Soft Herb and Parmesan Breadsticks

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013


You can usually find breadsticks served as appetizers in Italian restaurants, these pencil-sized sticks are crisp and dry. Fresh from the oven, this recipe is for buttery, golden breadsticks; they’re so easy and they complement any meal…

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Roll prepared bread dough into a 10 x 12 inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface.  Using a knife or pizza cutter slice the dough lengthwise into ten strips, then cut each strip in half.  Place strips on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.  Brush tops of strips with 2 tablespoons melted butter, sprinkle with your choice of dried herbs and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.  Cover, let rise until nearly double, about 30 minutes.

2. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 23 minutes, or until golden brown.  Turn broiler on, and brush breadsticks with 2 tablespoons more melted butter and sprinkle more Parmesan cheese.  Broil until the cheese starts to turn light brown, about 2 – 3 minutes.
