Hoagie buns

My 15-year-old son and I seem to have come to the conclusion that the height of great cuisine is the humble submarine sandwich. My wife not so much, but she tolerates us anyway.  The bread that best meets my exacting standards is good old Subway Italian or wheat. Can anyone point me to a recipe that mimics the soft, stretchy characteristics of the Subway breads? Preferably a sourdough. Thanks for any responses.

Best,

Tom

You could try this recipe which was featured on the front page for a while.  If you want to include sourdough, you could try dmsnyder's version of Peter Reinhart's Italian bread formula which is apparently perfect for hoagies.  David used sourdough in the preferment instead of mixing up a yeast biga.
