mangia mondays 59: italian hoagie rolls

hi friends!
welcome to
a blog hop i host each week with
the astonishing
lisa from shine your light.

this week i'm sharing a recipe i found on
italian hoagie rolls

2 1/4 tsp bread machine yeast
1 C + 1 TBS warm water
1 TBS sugar
1/8 C olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS italian seasoning
1 tsp onion flakes
1 C whole wheat flour
2 C bread flour

1a. combine ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed by your machine. mine calls for all the wet ingredients first, salt, then all the dry ingredients, topped off with the yeast. set to dough cycle & let it do the kneading for you!

1b. alternatively, you can...
mix the yeast, water & sugar in a bowl & set aside until yeast is activated (you'll see it because it's foamy).

in a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients but the flour & stir to combine. next, add 1.5 C of flour & mix well. add dry ingredients to the yeasty mix & stir well to combine. continue adding the remaining 1.5 C of flour until dough stiffens. when stiff, place dough on a lightly floured surface & knead for 5-10 minutes, or until smooth and silky.

lightly mist a bowl with oil/cooking spray & place the dough in the bowl. turn to coat the dough with the oil. cover with a towel & set in a warm place to rise until dough has doubled in size.
{this takes between 60-90 minutes, depending on the temperature of your kitchen.}

here's where you pick up the recipe if you've made the dough with the bread machine:

2. punch down the dough to release air. divide the dough into hoagie-sized buns (i.e., long, skinny log rolls) & place on a parchment lined cookie sheet spaced a few inches apart. cover with a towel & let dough rise again for 30-60 minutes, until doubled. 

3. bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or so, & allow buns to cool before splitting and serving. 

we LOVED these rolls - & they are SO easy to make
with a bread machine!

what did we put on them?
i cut up some steak & seared it in a hot skillet
then added it to a use-up-what-you-have-in-your-fridge marinara sauce
& let it simmer for a couple of hours.
we topped it with some mozzarella
& boy, oh boy, were they AMAZING sandwiches.
definitely adding this recipe to our rotation. :)
