    These are time consuming but so good! Especially if you aren't close to a good bakery. They make excellent sourdough rolls for sandwiches like french dip.

      WOW great bread. Made them into 7 small baguettes, just like I was looking for. Going to use them for baked egg boats. Didn't need to put them under the broiler as mine were beautiful when they came out of the oven. Loved how easy the dough was to work with.

      Made this last night and you are soooo right it's the "ULTIMATE" Baguettes. I made them exactly as directed using poppy seeds as thats our favorite and slashing the rolls just before they went into the oven. The rose wonderful into nice shapes, the outside was that great crusty crunch you want on them with a soft, light texture inside. I got 8 good sized baguettes out of them and everyone went back for seconds. Thanks homegirl for a recipe that will be used again and again. I'll be back later to post a picture once I get it downloaded.

      I made this last week and it was great. Very tasty and good crust. It was a little too chewy so I will cut the gluten in half next time. I made 2 long loaves and 3 rolls. I put poppy seeds on one loaf and caraway seeds on the other (favorite) and sesame seeds on the rolls.
