Pullman Bread Pain De Mie
I finally did a bit of research and made a loaf. This makes square shaped slices great for sandwiches. Way better then store bought bread! This makes a dense white bread that holds up well. Slice it after it has cooled, and keep it in the freezer taking out what is needed. This will keep for quite some time if frozen.
If you dont have this pan, you can use a regular bread pan or the bread machine.

The name "Pullman" was derived from its use in the compact kitchens of the Pullman railway cars. The Pullman Company is credited with inventing the lidded baking pans used to create the square loaves. Three Pullman loaves occupied the same space as two standard round-topped loaves, thus maximizing the use of space in the Pullman kitchen.
Lightly grease a 13 x 4-inch pain de mie pan. Transfer the risen dough to a lightly greased work surface, shape it into a 13-inch log, and fit it into the pan. Cover the pan with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise until it's just below the lip of the pan, 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the warmth of your kitchen (it may rise even more slowly in a cool kitchen; don't worry, this long rise will give it great flavor).
Remove the plastic, and carefully place the cover on the pan, let it rest an additional 10 minutes while you preheat your oven to 350°F. Bake the bread for 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, carefully remove the lid, and return the bread to the oven to bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until it tests done. Remove the bread from the oven, and turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool completely.
