I'd like to be able to make sub sandwiches at home with homemade bread.

Is it possible to make Subway (the sandwich chain) rolls at home? What is their recipe? Do they use special pans/ovens?

Here is what I could find.

  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2/3 cup parmesan cheese, freshly
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast


  1. Mix parmesan into flour.
  2. Add ingredients in order suggested by your bread machine.
  3. Make a well in the center and add yeast.
  4. Bake on French setting, medium crust. Makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf.

Honey Oat


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup liquid honey
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oat
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cold water
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oat


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine water, honey and butter.
  2. Heat over low heat until liquids are warm (120 F to 130 F.) DO NOT BOIL.
  3. In a large bowl or a bread mixing machine, add 5 cups of flour, cooking oats, salt and yeast; mix to blend.
  4. Gradually mix in warm liquids and mix until liquids are absorbed.
  5. Add eggs and mix for about 3 minutes until all ingredients are well mixed together.
  6. Remove dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead in the remaining 1/2 cup of flour.
  7. Knead for about 5 minutes until dough is nice and smooth.
  8. Roll dough into a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl, turning to grease the top.
  9. Cover and let rise in a warm area until dough is doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. 10.Punch dough down and divide into 8 equal pieces.
  10. Roll dough out into the shape of a log, about 12 inches long and about 1 1/4 inches round.
  11. Place dough log buns on 2 large cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, (4 on each sheet)and spaced.
  12. Cover and let rise in a warm area until doubled in size, about 1 hour. 14.Preheat oven to 375?F.
  13. In a small bowl, combine cold water and egg white and whisk until frothy.

This comes from working at a Subway like 17 years ago, I don't know if things have changed...

All Subway franchises receive their bread as frozen dough sticks. They place it in a "proofer" (a warm, humid environment) for about an hour which defrosts the dough and lets it rise. Then it goes in the oven for like 20 minutes. The pans are normal baking sheets with a wavy silicon mold.

I do not know of a recipe however...
