  • In large mixing bowl combine warm water, sugar and yeast.
  • Let stand about 5 minutes till very bubbly.
  • With wire whisk add the rest with only 1 cup of the flour, beating to smooth dough.
  • Beat in rest of flour till batter is thick and sticky but smooth, all flour being dissolved Divide dough between 5 oven-proof, Pam-sprayed, cornmeal dusted (let excess shake out) soup bowls (each 5" in diameter).
  • OR FOR MORE authentic shape divide batter equally between 5 greased cans from 1-1/2 lb Dinty Moore Stew, insides also dusted in cornmeal.
  • Cover each one in a square of Saran wrap sprayed in a bit of Pam and that side down.
  • Let raise almost an hour or till above rim of bowls or cans.
  • Discard Saran pieces.
  • Bake on center rack of 375~ oven about 20 minutes or till golden brown.
  • Let cool in containers on rack, spraying tops each in a bit of Pam while they cool to keep crusts soft.
  • TO USE FOR SANDWICHES-slice in half horizontally and grill on lightly buttered hot griddle as you would for grilled cheese sandwich or broiler toast till golden.
  • Spread garlic dressing over both sides of bun.
  • Sprinkle parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese on bottom bun.
  • Spread mustard and mozzarella cheese on top bun.

    Does anyone know what (if any) changes I'd need to make to substitute almond flour for the AP?

    If you've been to Schlotzsky's and you're looking for a copycat recipe... THIS IS IT!! My family LOVES this recipe! I found that WIlton cake decorating makes a set of 5 shallow pans that work perfect to make the buns! and I use the Olive Garden salad dressing that comes in a bottle from the grocery store as my ceasar dressing to brush the buns with. We paired it with Honey Dijon Kettle chips for the closest to the real thing!

    Made the bread using a sourdough starter and yeast. It was scary because it wasn't dough; it was batter. I was sure it was too watery! When I took it out of the oven, it was still wet inside. The cooling period is critical. I used glass pie pans to hold in heat when baking and cooling.

    This recipe was PERFECT! It was a bit tedious to follow "how to build the sandwich", but certainly worth the effort. I did use BREAD flour, not just regular flour. Results were fabulous. Not sure if bread flour should be indicated in recipe or not...just a thought.


I'm disable now for a couple years. I was in sales for 25 years and was a policeman for 5 years before that and just floated around a few years before that. I've been married to the same gal for 30 years, got two sons and two grandchildren. I got into the recipe seen and have got hooked on it, I'm not a cook but I'm learning as I go. Enjoy reading the different recipes.
