  1. Combine cracked wheat, millet and 4 cups boiling water.
  2. Let simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.
  3. Cool to lukewarm.
  4. Stir in yeast until dissolved
  5. Stir in walnuts, oats, cornmeal, milk powder, wheat germ and 2 teaspoons salt.
  6. Stir in flour to make a moderately stiff dough.
  7. Knead for 6 - 8 minutes.
  8. Place dough into greased bowl, cover, let rise for about 1 hour - until doubled in size.
  9. Punch down, knead several times.
  10. Divide in half. Shape into two loaves.
  11. Place into 2 greased loaf pans.
  12. Make slashes across top of each loaf.
  13. Cover & let rise until doubled in size again - approximately 20 - 30 minutes
  14. Optional: Combine egg white with water and brush tops of loaves before baking.
  15. Bake in 375 degree oven for 40 - 45 minutes
  16. Remove from pans & let cool
  17. Enjoy!!!
  18. **Additional notes: I mix this in my bread machine - just make 1/2 the recipe at a time. I use instant yeast - so only needs to rise once, and layer the ingredients as follows: yeast, sweetener, flour and other dry ingredients, water mixture and oil. It works beautifully, and ends up being half the work. I shape the dough into a loaf and bake in a conventional oven - I'm not sure how it would bake in the bread machine.
