"This dough is an absolute pleasure to work with, it makes the best sub buns but of coarse you can use this dough for whatever you like, this dough also freezes well after the first rise and the baked buns also freeze well --- I like to add in 1 teaspoon malt powder to the flour mixture but that is only optional, it works with the yeast to improve flavor and texture of the dough and also improves the flavor somewhat."

"Fabulous as usual Kitten! Decreased the sugar, increased the salt a touch and added some garlic to the dough! Thanks for the amazing bread! I have been craving some good kaiser rolls! ~*~*~*~*~Update~*~*~*~*~ A friend of mine used to work at Subway and she said that their bread comes in frozen and the way they "flavor" it is by brushing water on the dough and sprinkling with seasonings. I tried that with this dough and I got the same results! I am using this same recipe to mini meatball subs - cutting the bread into "bun size" pieces and using KittenCal's AMAZING meatball recipe. They are a definite hit at work!!!"
"Very good! I made some substitutions, I used half and half whole wheat flour and white flour, also used oil instead of Crisco (I'm not a big fan of Trans fats) Silk Soy milk instead of the full fat milk. even with all the changes the buns turned out beautifully, definitely a do again"
"These are great! I used half whole wheat bread flour and also had to mix in a little extra (white) flour when kneading. I cut mine into 10 pieces and they were perfect for a sandwich."
"We like subs and have them a lot at my house. My DW made these for me and they were so good! We made ours a little longer than the ones posted because we bring our subs to work and I need a 12" roll to fill me up! This recipe will be worn and tattered in no time as often as we make them. Wife put the recipe in her recipe box for safe keeping. Thanks so much for sharing Kitten! Don"
"Wow Kittencal, another winning bread recipe. The instructions were so concise and easy to follow and the buns tasted wonderful. I forgot to try the malt powder (and I'd bought it special for this) but I can't imagine it turning out any better. I made them to fill with my crab-cheese spread and they are perfect. I was so proud of them and DH gave the biggest compiment when he rated them TEN stars. Thanks again."
"Did not change a thing, these buns are perfect!!!"
"I also used my ABM, wet ingredients, then dry, dough cycle and baked in the oven in baguette pans. Wonderful!"
"Phenomenal bread! Made brisket sandwiches from this tonight and it's heavenly. Easy to work with and shape, and bakes up beautifully. I kept the 3 T sugar, even tho the instructions up the amount, and I thought it was good. Kneaded with the KitchenAid, and the times were spot on. I didn't have malt powder, but didn't miss it since I haven't used it before. Firm on the crust and soft and perfect inside. A keeper recipe again from Kittencal."
"I do not have a bread machine, did it all by hand. They are awesome!!!!!! Everyone loved them."
"Fantastic! I made these exactly by the recipe, but formed the dough into 12 round rolls instead of 6 oval buns. The sandwiches disappeared in a flash and everyone commented on the bread. Thanks, Kittencal!"
"Great buns. They are soft on the inside and have an excellent crust. I made half the recipe and made 4 perfect sized rolls. I used half rye flour and they turnd out great."
"Such an easy dough to work with and I will be using this recipe often, as we often bring sandwiches to work and these are perfect! Thanks!"
"These are excellent. I cut down the sugar to one tablespoon and put the wet and then the dry ingredients into my bread maker. After 90 minutes on the dough cycle I added a little bit more flour, formed the dough into long rolls and let them rise for another 30 minutes. We enjoyed them this morning for breakfast. A foolproof recipe. Thanks for sharing it!"
"I used whole wheat flour instead of white and they came out really good! We had them with Recipe #227311 and wow, what a sandwich! These rolls would be great to serve along with spaghetti or lasagna too, or with any entree for that matter. Just open em up and sprinkle on some garlic powder, salt and spread with butter, then bake for a few minutes in the oven, then munga!"
"These were easy and tasted very good. I used them as the bread shell for recipe 254611. Thanks for the recipe"
"Outstanding recipe. DH and I love SOFT sandwich rolls and these fit the bill. Made as directed with my Kitchenaid mixer. I got 8 generous sized buns out of the recipe. Thanks for sharing."
"The dough is a dream to work with. I might use the dough for cinnamom buns by adding more sugar. These came out so nice and soft. Delish. I made 8 sub sandwich buns and they were the perfect size. I don't find these too sweet as stated by others. If anything, they are a bit too salty. I would reduce the salt to 1 teaspoon the next time and there will be the next time."
"These were easy to make and soft and tasty but I think they are too sweet to make a sandwich on.... trying to think of a way to make a dessert out of them! Plain with butter very good! I would reduce the sugar next time. I have some in my freezer to try later..."
"Too cold and wet to run out for sandwich buns, I made these instead. I had to use what was on hand, so butter flavoured crisco and last 1/2 cup of flour was whole wheat, and skim milk instead of whole. They turned out perfectly. I cut into eight portions, and they were a little bit bigger than a typical kaiser type roll. Light and airy. Very easy, very good. I might decrease the sugar slightly next time for sandwiches, but would definitely use as is for dinner rolls (just make more, smaller rolls). Excellent all around."
"Great sub/sandwich roll recipe! I used our leftover bun for garlic cheese bread, and it was fabulous! The dough is so supple, and the finished product is slightly sweet - delish!"
