Deli Style Sub Buns


A couple nights ago I came home from work and all we had for dinner was fettuccine and pesto sauce and I decide we needed some buns to go with it. Jess was working late and I had a couple hours to get this off the ground. These ended up making the house smell like a bakery and were perfect soft buns that made you crave more. I slathered them in butter with the pasta, then we made some BLT subs the following day. The toppings are what make these so perfect with garlic pickles, bacon, mustard and all the other deli fixins you can put on them. Jess said they were better than "Keg Bread".


Ingredients:
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1 tbsp dry active yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • Poppy seeds, sesame seeds, minced onion
  • 1 cup of cheese

Directions:
 
  1. In a stand mixer throw in the flour, butter, salt and cheese.
  2. In a separate bowl add the warm water, sugar then add the yeast. After 10 min it should double.
  3. Add the yeast to the other ingredients and mix on a low setting for around 10 min. 
  4. After it looks consistent put it in a mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap and a cloth. Let rise for about an hour.
  5. Once it doubles in size, punch it down and divide into six balls. Roll the balls into logs (about an inch thick and six inches long) and put on a baking sheet.  Let them double in size again.
  6.  Wipe them with a little egg wash and top with the poppy, sesame, and onion.
  7.  Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
  8. Bake for 20-25 mins or until they are a nice brown color on top. Put them on a wire rack to cool then make your favourite sandwich.
