Quick Bread Sticks

This recipe is from a personal cookbook that was given to me by a lady who is no longer with us...It is a great, fast recipe you can make from start to finish in 1 hour.  This recipe is definitely a basic dough...not much flavor.  BUT you get to make it into what ever you need!  It is a springy type of bread stick, and the kids just love them.


1 tbsp yeast
1 1/2 c warm water
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups flour
FLAVORS (garlic, chives, green onions, cheese, season salt...)

Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Mix and knead all ingredients for 3 minutes. (this is where you would want to add the flavor of your choice.  Today I added garlic, minced fine and then brushed the dough with butter and cooked it, when it came out I brushed with more butter and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese)  Let rest for 10 minutes.

Roll out of bowl onto a floured surface.  Dough is very soft.  Just spray a cookie sheet, gently place the dough in the center, pat into a large circle with your hands and then cut with a knife into strips.

Brush the strips with melted butter and garlic.  Place in a warm spot until they have risen.  (I usually heat up the oven a bit then turn it off and place them in there to rise)  Once risen, turn oven to 375 and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.

When they come out, you can brush them again with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve! YUM
