The Best Breadsticks



Here is the recipe, makes about a dozen:

3/4 c. Warm (105-115 degrees) water-I like mine on the warmer side.
1 1/2 t. Sugar
1 1/2 t. Yeast
1/4 t. Salt
1 1/2 C. All-Purpose Flour (you many need more depending on how absorbent your flour is)

Seasoning:
2 t. Kosher Salt
2 T. Garlic powder
2 t. Oregano

I use my stand mixer for this, with the whisk attachment.
1. Combine water, sugar, yeast and 1/4 C of the flour. Whisk on medium speed for about 30-60 seconds. Let stand 5 minutes or until the yeast is good and bubbly

*switch to dough hook*

2. Stir in the salt, and in the rest of the flour a quarter cup at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

3. Grease a large bowl and place dough inside. Cover and allow to rise until doubled in bulk-about 45 minutes.

4. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out into a large rectangle. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Make them as reasonably thick or thin as you like. I like mine on the thin side.

5. Twist each strip and place on a prepared baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise another 30 minutes. Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes.

6. Butter the tops and sprinkle on the seasoning mix (I just keep the extra in a little storage container). There is something about the butter and kosher salt that makes these irresistible. Enjoy.
