Course: Appetizers, Breads
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours
Servings: 24 breadsticks

Ingredients

Breadsticks

  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1/3 cup sugar (you can skip if you want)
  • 1 1/2 T active dry yeast (or instant if that's all you have)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, melted (can sub for avocado or coconut oil)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T salt
  • 1 T dried rosemary
  • 8 1/2 cups bread flour (give or take 1/2 cup, use all purpose flour if that's all you have)
  • 24 wooden kebab sticks, rubbed down with oil

Topping

  • 12 T melted butter
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Combine sugar, warm water, and yeast in a large mixing bowl (or a Bosch mixer is perfect for this recipe).
  • Cover and let stand for 10 minutes while the yeast proofs and dissolves.
  • Add oil, egg, salt, and rosemary into yeast mixture. Mix to combine.
  • Add flour, one cup at a time, mixing well and kneading well in between. How much flour you need depends on lots of variables- you don’t want dough that’s too dry or too sticky. It needs to be elastic and slightly tacky, but not so wet that it sticks to the side of the bowl.
  • Knead for 15 min if using a bosch mixer, or if making by hand knead as long as your shoulders can take it. 💪🏼
  • Cover dough with lid or with a clean dish towel and allow it to rise until doubled, about 60 min. Then punch down.
  • Grease two cookie sheets. On a lightly floured surface, dump out dough and separate into 24 equal portions. Roll each portion into a dough snake, about 12 inches long. Take a wooden skewer and wrap each piece of dough around the skewer, pinching the sides. You should be able to fit 12 skewers on each baking sheet.
  • In a bowl, melt some butter and brush it onto the dough twists. Give it a sprinkle of garlic salt, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese.
  • Allow to rise until doubled, about 45-60 minutes.
  • Bake at 380° F for about 16 minutes.
  • Take the skewers out and serve immediately!
