French Bread

2½ cups warm water
2 tablespoons yeast
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
7 cups flour

Mix all ingredients and place in greased bowl. Let rise 1 hour until doubled. Shape into two loaves. Place on cookie sheet that has been oiled and sprinkled with corn meal. Make diagonal slits on top. Brush with egg white mixed with cold water. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 20 minutes at 450°. (The new quick rise yeast and the instant mix yeasts are great!)
