Quick Sub Sandwich Buns

When I came on to post today, I found this gem in my drafts.  I thought I posted it last summer, but apparently, I never got around to it.  Since we are in the middle of winter, maybe a glimpse of the greenery in the background will get your spirits up!  The world will be green again soon! ;)


1 c. warm water
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 c. flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine water, yeast, sugar, and oil.
Mix well then let rest 10 minutes.  (Mixture should get foamy/bubbly.)
Stir in half of the flour, then add the salt.
Stir in remaining flour until soft dough forms.
Knead until dough becomes smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
Turn over in a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let rise 30-40 minutes.
Shape into desired size rolls and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Let rise at least 15 minutes.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until buns are golden brown.
(Baking time will vary depending on the size of the buns you are making.)

{These buns reminded me a little of the Jimmy John's sub buns.  They are soft, yet dense, in the center with a chewy (but not crispy) crust.}
