    Hey can this be mixed and risen in a bread machine or is it better not? I have trust issues with baking bread :)

      Haha, Lisa! I understand. :)

      I haven’t tried it in a bread machine, but I imagine it would work as well — just take it out and follow the directions after letting it rise the first time. I’d love to know how it turns out!

        I tried this in the bread machine and followed the direction after letting it rise the first time, they turned out perfect!

    This is very similar to my french bread recipe that I use my bread machine to do the work for me. I use the dough setting. Then after I roll out and form my bread or rolls I let it rise again on the baking pan. I read somewhere to put a bowl of ice cubes in the oven while it bakes and the crust gets a little crisper while the inside stays soft and tender.
    Last weekend I made them in club-sized rolls for the pulled pork I had in the crockpot. When you make everything from scratch a few shortcuts are nice.

    Love your website and recipes Lacey!!

      Hi Diane! Thanks for sharing how you make your french bread. I usually use my bread machine to make the dough too, but I just got a kitchenaid mixer and I’m in love. See you around!

        Kitchenaid mixers are awesome! I got mine 21 years ago and still LOVE it. This summer I got the ice cream maker attachment – incredible! Enjoy yours Lacey!

    Interesting recipe … gone into my “to do” file.

    Thank you.

    Hoagie rolls look great-going to give them a trial run tonight-the better half has a pot luck she’s going to on Friday, so I offered to make rolls-these fit the bill!

    Made ‘em last night as a trial run for Friday. Actually shaped them as hamburger buns (yielded 8) and they were very good. A hearty dense yeast roll that’s easy to make. Thanks again!

    After searching for zucchini noodles, finding you and perusing your site, I spotted your article on roast beef. Noticing how rare it was, I realized that you are after my own heart. You have been bookmarked.

    These were great! The only complaint I have is that they were pretty salty. Next time I’ll cut the salt down to 1 1/2 tsp and see where that gets me. Otherwise these are perfect rolls. The crust on them is fantastic – crisp, but not too crisp. And the center is fluffy and soft. Yum!

    I am relatively new to bread making, so please go easy on me! When I tried your recipe, I found them pretty dense and not as light as other rolls. I usually do things by hand. What did I do wrong? Not let it raise enough/overknead? Any feedback would be helpful!

    1. lacey - a sweet pea chef December 8, 2011, 2:03 pm

      Hi Tom — bread making can be extremely frustrating, so please don’t worry! For how long did you kneed the dough? Did you get it to the point where it got elastic? That can make a really big difference in whether the dough is light versus dense. This recipe will make a more dense roll as well, which may just not be what you’re looking for.

    I made meatball sandwiches tonight with this fresh baked hoagie bread and they were fantastic! Great roll. Great crust!!

  10. Carol January 11, 2012, 4:28 pm

    I just pulled these out of the oven and tried them with butter….YUM!! My son loved it too. I made these for his sandwiches foe school as I didn’t feel like running to the store. I very much prefer these!

    I believe 1/4 oz yeast is equal to 2 1/4 tsp, but in the recipe not sure to use 1 1/2 or 2 1/4 (1/4oz)tsps???

    I’m from Philly and have been looking for a good hoagie roll recipe. After a couple different tries (and failures) I can say that this one is the best! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Michelle July 17, 2012, 5:49 pm

    Great recipe! Thank you for sharing!

    Homemade food always tastes best & now that my little ones are getting older they love to help me cook. These hoagie buns were easy and delicious! Your recipes are fantastic 8′) keep up the great work. My family loves everything!!!

    This recipe worked really well for me! I replaced 1 cup of the bread flour with 1 cup of whole wheat bread flour and used the dough setting on my bread machine to mix. Thanks so much. I really like your website and your approach.

    i have been going through so many different recipes for hoagies but they were never great
    these are perfect im glad i found this recipe

    I’m from Denmark and we don’t really have ‘bread flour’ and ‘all purpose flour’. Can you explain the difference? Or is it fine to just use regular wheatflour with some wholewheat mixed in. If so, how much wholewheat is appropriate?

    Kind regards

    1. lacey - a sweet pea chef May 9, 2013, 8:50 pm

      Hi Mads. Bread flour is just a higher gluten count than all purpose flour so it is better to use to make breads and cookies. Using whole wheat flour in the same quantity should be fine as a substitute.

    Have you ever shaped this recipe into a loaf of french bread? ‘Cause that’s what I’m about to attempt, and I’m hoping it works. Suggestions?

  19. mia June 30, 2013, 2:51 pm

    loved your recipe so did everyone in my house. they lasted a whole 5 minutes. thanks so much. only rolls I’ve tried that didn’t go flat in the second stage of proofing

  20. Mike December 11, 2013, 10:50 am

    These look so good, can’t wait to try it.

  21. Meg February 5, 2014, 10:04 pm

    I just made these for my husband and I to make sandwiches out of. We just ate one of the rolls plain because it was so delicious! I’m not a very experienced bread maker, but these came out so amazingly well. We’re so happy with them!

    I tried making these exactly like the instructions above but when I began to mix the liquids with the flour mix I completely panicked and pulled out my food processor for the kneading…so glad I glad I did (my first time making bread). The Hoagie bread was awesome, my family loved them. Thank you will def continue to make these

    1. Lacey Baier April 16, 2014, 4:43 pm

      Yay! I’m glad it turned out well. Congrats on making bread for the first time :)

      1. noemi May 15, 2014, 2:09 pm

        hi , I would like to know if u roll out the dough flat and then roll it backup or u just make a ball ????

      2. noemi May 15, 2014, 4:33 pm

        hi. lacey I have been making lots of different recipes for hoagie roll and I did like them. but now I found an AMAZING one. yours we LOVE this hoagie rolls.and they are so so GOOD.. thank you for this recipe.

        1. Lacey Baier May 15, 2014, 5:13 pm

          Yay!!! I’m so happy to hear that, Noemi. To answer your other question, there’s no need to roll out the dough before forming the balls. :)
