Egg-free bread sticks

Submitted by on Saturday, 29 January 2011 No Comment
Quick and easy bread sticks made with yeast? Indeed it is possible.

I was skeptical when I found the original recipe, but I also was craving garlic bread to go with spaghetti that night. We didn't have any on hand, so I was forced to improvise.

Though I made a few changes from the original - brown sugar in garlic bread just sounds yucky to me - it really was as easy as promised! The whole thing was done in about an hour, but very little of that is hands-on time.

The guys devoured them at dinner and dunked them in marinara and parmesan cheese for a snack the next day. Next time, I'm going to add the parmesan to the butter and garlic mixture and bake it in.

Egg-free breadsticks

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tbl. sugar sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 c.  bread flour - I used half white whole wheat
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons yeast - that's one package
  • 1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic - onion powder is an OK substitute if you're allergic to garlic.

Mix the dough in a medium bowl. Knead briefly, until smooth and elastic, then roll into a 10x12 inch rectangle. Cut the dough into strips about 3/4 inch wide. Twist each strip, then place on a baking sheet treated with cooking spray. Brush the strips with the melted butter and garlic. Let rise for at least 20 minutes - longer is fine. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
