  • Subway uses a combination of Monterey Jack, cheddar cheese, and parmesan cheese in the topping for their Subway Italian Herbs and Cheese Bread. Experiment by using your own favorite cheeses, Asiago cheese would be a tasty complement to the Italian herbs, as would Pecorino-Romano.
  • If you do not have sunflower oil on hand, you can substitute soybean oil, vegetable oil, or olive oil as the binding agent for the cheese topping.
  • This recipe can be made using a bread machine, simply add all of the ingredients for the bread to your bread machine and cook on a light setting. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions about adding toppings before the final bake cycle.
  • This recipe makes eight individual rolls, but can be adapted to make two or three larger loaves of bread. Adjust the cook time accordingly to account for the larger size.
