Directions:
Dissolve yeast in water. Let sit to activate for about 5 min. It will bubble. Add sugar and salt - stir to dissolve. Add flour and knead with mixer or hands. (Add flour if needed to make dough not sticky.) Knead lots more. Put dough into greased bowl and cover with dish towel and let rise to double. Divide into two parts and shape into long narrow loaves.
Prepare a cookie sheet by greasing it first then sprinkling it with cornmeal. Place loaves onto this.
Let rise till double. About 45 min into the rising preheat oven to 400 and put a sheet cake pan in the bottom of the oven. Put water into sheet
cake pan. This will give the bread a crusty outside.

Brush the loaves with an egg-white glaze and bake 35-40 min. Brush egg white on the loaves again about 5 min. before finished baking.

Cool on wire rack. These freeze well.
