The Best Breadsticks

My family loves bread! Of course homemade is so much yummier and healthier! I came across this recipe about two weeks ago, and I think I have made it four times already. It is that good and very easy. This bread is so good that I’ve even used it as the crust for pizza.

Breadsticks

1 cup warm water
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups bread flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pkg active dry yeast

Stir all dry ingredients together. Add warm water (you want the water to be warm to your skin, but not hot) and olive oil and mix until it forms a ball. Knead until smooth (around 5 minutes) adding additional flour if it is too sticky. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes. Divide into 24 pieces and roll into 4-6 inch ropes. (This is a great job for kids if they enjoy helping in the kitchen. They don’t have to do it perfectly and it can make for fun memories.) Place on either a greased cookie sheet, or a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. (I like to use the parchment paper as it makes for easy clean-up.) Let rise for another 20 minutes. While it is rising, warm oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

I have brushed these with olive oil and salted them before baking and have also left them plain. Either way, they are delicious! My husband and daughter are always excited when they smell these baking and always end up asking for more. 🙂
