Ingredients

Bread Dough

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons loose yeast
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 2 3/4 - 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Topping

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Breadsticks

  • In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Sprinkle sugar on top. Let the yeast rest 10-15 minutes or until the yeast starts to bubble and grow. If the yeast does not grow, start over with different yeast.
  • Add the salt, vegetable oil, garlic, onion and Italian Seasoning to the yeast. Stir to combine. I mix this recipe by hand, but you could use an electric mixer, if you prefer.
  • Gradually add the flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough is formed and no longer sticky.
  • Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. This step usually takes 10-15 minutes.
  • Lightly spray wax paper with cooking spray then cover the dough with the wax paper. Let rest for 45 minutes to one hour. The dough will almost double in size.
  • Lightly grease one or two baking sheets with cooking spray. Set aside. I need two baking sheets to fit all of the breadsticks.
  • Roll the dough into a 10x12-inch rectangle that is about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into ten 12-inch sticks then cut the sticks in half. You will have 20 5-inch sticks.
  • Place the breadsticks about 1/2-inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Cover the breadsticks with wax paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rest about 10-15 minutes. I preheat my oven while the breadsticks are resting.
  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the breadsticks are lightly browned. If you like a crunchier crust, bake the breadsticks a little longer.

Topping

  • Melt the butter in a small bowl.
  • Add the garlic, onion, Italian Seasoning, Parsley and salt then stir to combine.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the butter mixture over the hot breadsticks.
  • Serve warm.
