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
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons softened
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
Allow to rise again for about 45 minutes to an hour.


Preheat oven to 375 and bake for 15-25 minutes or until golden
