1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup butter
Heat the above ingredients to 120 - 130 degrees F
5 cups bread flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon yeast (or use one package of yeast, I buy it in jars so would use about a Tablespoon)
2 cups wholewheat flour (about.....I add whole wheat flour to the mixing bowl until it no longer sticks to the sides as it goes around during mixing.
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water. (Whisk together water and egg whites until frothy)
1/2 cup crushed oatmeal flakes
Process. Heat water, butter and honey, pour into mixing bowl (I use the big stand Bosch mixer for breads)
Add flour, oatmeal, salt, and eggs, mix well and add yeast ( I added this last just in case the water mixture is too hot because I left it in the microwave too long, and I don't want to kill the yeast) and lastly add the whole wheat flour, about 2 cups, or until the dough doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl as it is mixing.
Mix for 8 minutes or so on a medium speed.
Grease a large mixing bowl, put dough in bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until double is size.
Punch down and divide into 7 - 1 1/4 inch X 12 inch bread sticks, let rise covered with a clean dish towel.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, Brush egg white / water mixture over dough, sprinkle crushed oatmeal on top.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes
Serve and enjoy with meat, cheese, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, banana peppers, green peppers, black olives, onions, and whatever else you would like on your 'made at home- subway sandwich'
Story; Roger and Ardis called one evening to let us know they would drive over for a visit the next day. Well,we live 15 miles fro. The nearest town, so I looked for a recipe to make sub sandwiches for lunch. Ryan, Stephanie, and the boys were here. Everyone liked how this bread turned out, a keeper recipe.
