Does anyone know the recipe for the italian bread and the wheat bread Subway or Blimpie uses
OK Vernon, you’re halfway there. The actual quantities and recipe is very elusive, but I did stumble upon the ingredients for all of their breads. Some of it reads like the back of a tube of toothpaste, but it does tell you pretty much all you need to know, including how to make the various “flavored” breads they serve. My advice to you if you are looking for the soft type bread they have, is to go with the wheat. I have found wheat bread much easier to work with, and it seems to come out softer as well. The other thing you will want to remember is that Subway proofs their bread, I would imagine around 80 degrees or so. If you want a softer bread pick your favorite recipe, and use the ingredients following in the amounts listed in your recipe. Also, if a recipe calls for basting the tops of the loaves with water, DO NOT do it. This creates a crisp shell on the bread, which is not what I believe you’re looking for. Hope this helps!

Thank you for that quantity list it will be of great help.
Now what I will need to do is get someone with baking experince to make it into a recipe so I can go to the store and buy the ingredients.
When you say proofing what is meant by this
Here is a link to explain to you how to proof bread. I believe that Subway uses a convection (forced hot air) oven, and this may also have an affect on it. I would recommend using a bread machine to mix the dough if you have one. It’s easier, and cuts down the risk of overworking the dough, which can be caused by too much kneading in combination with the excess oil from your hands. I’ll keep an eye out for a decent bread recipe and see if I can’t reverse engineer this for you.
Thank you very much.
I really appreciate your help
