We love bread sticks and everytime we go out for pizza, bread sticks are a must.
So I decided to learn to make my own.
And these are just perfect.
Soft on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside.
So I’m sharing the recipe with you.
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 pkg. (1/4 oz) quick rise yeast
2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup warm water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 teaspoons garlic powder
1/4 teaspoons paprika
Optional Italian seasoning or grated Parmesan cheese
Combine sugar, 3/4 teaspoon salt, yeast and 2 cups flour, mix well. While mixing gradually add warm water and oil in a steady stream. Continue mixing for one minute or until smooth and elastic adding one to two tablespoons of water of flour, if needed.
Turn onto a floured surface. Roll into a 15″ X 12″ rectangle. Cut into 12″ strips. Fold each stip in half lengthwise, twist each strip several times. Pinch ends to seal. Place 2″ apart on a greased baking sheet.
In small bowl, combine butter, garlic powder, paprika and remaining salt, and brush over dough. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and/or Parmesan cheese, if desired. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 25 minutes.
Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with remaining butter mixture and serve.
Yield: One dozen
