Easy French Bread

We love French bread. You can do so many things with it, you can use it as
pizza crust, french toast,
toasted with PB & J, cheese sandwich or any sandwich for that matter, garlic bread, cheesy garlic toast and our favorite hot from the oven with butter. 


This recipe is great to start before you begin preparing dinner and can serve it fresh 
from the oven when dinner starts.

2 tbsp SAF yeast
2 1/2 cups hot water
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
5 tbsp vegetable oil
6 cups flour
1 egg white
Sesame seeds (optional)
In mixer bowl, mix 4 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Add hot water (I get it as hot as my tap will get) and oil.  Mix until smooth.  Scrape sides.  Stir in remaining flour and mix well.
Leave in mixing bowl, let rest 10 minutes. Turn mixer on to stir down dough, about 30 seconds.  Let rest again for 10 minutes, stir down,  repeat 3 more times. Turn dough out onto floured board.  Knead until lightly coated with flour.  Divide dough in half .  Flatten and  form each half into a  9″ X 13″ rectangle and roll tightly lengthwise , seal edges and place seam edge down on greased baking sheet.  
Brush with beaten egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  
Gash diagonally  3 times with sharp knife. 
 Cover and let raise until doubled, 20-30 minutes.  
Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes
It is great made up as rolls too.
Make a couple of loaves for your next family dinner.
