Heat the milk, butter, and honey in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir and heat for another 45 seconds. Cool liquids down to luke-warm if they're too hot.
Pour the milk mixture into a large bowl or in a heavy-duty mixer. Add the yeast, egg, salt, and enough flour to stir together and make a moderately stiff dough. Knead for about 6 minutes by hand or in a bread mixer.
Generously grease 2 bread pans. If you use the rectangle pans I use, you need to grease with Crisco!
Form dough into 2 loaves and place in pans. Cover with a dishtowel. Let dough rise until doubled.
Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes on the middle rack, until browned on top.
Allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting or putting in a storage bag. Enjoy!
These are too long to fit in a gallon-sized bag without slicing. Keep your old bread bags or grab some online if you want to store whole or give as a gift!
