Anyone ever bake Clayton's French Bread with beaten egg whites?

August 31, 2010 - 2:37pm -- BellesAZ

Tonight I'm making a nice lemon chicken picatta and I thought I'd do a quick Italian bread.  I dusted off my Bernard Clayton New Complete Book of Breads, just because I haven't opened it in so long and thought I could find a quick recipe within it.  Instead, I became fixated on a recipe for French Bread made with beaten egg whites.  I was curious - French bread made with egg whites?  It didn't call for an overnight ferment, although it certainly could have had one, I suppose, but it fit the bill.. looked easy enough and was quick.
