Freezer bread dough

2 1/2 c Unbleached flour
2 pk Dry yeast
2 c Skim milk
3 tb Margarine — melted
1/3 c Granulated sugar
2 ts Salt
2 Egg whites — whipped
5 1/2 c Unbleached flour

In a mixing bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups flour and yeast. In a
saucepan, heat milk, margarine, sugar, and salt just until warm
(115 to 120 degrees), stirring constantly until margarine almost
melts. Add liquid to dry ingredients in mixing bowl along with egg
whites. Beat at low speed for 1/2 minute, scraping sides of bowl
constantly. Beat 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining flour
as you can mix in with a spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured
surface. Knead in enough flour to make a stiff dough that is
smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Divide dough into thirds.
Shape each of 2 portions into loaves. Store in freezer container
with a double thickness of waxed paper between. Divide remaining
dough into 16 balls. Arrange balls 1″ apart in a freezer container.
