A convection oven is even faster. The key is an ever so slight crunch on the outside and completely soft inside.
Hrm. I don't live in that area. I just asked my friends on The Fresh Loaf what the best homemade bread would be for a Philly Cheesesteak sammich. I'll find out, bake a loaf, make the sandwich.. then share with ya all later with photos.
