2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
 5 - 5½ cups bread flour

Preheat oven to 375°. Dissolve yeast and sugar  in warm water (110°) in large bowl; allow yeast to proof or foam (about 10 minutes). Add
 oil and 3 cups flour; beat for 2 minutes. Stir in 2 cups flour and salt to make a stiff dough. Place in oiled bowl, turn dough to coat all sides,
cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and divide in half. Shape
dough into two long slender loaves. Grease a large cookie sheet. Place loaves  on the pan and cut diagonal gashes on top of each loaf (I use scissors). Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake for about 30 minutes. Note: You can sprinkle
or spray water on the loaves during baking if you want a really
crunchy crust
