Hi I'm just printing this now and plan a couple of changes! 1) two eggs and four tablespoons or 1/4 c milk mix well and split! 2) put the first half in the activated yeast prior to adding the flour and salt mixture! ...This will give the bread loaf a good chance of seeing the second day and still be a "simple pleasure"! 3) when the oven is preheated (if you like the crusty in French Bread) take a 1/4 c warm tap water no more... throw it at your oven walls and hurry place bread in center shelf close the door! Steam is key! French bread ovens have steam injectors which do this so nice. a small metal bowl with a cup of water can also be inserted prior preheating . try and see! Enjoy drl
The texture was moist on inside and crunchy outside. - it was excellent. Recipe was easy but time consuming because of waiting for dough to rise. I used bread flour instead of all purpose. I'd recommend when you get to the 5th cup of flower, add it a little at a time just dough can be handled, otherwise the bread will come out too dry. I ended using about 4 3/4 cups of flower total. I'd also recommend cooking at the minimum time - you can always add more time if need be since all ovens vary. Mine took about 26 minutes.
Excellent. i followed the recipe and it came out great. This was the first time I made french bread and it came out great. My finicky 16 year old said it was awesome and I only get "awesome" ratings if they're "for real".
This bread recipe is great. The only thing I changed is that I used 2 tsp instant yeast instead of the packaged yeast.
This recipe is certainly worth trying. I was very impressed at the light, fluffy texture of the bread with the chewy, buttery crust. This recipe I have used to make my cinnamon raisin bread, just by adding the extra ingredients. Everyone loves it!

It was a beautiful day and Dad offered to take over dinner. He found a manly recipe for Mustard & Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops and made a plan.
Freshly sliced from the deli, Land O Lakes® 4 Cheese Italian Blend combines the rich flavors of Asiago, Romano and Parmesan with creamy American to bring the authentic taste of Italy to your American fare.
After you make the hamburger patties and light the grill, what do you get out of the fridge?
Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
