Why buy frozen bread sticks when you can make your on at home? This recipe is very fast and simple. My husband does not ask for much when it comes to dinner so when he does ask me to make something I like to. I was happy to get the results I did on my very first attempt and they were so amazing, I just wish I could give you all one. Next time, I will come up with a yummy dipping sauce.
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2-1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/4 cups warm water
1 tablespoon sunflower oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon rosemary, dried
1/2 tablespoon parsley, dried
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1. In a large mixing bowl combine half of flour, yeast, sugar and salt; add warm water then sunflower oil; beat on medium speed with electric mixer until smooth, 1 minute. Add Parmesan cheese, garlic, rosemary, parsley, and remaining flour to make dough.
2. Place dough out onto a floured surface or non-stick baking mat, kneading until smooth. Divide dough into 10 portions. Shape each portion into an 8-inch rope then twist.
3. Drizzle olive oil all over bread sticks then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place ropes 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place for one hour. Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake until lightly browned, 15 minutes.
