5 teaspoons dry active yeast (2 pkgs)
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups of water luke warm
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons salt
6 or 7 cups all- purpose flour
1 egg white
Let the sugar and salt melt in water, then add yeast.
Melt butter and, stir into yeast mixture. You can substitute vegetable oil.
Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached, until it got to a texture that you liked. The dough should be a bit sticky when you touch.
Knead well, that is the key. Knead for about 10 min.
Cover with plastic wrap and let stand until doubled. (approx an hour).
It doubled in size.
Lightly dust a small amount of corn meal over well-greased pans. Roll your dough into long, thin oval shape and place about 3" apart on the pans. To give it nice hoggie buns looks, slash each loaf every inch and a half with a knife, brush with egg white, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Let it sit again to rise for about 30 min.
Bake in a 400°F oven until golden brown. I will say 20 min, but it varies depends on your oven. Make sure it is golden brown, if you look at the bottom of the hoagie and it is getting darker. You can broil it.When you broil, stand and watch, don't walk away for a second. You will burn it, I know this from experience:-)
