     French Bread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None


In a large mixing bowl dissolve 2 Tbsp yeast in 3 cups warm water. Add 2 Tbsp sugar and 3 tsp salt. Mix in 4 cups flour until smooth, then 2 cups, then 1 cup, and then 1/2 cup. (Or substitute 2 cups ground whole wheat flour.) Knead. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise until double. Divide dough in half (dough will be stiff) and roll into long rectangle. Fold up sides and pinch together. Put both pieces of dough onto a greased cookie sheet and cut slits with knife (approximately 1-inch deep) every 2-3 inches. Let rise. Brush with egg white, if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
Can make garlic bread, if desired.
