These breadsticks are so divine. They go perfectly with soups, pasta, etc. My neighbor makes these and I have been dying to get her recipe for awhile now. As wonderful as they taste, I thought they would be hard to make but they're surprisingly simple. I wish I had thought to take a better picture to really showcase these. You're just going to have to take my word, every neighbor in my neighborhood's word, as well as my family's word that they're wonderful. :)
1 1/2 cups water
1 Tbsp SAF yeast
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
Additional 1 1/2 cups flour
Lawry's Garlic Salt (course ground with parsley)
In a mixer (bosch or bread machine), add water then yeast. Pour sugar over top. Then add salt and 2 cups flour. Mix until smooth. Then add an additional 1 1/2 cups flour. Mix and knead.
Roll out on lightly floured/greased surface depending on the stickiness of your dough. Cut dough into long strips. Melt 1 cube of butter and pour onto cookie sheet. Dip strip in butter. Fold in half (long-wise) and twist into a twisty breadstick. Place on cookie sheet and repeat with remaining strips. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and garlic salt over breadsticks.
Let rise until double in size. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Serve warm with desired meal.
