Easy Hoagie Recipe

I’m ready for it. Go ahead and let me have it about how darn long I took to post our hoagie roll recipe. And if you’re new here I’ll let you in on my story. It’s not a very exciting one, but it is the truth.

Years ago I posted our favorite recipe for French Dip Sandwiches. It’s a slow cooker recipe with only a few ingredients, all of which are generally on hand anyway, so it makes it easy to bust out a comfort foods dinner without a trip to the grocery store.

We even make our own hoagie rolls because it goes so fast, it’s easier for me than to remember to run to the store. The only problem is, I didn’t think everyone else would want to make them too, but boy was I wrong!

At first there was a comment saying they would like the recipe and I had stated I would post it, but I forgot and got busy aka side tracked with the gazillion recipes always floating around in my head. And then over the past few months that recipe has gotten really popular and I not only started getting more comments, but emails too!

Awwww shoot. I totally had forgotten about posting the recipe. So I put it into my back pocket to do it and then forgot again.

Last week we were eating french dips for dinner when, BAM! I remembered that I was going to photograph them. I had hardly any light left and we were literally eating them so I quickly threw the hoagies on a board, snapped a few shots and now here we are.

What’s Needed for Hoagie Rolls? 

To make this hoagie bread recipe, you need 7 simple ingredients: 

  • Warm water
  • Instant yeast
  • Granulated sugar
  • Honey
  • All-purpose flour 
  • Salt
  • Butter

How to Make Hoagie Rolls 

This sub roll recipe is incredibly easy, but it does require some patience as the dough goes through two separate rises. 

  1. Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, make the dough (**see section below for tips on making the dough). 
  2. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled. 
  3. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper and shape the dough into 4-8 hoagies. 
  4. Cover lightly with a towel and allow to rise another 1 to 2 hours.
  5. Slit the top of each roll and brush with egg and milk mixture.
  6. Bake until golden and sound hard when you gently tap the outside. Brush with butter.

Tips for Making the Dough

Since posting this recipe, we have received several comments about the recipe being wrong, the dough is too wet, the ratios are off, etc. I started to wonder if somehow the recipe had been changed without my knowing it. So I made the recipe again exactly how it is written, and they came out perfectly!

In fact, they were so good, I re-photographed them and those pictures are the ones you see now.

The dough will seem a little wet and shaggy at first, but you just have to keep mixing it. As you work the gluten, the dough become so smooth and silky.

FAQ

What is a Hoagie Roll?

A hoagie roll is a type of long flat roll used to prepare hoagie sandwiches. A Hoagie is the same thing as a Sub sandwich, hero sandwich, or grinder.

How Long Will Hoagie Rolls Keep?

Wrap the rolls well, or place in a zip lock bag. Hoagie rolls will keep for 5-7 days at room temperature.

Can Hoagie Rolls Be Frozen?

Yes! To freeze hoagie rolls and buns, place them inside a freezer bag and seal tightly. Hoagie rolls will keep 3 months in the freezer.

 

Tips for Finishing Hoagie Rolls 

  • I highly recommend brushing the hoagie bread with butter before serving it. 
  • The bread is hard upon removal but quickly softens, so don’t worry that you over baked.
  • Let the sub rolls cool for 15 or so minutes before cutting them. 

 

Homemade is always better, and that has never been more true than with these easy hoagie rolls! No need to run to the store! I’m going to bet you have all 9 ingredients already in the house. Can’t wait for you try them!

Calories 270kcal
Author Sweet Basil

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups Warm Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Instant Yeast
  • 1 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 3 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter cubed
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, add the warm water, yeast, sugar, and honey.
  • Allow to foam up for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add the flour and using a dough hook mix for 4 minutes on low.
  • Increase the speed to medium and add the salt, mixing for another 3 minutes.
  • Finally, add the cold butter, one tablespoon at a time and mix for another minute or two after each addition. Continue to mix until no pieces of butter remain. This is going to be odd to see that butter slapping around in there, but trust me, as you mix the dough will firm up and be silky and all butter will be incorporated.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning over to coat, cover with a towel and allow to rise for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Place a silpat or parchment paper on a baking sheet and shape the dough into 4-8 hoagies depending on size preference. I like to flatten each piece into a rectangle, fold one end up like an envelope, turn 180 degrees and fold up the other end over the first. Repeat until you’ve formed a hoagie and pinch shut the seam and end seams.
  • Place seam side down and repeat with remaining dough.
  • Cover lightly with a towel and allow to rise another 1 to 2 hours.
  • Whisk together the egg white and milk. Using a razor blade, make a slit down the top of each roll. Brush each top with the egg mixture.
  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF, place the hoagie rolls on the baking pan and bake for 16 to 22 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven when they are lightly golden and feel hard when you tap the crust.
  • Rub with a little butter if desired and allow to cool.
  • The bread is hard upon removal but quickly softens, so don’t worry that you over baked.

Chickpea Sandwiches

We eat a lot of dinners  in the car or on the sidelines during sports seasons. This sandwich is quick to fix and packs really well.

It’s also really versatile and a lot of the ingredients can be kept in the pantry. Feel free to change it up to suit your own tastes and for what you’ve got on hand in the kitchen.

To me, it’s the pickles that make this sandwich. They add a really nice punch of flavor with a little crunch.

If you’ve got access to a garden fresh tomato, it would be fantastic on this sandwich! Unfortunately, those are hard to come by mid-winter, so we’ve been eating ours topped with greens.
