I found a couple different recipes for the bread (and there are lots of other copycat recipes out there for the other types of Subway bread), but I ended up using a version of this recipe.
SUBWAY ITALIAN HERB & CHEESE BREAD
1 tbsp. yeast
1 tbsp. honey
1 c. hot water
3 c. flour + 1 tbsp. whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. salt (I used Epicure's Herb & Garlic Sea Salt, coarse)
1 tbsp. Epicure's Tomato & Parmesan Cheeseball Seasoning
grated cheddar cheese (just enough to sprinkle over each loaf)
Combine yeast, honey and water and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Combine flour, butter, and salt in a bowl and form a well. Pour yeast mixture in and knead until smooth. Cover and let rise until doubled in size (approx. 1 hour). Punch down and cover and rise again. Cut into 3 pieces and shape into loaves or rolls. Cover and let rise. Score each loaf a few times with a serrated knife. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with herbs & cheese. Bake at 425 F for 20-25 minutes with a dish of water in the oven to help create some steam.
My husband and daughter I love the Subway Southwest Chipotle Sauce, but I think it's probably safe to say that a homemade version of it would be a little healthier. There were lots of websites with a copycat version, but I switched up the ingredients ever-so-slightly to accomodate what was in my pantry, and here's what I came up with:
SUBWAY SOUTHWEST CHIPOTLE SAUCE
1/2 c. mayo
1 1/2 tsp. lime or lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. honey mustard
Epicure's Chiptole Chili (start with a little, then add more till it tastes right - this stuff is hot so watch out!)
1/2 garlic clove, minced
Whisk all the ingredients together and refrigerate.
Here's how the sandwich turned out:
I laid out the veggies, cheese, and meat on a plate and let the kids make their own subs, so everyone was very pleased with their personalized subs. Another successful supper in Kathy's Kitchen!
