Homemade Breadsticks

By: Michaela Brown

Don’t you just love the work “homemade”? Especially when it is a bread of some sort. Homemade Breadsticks are relatively quick to prepare. Mix it up and then let it rise while you prepare something else. They are a great homemade touch to any meal!

  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 package ( ¼ oz.) quick-rise yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 3 to 3 ¼ cups all purpose flour, divided
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Coarse salt

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a saucepan, heat milk, sugar, salt and butter. Cool to lukewarm.

Step 2

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Combine milk mixture, yeast mixture and 1-1/2 cups flour; beating until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.

Step 3

Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes..

Step 4

Punch dough down. Pinch off golf ball size pieces; roll into pencil-size strips. Place on greased baking sheets 1 inch apart. Cover and let rise 15 minutes

Step 5

Combine egg white and water; brush over sticks. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake at 400°for 10 minutes or until golden.
