Add butter and egg and 1.5 cups all-purpose flour and 1.5 cups whole wheat flour. Add salt.

Punch down dough and remove from bowl.
Shape into two loaves and place in a greased loaf pans.
Cover and allow dough to rise until doubled again.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brush tops with melted butter.
Turn onto a floured board; knead about 10 turns. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake for about 30 minutes or so.
