whole grain, multi-grain herb and cheese mini sub bread rolls


Who doesn’t love a good sub! Being from Western NY and no people not western NYC, Western NY Like Buffalo, Rochester area, yeah way over here, subs are a staple! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, yup we eat them all the time! So, when I started my journey to lose weight and eat clean I developed this super awesome healthy multi-grain bread recipe. I have modified it to  create mini sub (sandwich) rolls, topped with garlic, herbs and cheese! Even the pickest eater will love these clean eating bread rolls!

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of wheat germ
  • 3 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of rye flour
  • 1 cup of  whole wheat pastry flour

Add the milk, water and yeast to the bowl in your stand mixer and allow to sit for 5 mins. Attach the wisk attachment and beat in the 2 eggs, wheat germ and 2 cups of the whole wheat flour for 5 mins. Remove the wisk attachment and add the dough hook; add remaining 1 cup of whole wheat flour, turn on stand mixer to start kneading.  Add the rye and whole wheat pastry flour 1 cup at a time slowly as the stand mixer is on and dough hook is kneading.  Allow to knead until a soft dough is formed , not sticky. You want your dough to be soft and elastic, not firm and tough. Let rise until doubled in size.


Punch down and knead on a well greased counter top. Cut into 10 equal pieces, shap into a ball


Take each dough ball and flatten out and roll up to make a long, rectangle.


Place on well greased cookie sheet, allow to rise until doubled. Once they rose bake for 20 mins on 375. While they are baking combine the topping.

  • 1/4 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon of parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese


When the rolls are done brush with melted butter or extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle mixture all over the tops, add as much or as little as you’d like. Place back in the oven for an additional 10 mins.


Serving size 1 roll, serves 10. Feel free to add whatever cheese you’d like.

Tasty, heart healthy, clean multi-grain bread, mini sub rolls, recipe! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do. Comments, questions or concerns drop them below. Smile, you’re beautiful!

6 Comments on whole grain, multi-grain herb and cheese mini sub bread rolls

  1. These look great! Just wondering if the sugar is meant to go with teh yeast in the dough mix rather than with the cheese and herbs in the topping? I’ve just made garlic bread for tea today – will give these a whirl next week! We don’t eat much bread but when we do it has to taste good!

    • The sugar is meant to be mixed with the herbs and cheese. I just love how a slight bit of sweetness mixed with garlic and herbs taste. I do not usually add sugar to bread dough as I feel we already get enough sugars in our diet, but if I do it is always just a little bit. Thank you and let me know how these turn out for you!

  2. Looks delicious. I recently bought a breadmaker and have started making bread at home. I know some people believe it’s not the same as doing it all from hand but I honestly don’t see the difference. Your bread looks really soft and I like the size. I will try your recipe. Thanks for posting.

    • It is very soft and you can adjust the size to your preference. I only make them that size because my kids always want something different on their sub. Thank you and enjoy!

  3. Looking at this recipe makes my mouth water. I will be trying this out once I’ve bought the appropriate ingredients. I don’t have a mixer though, will it take too much longer to do the whole process by hand?
    I have never made my own bread but used a bread maker for years but this has given me the impetus to have a go.
    I’ve just had a look at your other bread recipes and those cranberry muffins are a must try as well. Thanks for your efforts. Ches

    • thank you. Yes, doing it by hand will take longer and tire you out, unfortunately. That is why I love my mixer so much, but if you have the time and patience you most certainly can create this recipe by hand.
