I forgot to take a picture of the WHOLE sandwhich so I had to take one of Luke's half eaten one! Sorry about that! They were just SOOOO good..who remembers to take a picture of such a goodlooking, mouthwatering, sandwhich? This flat bread is actually really easy once you get the hang of it. Give it a try! The only thing i reccomend is reheating it (like they do at Subway) before using! I did that in my toaster oven on bake at 350*, but the microwave would work just fine too.
1 c warm water
1 pkg (1 T) yeast
1/4 c sugar
3 T milk
1 t salt
3-5 cups flour
1/4-1/2 c butter
In mixing bowl sprinkle yeast over water. Add sugar and let sit til frothy. Beat egg and add to yeast water along with milk and salt. Stir in half of the flour until mixture is creamy. Mix in enough flour to form a soft dough. Knead 6-8 minutes. In warm place, let dough raise until doubled (45-60 minutes). Punch down and divide 6-12 balls (depending on desired size of bread. 6 balls should do 6 approximately 6in x 6in pieces (maybe bigger)-pefect for sandwiches like Subway. Twelve would do about 12 3-inch rounds-this would be good if you are just serving the flat bread with soup.)Let balls rest for 15 minutes. Heat grill pan (this makes fun grill marks on the bread, but I'm guessing a frying pan or griddle would work well aslo) over high heat. Punch down then roll out 1 of the rolls of dough. Roll it to about 1/2 centemeter (almost 1/4 inch thick.) I've shown a ruler to help those of you who might be challenged in the area of depth measurement!
Remember, that's 1/4 of the inch side, or 1/2 of the centemeter side. These will expand a little while cooking so make sure they aren't TOO thick. But if they are too thin they will come out more like cracker bread than the doughy yummy flatbread we're all wanting! After you've got one rolled out turn the heat down to LOW for the grill pan. Melt 1/4 cup butter and add onion salt and garlic salt to taste. Brush over rolled out dough. The picture shown here was one of my first "tries" which was rolled out too thin. I wanted to just show you a picture to show how I don't make sure it's a perfect square. Also, I found it super easy to roll it out on my stone pizza pan with my pastry roller (which you can barely see in the corner of the picture) instead of a big rolling pin.
Next, lay it face down in the grill pan and cook (for me, it took about 2-3 minutes on low-2 setting. But watch it carefully!) I do not reccomend using the top part of a grill pan for these. It will bubble on the top side as shown in this picture.
If desired butter the uncooked side and flip over.
It may seem a little doughy when you take it out of the pan-and you will just have to experiment with your stove and your pan to see where perfection lies. For me, it looked a little doughy but turns out it wasn't doughy at all when we ate it. I really super hope someone out there tries this and loves it as much as I did! When I get my southwestern sauce perfected I promise to share that too! One of these days I'm gonna have the upper hand on Subway...one of these days...
