Bread Sticks ~ thick and chewy

You will need

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg yolk (save the whites to brush the bread sticks with before baking)

In one bowl add 1/2 your flour, add Yeast and Salt  mix well and set aside.  In another bowl ( I used my kitchen aid) add water, oil, sugar and egg yolk, mix a few times then slowly add in the flour, yeast and salt mixture.  Once it is well blended stir in the rest of the flour.  If you use a kitchen aid make sure you have your dough hook on and mix till stiff dough is smooth and elastic…. if not mix by hand, knead on a floured surface 6-8 minutes.

Cover bowl, and place in a warm spot to rise, till it has doubled in size.  Normally takes about an hour.  Punch down dough to get the air out, and turn out on a floured surface.

Have your little helpers roll out 8-10 bread sticks….  OR if you like them a little thinner and crisp make 16 thinner bread sticks.

Place on a greased baking sheet, and cover.  Once again  they need to rise in a warm spot.  I normally let them rise in the oven, that is just warm (NOT HEATED)  Let them rise for an hour, or till doubled in size.

Once the have doubled in size take the cover off, brush tops with egg whites mixed with 1 tablespoon water.  You can top with a bit of garlic salt, or parsley or leave plain.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10-11 minutesbread sticks

Once they are cooked you can also add a little shredded cheese on top for Cheese Bread Sticks, 30 seconds – 1 minute in the oven should melt the cheese.cheesy bread sticks

For generations, white bread was the preferred bread of the rich while the poor ate dark (whole grain) bread. However, in most western societies, the connotations reversed in the late 20th century, with whole grain bread becoming preferred as having superior nutritional value while white bread became associated with lower-class ignorance of nutrition
