This Crusty French Bread Recipe is the perfect compliment to this recipe:


1 cup warm water
1 package yeast-(rapid-rise recommended)
3/4 tsp salt (or to taste) 
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


In a large bowl, combine water with yeast and salt. Let sit for five minutes. Stir in flour until the dough is stiff enough to knead. (Add flour a little at a time.) Knead dough until smooth and elastic–a few minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl; cover. Let rise until doubled. Form dough into a French-style loaf and place on greased baking sheet. (Dust baking sheet with cornmeal first if desired.) Place immediately in oven (unpreheated!)–bread will rise as oven heats up. Set oven at 375-degrees. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
