French Bread

{J'adore le pain, or I love bread!}
I could just eat bread all day long, but then of course, I'd weight a million pounds.
2 pkg dry yeast (2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup warm water                          {for proofing}
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups hot water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
5 tablespoons oil
6 cups flour
1 egg white; sesame seeds (optional)

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup water with 1 tablespoon sugar. In large bowl combine hot water, sugar, oil, salt and half of the flour. Mix. Add yeast mixture when all bubbly. Mix in remaining flour. Keep in bow and let rise 10 minutes. Mix again and then let rise for another 10 minutes. Repeat 5 times. Once all that is done, take it out of the bowl, and divide into two, and roll out on counter into a rectangle shape. Roll up and put on cookie sheet. Slice 3 times over the top. 

Take egg white and beat. Brush on dough and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Let rise 30 minutes. Bake 25 Minutes at 400 F or until golden brown.
O l'amour!
