Prep Time 15 minutes mins

Cook Time 25 minutes mins

Rest 2 hours hrs 30 minutes mins

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ teaspoon Active dry yeast 1 packet
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 ½ cups Warm water
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 3 ½ to 4 cups All purpose flour adjust as needed
  • Oil to coat the bowl

Instructions

Activate the yeast

  • In a bowl, add warm water and sugar and mix well. Now sprinkle the yeast.

    2 ¼ teaspoon Active dry yeast, 1 teaspoon Sugar, 1 ½ cups Warm water

  • Cover it and leave it undisturbed for 5 - 10 minutes. Let the yeast activate.

Make and knead the dough

  • Add flour little by little and salt. Mix well using a dough hook of a stand mixer or wooden spoon to form a dough.

    1 ½ teaspoon Salt, 3 ½ to 4 cups All purpose flour

  • Dust the working surface. Transfer the dough and knead it for 6 - 8 minutes till you get a soft and smooth dough.

  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl.

    Oil

  • Cover the bowl and keep the dough in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Shape the dough into sandwich rolls

  • Transfer the risen dough to the working surface. Pat to form a thick rectangle and cut them into four, five, or six equal portions, depending on how big you want your sandwich rolls.

  • Shape each portion into balls and cover it with a warm towel. Let it rest for 15 minutes.

  • Place the parchment paper on a baking sheet or grease the tray with some oil and keep it ready.

  • Flatten each ball to form an approx 6 x 4-inch rectangle. Roll the 6-inch side of the flattened dough from one end to the other to form a cylinder. Roll the dough from the center - moving towards the ends, applying some extra pressure at the ends to get a pointed tip. (This is optional; if you do not apply extra pressure as you roll to the ends you will get long cylindrical subs, which is totally fine)

  • Transfer this to the baking tray and repeat the process for the other three balls. Do not overcrowd the baking pan.

  • Cover it with a warm towel and let it rest for 1 hour or until it is doubled in size.

Bake the best sandwich rolls

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the bowl of water in an oven-safe bowl on the bottom rack. This is done to get a good amount of moisture in the oven and a nice crust to the rolls.

  • Using the sharp knife or blade, score one end of each roll and then spray each roll lightly with water.

  • Bake in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes or until it is golden brown. Spray the rolls lightly with water halfway through the baking time.

  • Allow the bread rolls to cool down for 10 minutes.

  • Serve and enjoy.

Notes

  • I have made four sandwich rolls that were 9 - 10 inches long. Depending on the desired size of the rolls, divide the dough accordingly. If you do not like oval shapes, make it a cylindrical subway-style sandwich bread or French baguette.
  • The flour in the dough may vary depending on the weather conditions. However, see that you do not add more flour than required, as this may make your bread very dry and dense.
  • During winter, for warmer temperatures, preheat the oven to 150 degrees F, switch it off, and then rest the dough in the oven.
  • If the dough becomes sticky, dust your palms with flour while shaping the rolls.
  • Shape the rolls to the desired length and thickness.

Best homemade sandwich bread rolls

The best part about making bread rolls at home is that you not only know the ingredients that go in but can also bake the bread in different shapes and sizes. Homemade ones are so tasty that you will never buy from the store again.

You can make simple grilled cheese sandwiches to deli-style sandwiches packed with meat or with your favorite fillings and toppings. These sandwich bread rolls are so tasty that you can serve them warm with butter, like baguettes, with a bowl of soup or warm pasta.

Ingredients

These bread rolls are made using basic kitchen ingredients like yeast, salt, sugar, flour, and warm water.
