Bread Sticks

When I made the recipe coming up for the next Your Recipe, My Kitchen, I had to have bread sticks.  I didn't realize I needed bread sticks, though, until I was in the homestretch for fixing the meal.  I had to have them within an hour.  Luckily, this recipe fit the requirements.  Five minutes to mix, ten minutes to rise, twenty minutes for a second rise and twenty more minutes to bake = delicious, soft, herby bread sticks.
I doubled the recipe to feed my family, so that is definitely an option if you need more than nine bread sticks.

Herbed Bread Sticks (adapted from Taste of Home)
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup water warm water
2 Tbsp oil
1 1/2 tsp honey or agave syrup
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Parmesan cheese, shredded
Italian seasoning
Salt
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, yeast and salt.  Combine the water, oil and honey and add to the flour mixture.  Mix in the remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Knead five minutes.  Cover and let rise ten minutes.  Roll into a 9X9 square.  Cut into nine strips, twist and lay on a greased cookie sheet.  Brush with butter, sprinkle with cheese and Italian seasoning and salt and let rise another 20 minutes (covered loosely).   Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Oh Kristen! I'm "no carbing it" for the month of January, so I'm actually salivating right now! What I would give for a breadstick...

Love the timeliness of this one! Breadsticks are welcome at nearly every meal, but I always forget to plan ahead. Thanks for this one! I have a feeling it will become a regular in our rotation!

Lisa said...

Yum, what lovely breadsticks. My family just loves homemade bread and I'm thinking I'd rather have these instead of the garlic bread we usually eat with spaghetti.

Better than boring ol' garlic bread. Thanks for sharing!
