Saucy Sunday-Bread Sticks

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.

Bread Sticks

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

  1. Thanks Becky – I’ve been searching for a great breadstick recipe. Ive come close a couple of times, but nothing that I’d really want to make again. I’m gonna give these a try, they look great!

  2. These sound delicious….I am on some days off now, so I might have a go at making them! There isn’t even any tricky ‘American’ ingredients to stump me in this recipe! lol
