Our Favorite Breadsticks

John said this is his "favorite" breadstick and my kids were all super excited about these as well. I loaded on the garlic, but we all loved it!
John's Rating: 9Recipe from: Favorite Family Recipes

1½ cups warm water

2 Tbsp. sugar

1 Tbsp. yeast


Let that sit for 5 minutes. Then add:

3½ cups flour

1 tsp Salt


Mix until smooth then let raise for 40 minutes. Roll out dough into a large square on a floured surface. Brush with melted (real) butter mixed with garlic (I think I used 6-8 cloves, finely chopped) and then sprinkle with kosher salt. Fold in half and cut into 1 inch strips. Twist and place on a cooking sheet. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes to raise. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately after baking, brush with more garlic butter and sprinkle with kosher salt and grated parmesan cheese.

Serve with marinara, alfredo sauce, or ranch for dipping.


*Dough also makes a great pizza dough, just roll out into a large circle, add your favorite toppings, and bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
