      I ended up making this to go with my Navy Bean Soup. It turned out great, but I had to knead it by hand for about 15 or 20 minutes instead of using the mixer because it just kept overtaking the dough hook. I didn't mind though, I love getting my hands in dough, it feels amazing. Very nice, crispy crust, soft insides. I used Rapid Rise yeast and it cut my rising time by about half. Thanks for sharing!!
