Saturday, so since Matt was doing homework
(as usual), I decided to try and make my own hero rolls.
I love Gandolfo’s rolls and sandwiches! What better than making our own bread and sandwiches, I won’t lie, I was pretty proud! They were delicious!
4 ¼ cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons softened butter
1.Add the yeast, sugar, and 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl of a stand mixer.
2.Using a whisk, mix and set aside for 10 minutes or until the yeast has bubbled quite a bit.
3.In the stand mixer with the dough hook add in the flour and water. Start off on low.
4.Mix for 4 minutes.
5.Add in the salt and mix for 5-6 minutes until the dough is pulling away from the sides. At this point, your mixer should be at medium speed.
6.Add in the butter and mix for 1-3 minutes or until the dough comes back together.
7.Remove from bowl and transfer to a greased, covered bowl until doubled in size. About one hour.
8.Divide into 8 pieces and shape. I would advise using as little flour as possible when shaping these. The more flour you add, the tougher the hoagies will be.
9.Transfer to a sprayed, parchment-lined tray and cove
10. Allow rising again for about 45 minutes to an hour.
11. Preheat the oven to 375 and bake for 15-25 minutes or until golden brown.
