Basic Italian Bread



BASIC BREAD RECIPE
Subway Copycat Recipe

Makes 2 Leaves or 8 Small Rolls

2 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups warm water
1/3 cup soybean oil
6-7 cups all purpose flour, divided
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten

Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup warm water. Let stand for about nine to ten minutes. Combine yeast mixture with oil, salt, and two cups of flour. Stir well. Gradually stir in 4 cups of flour and remaining water.
Knead for 10 minutes, adding additional flour as needed. Place dough in a lightly-greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about one hour.

Punch dough down and divide into eight pieces. Roll each half into loaf-shapes, about twelve inches long.
Place loaves onto two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Cover the eight loaves and allow to rise for about an hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook for 25 minutes, or until the top of the loaves are golden brown. Let the bread cool until room temperature.

VARIATIONS:

  • Honey & Oats Bread  add 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats to the bread dough before rising.
  • Parmesan Oregano Bread mix together Parmesan cheese, oregano, and garlic salt and sprinkling it over the unbaked dough
