Now whenever my daughter is craving her subway sandwich, I will be making a batch of these homemade hoagie rolls.

Trying out the Recipe

homemade subway sandwichesThe other night, I made these and bought all the toppings to make our favorite “subway” sandwich. They tasted better than I had imagined. The kids and I liked the taste better than subway bread. I thought it compared more to the taste of Jimmy Johns bread, with a little more density to it. The Spicy Italian is our go to sandwich from Subway. I am very much a creature of habit, and order this every time, with the same toppings….always. Salami, pepperoni, cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, olives, mayo, mustard, salt and pepper. There you have it, my version of the spicy italian. After “making” my sandwich, I took a big bite. It tasted just like a subway sandwich, but with better bread! Is that really possible? Absolutely, with this recipe!
