I’m a self proclaimed bread addict. Have been for a while. No intentions to change. Every meal deserves a nice bread to accompany it, here is a fantastic, easy, melt-in-your-mouth breadstick. 1 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil
3 cups of bread flour
1 tsp. salt
3 TBS brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
Proof your yeast with the water and 1 TBS of brown sugar. Let set for 7-10 minutes (until activated). In a mixer combine yeast mixture with flour (reserve 1/2 cup until you see the dough needs more flour), salt, and remaining 2 TBS of brown sugar. Mix until dough it is a soft texture, I always tend to mix by hand at the very end because its easier to tell whether it’s in need of more flour.
Let rise for an hour to an hour and a half in a greased bowl, until doubled in size. Once rising is complete, I roll the dough onto a 10 x 12 lightly buttered cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Using a pizza cutter, I cut the bread sticks into pieces and let rise for another hour. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes. After baking is complete, brush breadsticks with a mixture of melted butter and garlic salt (or a garlic spread seasoning.)
Go ahead. Try it. You will like them.
