Recipe looks good, I tried it tonight. I'm pretty new at all this, so here's what I did:

Combine all ingredients and mix for 5 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes (autolyse?). Knead by hand another 10 minutes until gluten is developed (windowpane test). Ferment until doubled (about an hour), then divide in two and rest for 15 minutes, then shape loaves and proof in pan for another hour until dough is above top of pan. Bake 35-45 minutes at 375. Optionally, score the top and brush with melted butter. My slices in the top didn't come out as nicely as the original, I think I needed to cut more at an angle and less straight down.

I think your scores look nice!  And see Floyd's loaf--you don't even need to score this type of loaf and they look nice that way too.

 

So, how did they taste?  :)

They were awesome, I think this is a great recipe. This is the first loaf I've made that could be mistaken for store bought sandwich bread. I might make it without the egg next time and see how that affects it.
