I love French bread.  So does Z.  So I went hunting for a recipe.  After trying it out I made a few changes, and this is what I've come up with.  I make 2-3 times a week.

 

You can make this in your bread machine, or by hand.

 

In your machine put in:

 

3 heaping cups of flour

2 tsp of salt

1 pkg of yeast

2 1/4 cups of water

 

Choose the option for dough only (you can bake in your machine, too, but I like the shape of French bread.)

 

 

 

 

 

When the dough is done, turn it out on a floured surface

 

 

 

With your hands, stretch it out into a rectangle shape

 

 

Roll and pinch until you have reached your desired shape (be sure to pinch well)

 

Place on a greased sheet, baking stone, or whatever you would bake artisan breads on

 

Make a few slices in the dough for effect

 

*note, you can also make this into a round bread - I did that the last time and it turned out very well*

 

Let rise one hour

 

 

Bake at 400 until golden brown (about 1/2 or so)
