I have been making bread for a very long time and have a good selection of recipes. However, I'm having great difficulty attempting to make Sub buns (Hoagie roll, hot dog buns etc.).
I get a very good quality bun but its just too large. We end up eating more bread than what is inside the bun. I would like to make a bun that is smaller but large enough to hold the ingredients that make up a sub. My recipe to make 4 rolls; 400gm flour, 185ml water + 1 whole egg (The liquid ratio with these ingredients is approximately 58%-59%), 19gm butter (5% of flour weight), 1tsp salt & 2tsp dried yeast that I activate before using.
The rolls turn out very nicely but they are just too large. Is there a method where I can make the rolls smaller but long enough to be used as sub buns? If I cut back on the ingredients I'm afraid I might end up with a small flatted roll that can't be used.
Any assistance form the form would be greatly appreciated.
