Cheesy French Bread

2 TB yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 TB sugar
1 TB oil
1 TB salt
6 - 71/2 cups flour
Garlic salt
Onion powder
Cheddar cheese
1 egg white
1 TB water

Mix first 5 ingredients. Add 4 cups of flour and mix. Add enough flour to make stiff dough. Mix well. Cover and lest rest 15 minutes. Knead for 5 minutes. Let rise until doubled. Divide dough into half. Roll out, sprinkle with garlic salt, onion powder, and cheese. Roll up to thin loaf, pinch ends and put on pan. IF you want the other 1/2 of dough to be normal french bread, shape into long thin loaf and place on greased baking sheet (without the seasonings). Cut diagonal slits 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart on tops of loaves. Whisk egg white and water. Brush on tops and sides of loaves. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, or tunil loaves are golden brown.
