French Bread

Another recipe for my bread machine. I have a French cycle on mine that gives this a nice crust, or you can use the dough cycle. Then shape the bread, allow to rise 20 minutes in a warm place, and bake in a 350 degree oven until golden (about 25-30 minutes).

French Bread

1 cup warm water
2 tsp sugar (or honey)
1 tsp salt
3 cups bread flour (you can slightly healthify this by using 1.5 cups bread flour & 1.5 cup whole wheat flour)
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp yeast

Add to bread pan in order specified by the manufacturer.

NOTE: You can also add 2 Tbsp ground flax meal to increase the nutrition.
