Bread Sticks


Soft, chewy, buttery breadsticks are a hit at this house, and something easy, cheap and filling to make for the evenings we have friends over and a snack is necessary.

I put these ingredients in my breadmaker (I have a Zojirushi Breadmaker):

1 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil
3 cups of bread flour
1 tsp. salt
3 TBS brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Once the dough cycle is finished, I roll the dough onto a 10 x 12 lightly buttered cookie sheet.
Using a pizza cutter, I cut the bread sticks into 24 pieces.
Let rise for about an hour.

Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes.

When breadsticks come out of oven, I drizzle this mixture on top:
4 TBS melted butter
1/2 tsp garlic salt

Then I sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

  1. Yum! I will adapt the directions a bit, as I have no bread maker, sigh. Sounds like a good rainy day snack for today. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Nothing like a warm breadstick. Makes me want to go to Olive Garden, and I haven't been there in about 15 years :)

  7. W/O a bread maker: The bread maker basically mixes the dough, then kneads it, then lets it rise, (the whole process takes about 90 minutes) and then I get it out, shape it, and let it rise again. I hope that helps!

  11. Can't wait to try these with my lemon pepper chicken tomorrow night! Can I use regular flour or does it need to be bread flour?

  16. Do you freeze the dough or the prepared breadstick? If the dough, do you let it rise first?

  17. I have never tried freezing the dough or breadsticks, but I think freezing the dough would work best, and then letting it thaw in the fridge for a couple days, then taking it out and letting it rise?
