Makes excellent sandwich bread.

  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  • 1/4 scoop yellow cornmeal
  • cooking spray
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  1. Place mixing paddle in bread machine pan. Add ingredients except cornmeal and egg white to bread machine in the order listed, making a well in the center of the dry ingredients and placing the yeast within (do not allow yeast to touch liquid). Place pan in machine until it snaps into place and close lid. Press the ''''select'''' button on control panel repeatedly until the arrow aligns with the setting marked ''''dough'''' and press ''''start'''' When the cycle has 30 minutes left to completion, preheat oven to 375F and place large cookie sheet on top of stove.
  2. Spray sheet liberally with garlic-flavored cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with cornmeal. On clean and dried cutting board sprinkle about 1/8 cup of flour (until lightly coated).
  3. When the machine beeps transfer dough to board and sprinkle flour as needed.
  4. Do NOT add too much.
  5. The dough should not be coated with flour.
  6. Turn dough over (you can flour hands if necessary) Pat dough to a rough rectangle then turn over and roll out to neat rectangle, (about) 8"x15" with rolling pin.
  7. Make sure the dough does not stick by sprinkling dough or board lightly with additional flour.
  8. Again, do not add too much or the bread will be hard. Roll dough from the long side in, making the roll as even as possible.
  9. Pinch all ends in to seal, rolling dough to make even. Transfer carefully to prepared cookie sheet.
  10. Spray with garlic-flavored cooking spray and cover with towel.
  11. Let rise for 20 minutes. Separate egg and store yolk in refrigerator.
  12. Add 1 tablespoon of water to egg white and beat lightly until frothy.
  13. Move sheet with dough to cutting board and remove towel.
