I cannot even tell you how many times I have made this recipe. It is sooooo good warm right out of the oven. I might have posted this before. It comes out soooo much better than the breads that come out of my bread machine!

   

French Bread

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp. yeast
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
5 1/2 cups flour
1 egg white (or 2 Tbsp olive oil)

Directions
Preheat oven to 450*F.

In a large bowl, mix warm water and yeast until yeast has dissolved.  Next add sugar, salt and flour. Knead ingredients together till it’s a soft uniform dough.

Now place a thin towel over the bowl with the dough in it and let it rise in a warm place for 15-30 minutes.

Seperate dough into two, and begin shaping dough into long loaves, and place on a baking sheet.

Make slits with a knife and brush with egg white or olive oil. If you are garnishing with herbs or cheese, do so now.

Cover the dough with the towel once more and let rise 5 minutes or so (the longer the better).

Remove towel, and bake for 12-15 minutes or until tops are brown and crusty.

I love french bread. Yours looks delicious. I came across one on Pinterest not too long ago for a cheesy garlic bread and I made that. It was pretty yummy. I've tried quite a few. Yours will probably be next :)

Grocery store.....cake mix aisle. Comes in packets or a jar. I started off with packets (3 packets is about 3 times making bread) and now make breads so much that i buy jars.
