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.

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!

Do I need to do anything differently without the breadmaker?

Kris said...

Those look SO good! I'm gonna put them on the menu for next week. :)

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

Sarah said...

Oh, and great new family photo!

Cassie said...

These are going on my to make list! Looks yummy!

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!

OH man...nothing like making a gluten free girl salivate!

Theresa said...

hmmmm...I could get behind this idea! I am always looking for easy & cheap, but good stuff to make!

I tried these for dinner (with company) last night and they were wonderful! I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for the delicious recipe. :)

Dawn said...

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?

Sarah said...

Definitely bread flour!

Susan said...

These sound amazing and I will be making these hopefully today to freeze. Thanks!

JillEE said...

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

Sarah said...

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?

Brittany said...

These are super GREAT!!! I knew how wonderful they were when my husband had eaten three before I could serve the rest of dinner.:) Has anyone tried freezing the dough? I would like to know how this turned out for you.

Rita said...

I made these a few nights ago and they were GREAT! Made the two kiddos very happy, so that makes me very happy! Thanks for the recipe!

Janette said...

They are delicious!!

Hannah said...

Where does the brown sugar go??

Christine said...

Yum! I think my family would love these! BTW, I have an old Zoj breadmaker, from the early 90's. That thing is still going strong!
