Perfect French Bread

I have tried a couple French bread recipes but never have turned up anything easy enough that is tasty. Then I made all this cannellini bean dip and I needed bread! I didn’t want to go to the store so I went hunting for a recipe. And I found this.

So easy. I’ve already made this recipe several times! It is so delicious and the texture is just right. The crust isn’t too tough or crunchy and it toasts up nicely into crustini!

It really is easy and worth a try. The recipe asks you to throw water on the floor of the oven to create steam. I wasn’t comfortable doing this so I placed a cookie sheet on the bottom on the oven and got the same results!

Pretty sure you should try this. It is really perfect! Perfect for the Thanksgiving table. I’m just saying . . . 🙂

    Elizabeth, I don’t know how you find all the energy to do all you do, be a mom, and then make homemade bread! I am truly in awe! I hope I can do half the stuff you do……I’m going to blame it on being about 5 years older than you! 🙂

      Long baby naps! And bread is actually pretty great for doing while hanging with Jude since it has a fairly short hands on time because most of the time involved is rising!

      And you’re going to be a great mom Charlotte! I’ve alway thought that! 🙂
