Success and Good!

In the new Taste of Home Magazine (Oct/Nov 2010) I found this recipe for bread. It's called " everything bread".
1 pkg active dry yeast, 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup warm 2% milk, 1/4 cup softened butter,
2 Tbsp. sugar, 1 egg yolk, 1-1/2 tsp. salt, 4 to 4-1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 egg white, 2 tsp water
2 tsp. coarse sea salt or kosher salt, 1 tsp. each sesame, caraway and poppy seeds.

In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, egg yolk, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 4 minutes. Sit in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
Turn onto floured surface knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 -8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl. turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise until doubled about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Turn into a lightly floured surfaced divide dough into thirds. Shape each into a 20-in. rope. Place ropes on a large greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise until doubled. about 45 minutes.

Combine egg white and water; brush over dough. Combine the salt, onion, and seeds; sprinkle over bread. Bake at 375 for 22-28 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack and cool

I only used the salt and poppy seeds on mine. Its fast and easy to make a sure success for anyone.
