Subway Inspired Italian Herb And Cheese Bread

  • Author: Mortadella Head
  • Total Time: 290
  • Yield: 3 - 4 bread rolls 1x



4 + 1/6 cups bread flour (500 g)

11 fl oz water (325 ml)

2 + 1/2 tsp salt (15 g)

1 + 1/3 tsp active dry yeast

1/2 tsp sugar

2 tbsp garlic powder

2 tbsp Italian seasoning

1 tbsp grated parmesan

1 tbsp shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Put water in a small ball and add the sugar and active dry yeast. Let them dissolve for 10 minutes.
  2. Add flour to the stand mixer bowl. Activate the dough hook at slow speed and gradually add the water. Then, turn the speed to medium-low and let the machine work for another 9 minutes. Halfway through the process, add the salt.
  3. Place dough on a floured working surface and fold it a few times with your hands. Then put it in a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, and let it rise for 2 hours.
  4. Put the dough back onto the working surface and fold it again to give it strenght. Then divide it in 3 or 4 loaves.
  5. Place loaves on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, cover them with a kitchen towel, and let them rise for another 2 hours in a warm place.
  6. Top the loaves with the herbs, garlic powder, and the cheese mixture. Pat them gently to let the dough incorporate the other ingredients a bit.
  7. Bake at 450° F in static mode for 20 minutes. Then check to see the state of the crust and, if necessary, keep baking for another 5 minutes.
  8. Take the bread rolls out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
  9. Enjoy them with your favorite filling.


For best results, place an oven-compatible pan full with water on the lower half of the oven. The steam of the water will prevent the bread crust from drying up too soon.
