These homemade sub rolls are great for hot dogs, subs and even garlic bread!

Summer is here and it’s time for grilling! Why not give these homemade  sub rolls a try! These rolls are soft on the inside and not too hard on the outside.  Making them at home is so much better than the store-bought rolls!

I am not an accomplished bread maker by any stretch of the imagination. But, these aren’t difficult to make and you can impress everyone with your baking skills! This recipe makes 8 rolls. You can also freeze these rolls for later.
