    Love Subway sandwiches? I do. Those freshly baked long bread loaves and filled the stuffing looks just too good to eat. However, I just hate the stuffing squeezing out and the sauces sticking to the sides of your lips. In the end, you are left with only the bread and the stuffing and sauces are gone.

    Ok, here is the ironical thing. My kid generally does not eat vegetables, but when it is a subway sandwich, he finishes everything in a jiffy. And this lets me think, why not make subway style sandwiches for him for his tiffin.

    But what about the messy part of the subway sandwich and that too in the school. The pita bread sandwich that I made partially solves the problem, but I needed a more robust solution.

    A foodie child and an experimental baker mom is certainly a deadly combination. I had to give a subway sandwich to my child in his tiffin but only after fixing the problem. I have different types of breakfast rolls recipes on my blog but this was supposed to be different. My stuffed dinner rolls and stuffed vada pav recipe were my inspiration.

    What if, if I put all the stuffing in the dough while shaping and then bake? Prepared the dough, cooked the stuffing, shaped the rolls, and baked. Sounds easy, you bet. Messy part gone, serve them in your child tiffin.

    Let’s prepare the dough for savory breakfast rolls

    Let’s start with kneading.

    For savory breakfast roll dough, I have used the combination of wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and unroasted durum semolina. In the market, you will find three varieties of durum semolina viz. regular, medium and small. For this breakfast bread rolls, I have used small semolina. Small semolina is also known as “Chiroti Rava” or “Bansi Rava” or “Khaja”.

    The ratio of these flours is mentioned in the ingredient list below.

    For those who want to know the complete kneading process, must read my basic dough recipe.

    For breakfast bread dough, take approx 50ml of lukewarm water and mix sugar and yeast in it. The water used here is part of the total water mentioned in the recipe ingredient list. Let the yeast mixture rest for 5 minutes and it should froth, else replace yeast.

    In a kneading bowl add flours, salt, and garlic powder. Add activated yeast solution to it and start kneading the dough by adding water little at a time. For me, the total water amount consumed was 270 ml (including water used for yeast). This amount can vary in your case based upon the quality of flour you are going to use and weather conditions. What we need is a soft and little sticky dough, hence add water accordingly.

    Once you bind all the ingredients, take the dough out on a lightly dusted surface. Add one tablespoon of oil to it and start kneading until you get a smooth, non-sticky and elastic dough. It will roughly take 5-7 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a kitchen towel. Place it any warm and dry place until it doubles in volume.

    Stuffing for breakfast roll recipe

    While our dough is kept for the first rise, let’s prepare the stuffing. All the ingredients for stuffing are given in the ingredient list below with exact measurements. Keep all the ingredients handy.

    For stuffing, heat a pan. Add oil, onions, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add all the chopped vegetables and dry spices. Sauté for 2 min and switch off the flame. Transfer the prepared stuffing to a bowl and let it come to room temperature.

    Breakfast Roll Stuffing

    Once the dough is double in volume, punch it to release the air. While punching, try to be gentle with the dough and little force can impact the gluten structure. After punching, do not knead the dough. Gently fold it and take it out on a lightly floured surface.

    Dough for Breakfast Rolls

    Divide the dough into six equal portions. Roll each portion in oval shape as shown in the picture. The thickness should be ½ inch.

    Keep the prepared stuffing the center (lengthwise). If you love cheese, then you can add grated cheese with the prepared stuffing as well.

    Breakfast Rolls Shaping

    Take a baking tray lined with parchment paper of aluminum foil. Place all the shaped and stuffed rolls on the baking tray and cover with kitchen towel. Let these rolls rest for minimum 30 minutes before baking.

    Meanwhile, keep the oven for preheating at 200 °C. Many people ask me about which oven to buy. Read my article on the best oven to buy in India and help yourself.

    Let’s bake our Savory breakfast rolls

    After 30 minutes of resting, brush the rolls with milk and sprinkle mixed herbs. Bake these rolls in the preheated oven at 200 °C for 20 minutes. Baking time can vary oven to oven. So bake the rolls until you get golden brown color on the crust.

    Raw Breakfast Roll

    When baked, take the tray out from oven and brush the rolls with melted butter. It will not only give glaze to the roll but also help to soften the crust.

    Transfer the baked breakfast rolls to a cooling rack. Allow them to rest for 10 minutes and then serve with your choice of sauce or dip.

    Baked Breakfast Roll

    I don’t prefer any dip or sauce with these stuffed breakfast rolls. I just need a cup of ginger tea along with these rolls and no one around J . Since the day I have started baking these rolls at my place, now these are like “Must bake” thing once in a week at my home.

    1. Dear Sonia,

      Can we add gluten pwdr? If yes, then how much.
      Also, to fold the buns, we have to cover n seal from both sides…..like we do it for sandwich loaf

    2. Hi
      M so keen on trying these rolls. They look so yummy. The only thing I wanted to know is how to bake them. I mean baking with both rods heated or only the bottom rod on.
      Thank you

    3. Hi Sonia,

      Your recipes are very well written and I admire you for the details provided. I was so skeptical in following recipes from Indian blogs due to inadequate instructions since I had tried few bread recipes and failed. I had a notion that only Westerners provide detailed recipes with elaborate information. I am happy I found your blog. Keep up the work and God bless you!

      • Hello Diana,
        Every word of your message has filled me with enormous energy and positivity. Nothing is more fulfilling than to know that the work you do is liked by people. I thank you for making my day and I ensure that I will continue to better myself in all aspects.
        Thanks for reading my blog
        Cheers!
        Sonia

    4. Hi Sonia, I love your blog with the eggless baking.
      I am in North America, have a cooking range with oven. I am comfortable using the big oven for regular baking rather than the OTG.
      My oven is Fahrenheit, I wanted to know I should preheat and bake at 400 F for 20 minutes.
      Thank you.
