With the exception of gluten, eggs are probably the most important building block when it comes to baked goods.  Although we never really think about the eggs within our bread recipes; they are added to bread dough for richness, taste and color.  They also help to slow the staling of bread, keeping it edible a little longer.Country Bread for Mellow Bakers (almost live blogging) - Part 2

As egg and gluten is heated, it coagulates.  The process generally begins around 140 -150 degrees.  The changes to the egg as it is heated are noticeable.

As the coagulation accelerates, molecules begin to bond creating a structure rigid in nature that helps with the size and final shape of baked goods.
