I decided to try this recipe that I found on another food blog. The recipe seemed quick and easy but allowed me to provide homemade breadsticks for my family. I love bread. It is one of weaknesses, especially made from scratch bread. I did alter the recipe slightly.
I only made 12 breadsticks, because I like them soft. I also dipped each breadstick in melted butter before placing them on the cookie sheet. Then I sprinkled them all with garlic salt, them sprinkle half with parmesan cheese and the other half with salad supreme. The original recipe called for garlic salt to be sprinkled on the breadsticks.
The second time I made these I added a tsp of garlic salt to the butter and I liked how that turned out better than sprinkling. My family really loves the breadsticks with lots of garlic flavor. I also used my kitchen aid and let it knead the dough for 3 min. One tip for the kitchen aid would be, remove the dough of the dough hook before you knead it for the 3 minutes. Thanks to mykitchencafe.blogspot.com. This recipe is going to be added to my tried and true file.
