Quick and Easy Breadsticks

Quick and Easy Breadsticks
  • Pinterest

This is one of my very best recipes. These breadsticks can be made from scratch in about 40 minutes, from start to finish. They are light and delicious with any kind of Italian dish, or with soup. This recipe makes one cookie sheet, or about 36 small 2×5 inch breadsticks. It works great in a Kitchen Aid. If you are going to use a Bosch you’ll need to double the recipe.
Let me show you how to make it happen…
 


1. Mix the water, sugar and yeast together in a measuring cup or in the bottom of your mixer. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

2. Add the salt and the flour, one cup at a time, until it is well incorporated. Mix on high for 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

3. Melt the butter and pour half of it into a jelly roll pan (large cookie sheet).

4. Place the dough in the center of the pan. Let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes. Letting the dough rest makes it MUCH easier to shape.

5. Spread the dough out flat onto the pan until it reaches all of the edges. Doing all of the spreading and cutting of these bread sticks, in the pan makes cleaning up your counter so much easier!

6. Pour the other half of the butter onto the dough. Spread it around with your hands. Sprinkle the Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning all over the dough, and then the Parmesan cheese.

7. With a pizza cutter cut the dough into three rows lengthwise, and then into about 12 little height wise rows.

8. Put the pan into a 170 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes. The breadsticks should rise about 1 inch.
9. Turn you oven up to 350 and bake for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

10. When they come out of the oven let them sit and rest again for about 5 minutes. Then redefine your cutting lines with the pizza cutter.

11. I use a pair of cooking scissors to cut the edges where the pizza cutter can’t reach.
These Quick and Easy Breadsticks go wonderfully with 
Fabulous Red Pizza Sauce. You can put it together in a jiffy. 

That’s it! They are wonderful. I have played around with a variety of things that can be put on the top. I will post those recipes in the days to come!  Johnny’s Garlic Spread seasoning is one in a million. I buy it at Costco, and keep several in my long term food storage. It’s really great to have on hand. ENJOY!

    Hi! Thanks for the recipe. Please feel free to call me an idiot, but I just made these and mistook 1 tablespoon of yeast, sugar for a teaspoon. So yah, they didn’t turn out. Maybe consider a different font? It was really hard to read.

    These were well-received in my house. Thank you for the recipe. I was working with organic yeast, so it took longer than instructed for each rise time. I ended up using about 4 1/2 cups flour total to get it from sticking to the bowl. I had to do the 170 degree rise for 20 minutes, and ended up baking the sticks for 25 minutes after turning the oven to 350 and starting the timer. It took about 2 1/2 hours altogether from start to finish for me. I served them with pasta and alfredo sauce. Everyone was pleased with the dinner. 🙂

    These turned out excellent. Very quick and easy to make and taste great. I didn’t have the garlic spread so just mixed a large crushed clove of fresh garlic in with the 2nd half of the butter
    One thing I was unsure of is after being in the oven at 170 for 10 minutes do I take them out of the oven while oven warms to 350? I did not and they took about 10 minutes longer to cook
