We can't eat our favorite spaghetti without our favorite breadsticks.  These are really easy to make and my kids can't get enough of them!


1 Tbsp. yeast
1 ½ cups warm water
2 Tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
3+ cups flour
½ cup butter
garlic salt
parmesan cheese

In mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water, add sugar. Let sit 5 minutes. Add salt and 3 cups flour. Knead 3 minutes while adding more flour to get a workable consistency. Melt butter, and pour half into 9x13 pan. Roll or shape dough into a rectangle, and cut into ½ inch slices. Place in pan and brush with the remaining melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. Let rise 30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.

note:  I like the results much better when I make these in my bread mixer instead of kneading by hand.  I also use a pizza cutter to cut the strips right on my countertop.  Before I had granite countertops, I just shaped them on a large cutting board.

you forgot to tell anyone who reads this how OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD-YUMMY these breadsticks are!! Especially just out of the oven. I have never failed to get compliments galore on these when I have taken them to a meal.
PS-my bread had not one crumb left by the time dinner was over! I am making it again today, but 1 1/2 times the loaf, to see what would happen (and so that we would have more to eat :-J )

You'll have to let me know if that works out with the bread. I guess one way to make it better is to have more of it, right?!

My second attempt, baking at 1 1/2 times worked just as well - BETTER, in fact, because there was some left over and it was just as good toasted the next day. Bob loved it with peanut butter and honey! Now I have to try some of those variations . . .
