I popped out of bed this morning, and got walloped with this "gotta-make-bread-again" feeling. Before you knew it I had flour all over the place. After a 3 hour first rise, and a 30 minute second rise I formed the loaves. Misted a tad, covered with a towel. 90 more minutes to cooking time. Thanks Mary for the tips about slashing the top just before egging. Also I followed some other advice (was it C~W) which said to stir the yeast into the warm water with a toothpick dipped in honey. Man, them little critters went berzerk!![p]Thanks everyone for all the tips. As a non-breadmaker, I have been able to achieve great results quickly, and I find myself on a frenzied mission. You could say my brain's yeasties are in full swing. If I can do it, anyone can be egging bread in no time. The third time seems like a lot less of a hassle when working with this strange stuff they call dough.[p]I think this bread stuff has become my most pleasant suprise so far with the egg. And there have been lots of suprises. Alright, maybe a good brisket ranks up there, but bread is right there with it.[p]Got my mojo risin.

    Nature Boy,[p]How 'bout this for the best of both worlds.[p]Take a piece of that french bread and cut it lengthwise in half. Then, take some of that BBQ brisket with some good sauce and put it on top of one half of that bread. Take the other half of the french bread and put it on top of the BBQ. Kinda like a sammich. Enjoy, bread sounds awesome.[p]Troy
