Italian Hero Sandwich Rolls
Fellow bread enthusiasts:
I've never posted before, but recently I've become desparate.
After scouring the net with several search engines, as well as examining my favorite bread sites, I can't find any information on how to recreate those wonderful Italian hero sandwich rolls they have down in NYC. Anyone who has lived there knows what I'm talking about. These are not the lifeless, heavy, soggy things most Americans know as grinders, hoagies, or submarine rolls. What I'm looking for are the hard-crusted, feathery-soft, golden torpedos they use in Italian-style deli's in the boroughs.
Has anyone tried to make these or have any suggestions?
