A tutorial on how to shape free standing loaves or hoagie rolls also called batards.
First start with your risen dough.
This you will cut into pieces of the desired size for your finished product. I am making Italian bread and it makes 2-1 pound loaves. Sometimes I make 3 smaller loaves so they fit on my baking stone better. Cut into even smaller pieces this makes great hoagie buns.
Now you have a free standing loaf or batard. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for the second time, score and bake. The process is the same for hoagie rolls just smaller. Now go and make some bread. Enjoy.
