Homemade Sub Sandwiches

Some local pizza places have been putting out these ads lately for their sub sandwiches that look so good.  All that melted cheese and fresh meat & veggies, mmmmm.  I knew I could make them just as good, if not better, and better for us, here at home.  They were a hit!  Kent & the kids raved like crazy, and we all know how nice that is when we nail it now and then.  Here’s how I made them:

Homemade Sub Sandwiches

  • Make homemade buns (That link is to the recipe for my pizza crust – after the first rise, just roll the dough in your buttered hands into big balls and lay them on a buttered cookie sheet and let them rise well before baking.  Bake 15-20 minutes at 350* ‘til golden brown.  You could also shape them so that they come out like hoagie-style buns (wider than a hot dog bun and a nice size for subs).  Scroll down there to find the updated recipe I added later that calls for molasses, only for this I used a bit less molasses and a little more honey.
  • Mix up some homemade mayo or homemade ranch dressing.
  • homemade sub sandwichesAfter the buns have cooled a bit, slice them in half (I use a steak knife, but any serrated knife would work).
  • Spread with soft butter and broil ‘til they’re a little crispy and just starting to get golden.  Watch them close or they can burn fast.
  • Use whatever cheese you’d like, I had cheddar and Monterey Jack, so I used some of each.  Broil until melted.  Again, keep a close eye on them.
  • Make your sandwich with whatever meat you have.  I had some sliced ham from our farmer, you could also use leftover chicken, turkey or roast beef.  (See my post on lunch meats.)
  • Add your favorite condiments, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, cucumber, avocado, or whatever you like.  (Do you like anything on your subs that I forgot?)

Let me know what you think!

    I’m drooling! (not a very attractive sight, let me tell you!) It makes me wish I hadn’t broken our oven a few weeks ago. I wonder if your rolls would bake okay in our thousand-year-old teeny tiny toaster oven (I’ve been using the breadmaker, which has been a lifesaver!).

    I love sub sandwiches. I have never tried to make buns – I am going to have to!

    Your rolls look wonderful! I don’t have a bread machine but I really want to make these. I hate the store bought rolls!
