I have been working so hard to get some more Mom Simplicity Documents done that I completely forgot to post this FANTASTIC recipe yesterday. My whole family LOVES them. (Even my very picky eater!) My 5 year old, aka Big B, said they are AMAZING!!!
1 tablespoon dry yeast
1 1/2 cups lukewarm Ingredients
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup oil
4 cups flour
1/4 cup butter, melted (1 tsp. garlic salt may be added depending on variation used)
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1 cup of water with sugar. Let stand 5 minutes.
Add all ingredients (salt, oil, flour) except the butter.
Stir into dough and knead until smooth and elastic and slightly sticky.
Place dough in greased bowl, cover and let rise until double, about 1 hour.
Punch down dough and then roll out into a 12 x 18 inch rectangle on a floured surface.
Brush with melted butter.
Cut dough in half vertically, and then cut horizontally into 8 strips (16 bread sticks from one half of dough).
**Spray pans or use parchment paper and cover lightly while rising.
**Let bread sticks rise 30 minutes before baking.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes at 350° or until lightly browned.
2 Optional variations I like to make:
Cheesy Bread Sticks: Press buttered side down of breadstick in freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Twist bread stick multiple times and lay out on parchment lined cookie sheets. (I do about 8 to a pan-parchment necessary so the cheese won’t stick to the pan). Cover and let rise 30 minutes or until double in bulk and then bake. After baking, brush with remaining melted garlic butter.
Garlic Butter Bread Sticks: Twist bread sticks that have already been spread with garlic butter mixture. Place on greased baking sheet and let rise 30 minutes. After baking, brush again with melted garlic butter.
