This is going to be my go-to sub sandwich roll recipe from now on! I did it the lazy way though using my bread machine to do a dough cycle. I halved the recipe and used 4 1/2 cups AP flour with 2 TB olive oil since that's the only oil I had on hand, but loved the taste so I'll make it with olive oil again definitely. After the dough cycle finished, I did the thing with slitting the tops and letting them rise on the pan for another 20 minutes covered in paper towels. (I'm ghetto.) I also wanted a little variation, so I put sesame seeds on one roll, poppy seeds on another, and garlic granules on another...you can put nearly anything on the tops for variety really. I baked them for 15 minutes at 400F, perfection!
