Subway Sandwich Bread DIY

Here at Candysfarmhousepantry we are trying to bring you a better way to live.  Starting with Do It Yourself, Homemade or whatever words best describes how we want to live.  Personally here on my dead end road, getting rid of added sugar, fake food coloring and dyes, preservatives and other added junk in my food that is killing me over time.

Plus the more I stay out of the grocery stores the healthier my budget and wallet are.  Yes this takes some planning and perhaps extra time.  I have been able to stay home and raise my children.  Feed them healthier food.  Along the way we learned so many skills to help make us more self-sufficient, self-supporting and self-sustaining.

Hope you enjoy making these subway sandwich bread.

1 cup warm water around 110 degrees F.
1 1/2 Tablespoons yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar or leave it out
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons olive oil
3 to 4 cups flour

In your stand mixer or a large bowl add water, yeast, sugar, salt and olive oil.   Stir and let stand 5 minutes.  Add 1 cup of flour and mix with the dough hook for 4 minutes.  Add additional cup of flour and mix until well combined.  Continue adding the flour 1/4 cup at a time, until a soft dough is formed.  The dough should still stick to the bottom of the bowl, but will pull away from the sides.  Let the dough knead for around 7 minutes.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.  Your dough should be soft.  Shape the dough into a ball and place in a bowl which has been sprayed with oil. Cover and let rise for half hour.

Divide dough into 4 equal parts.  Shape each piece of dough into a long skinny loaf that is around 9 to 10 inches long.  Place the rolled loaves onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or baking mat.  Leave at least 2 inches between each loaf.  Cover the loaves and allow to rise until double, around one hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake loves for 25 minutes.

After removing the loaves from the oven take a pastry brush, butter and rub over tops of the bread.  Cool loaves for 30 minutes before splitting down the middle and filling with your favorite sandwich fillings.

  1. Oh my! I looove subway’s bread… Just thinking about it, makes me hungry. Thanks for posting this lovely recipe! 🙂

    1. This recipe makes 4 sandwich rolls, I could only show 3 because one was snatched up before I could take the picture. Thanks for commenting.

  2. I love this! The only reason I don’t eat at subway is because of all the garbage chemicals they put in their bread. Your rolls look perfect.

  3. This is so great. I love homemade bread! You never know what is exactly in their bread so making this at home you are in complete control over the ingredients. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. I loveeeeee Subway. In fact, I plan my whole week’s meals around it. (Because my favorite sub is $6 for a footlong on Tuesdays. So we allllllllllll know that’s where I’m going for lunch on Tuesdays). It’d be good to practice making this bread at home so I wouldn’t have to plan my life around Subway’s schedule, haha! 😉

  5. I love this!! During the summer we do sub nights about once a week (too hot to cook). I will have to try and make some of this bread the night before when it is cool! Thank you so much for sharing

  6. Who doesn’t love Subway’s bread. This is an awesome recipe and I am going to have to try it for sure. The sugar added just make it more better in my opinion. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  7. I love homemade bread. I remember my mom making them and the house just filled up with that lovely aroma. I will try your bread recipe and re-create a subway sandwich. Maybe a meatball sandwich too.

  8. I have been making bread for my family for almost a year now. It is so much better and we could never go back to store bought bread again. Thank you for sharing at Ravenwould.

  9. Any tips on bread that widens when it rises. Instead of being compact and poofy it’s wider and flatter. Same recipe and some additional rising time. Do I need more flour? I used bread flour for the recipe not AP.
