I made Anita's bread!

This is our favorite french bread that my friend Leslie's mom Anita is famous for. It is yummy and easy!
Mix the following and set aside.
2 Tbls. yeast
3 c. warm water
pinch of sugar
Add to the above:
1/4 c oil
1/8 c sugar
1 T salt
7c flour
Mix well, require some kneading and raise 10-15min. Pinch and turn to shape into three long loaves. Place on greased cookie sheet. Then snip tops and wash with egg white. Sprinkle with poppy or sesame seeds if desired. Raise 20-30min. Bake at 350 25-30 min.

I makes yummy toast too. I do so wish it were gluten free though, I have had terrible luck in that department.
