This recipe is out of the book that came with my Hamilton Beach bread machine. The outer crust is crunchy like french bread from the store and it makes wonderful sandwiches. My favorite would have to be thin cut pastrami with provolone, lightly toasted. Sometimes I add sliced dill pickles or olives after toasting. Yum!

I think it goes well with Tortellini and Ham, One Pan Alfredo and I’ve even used it with Italian Pork Sandwiches instead of hard rolls.

Cut thick and use to make French bread pizza!

  1. 1 1/2 lb. Loaf
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 1 oz envelope dry onion soup mix
  4. 3 1/2 cups flour
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

  6. 2 lb. Loaf
  7. 1 1/2 cups water
  8. 1 oz envelope dry onion soup mix
  9. 4 1/2 cups flour
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  1. Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine for French bread.
  1. The original recipe called for 2 teaspoons of yeast for the 1 1/2 pound loaf, which seemed odd considering the 2 pound loaf only calls for 1 1/2. I only use 1 1/2 teaspoons and it turns out well for me. If you have problems with it rising, try upping the yeast to 2 teaspoons.
