Bread Sticks

This is a nice touch to a special meal.  It’s also a great snack to have around.

Dough

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 package fast-acting yeast

Flavoring Rub

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • Garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated parmesan cheese to taste

Mix dry ingredients.  Add water and olive oil.  Knead for 5 minutes and form into a ball.  Cover with a damp cloth and let rise at room temperature for half an hour.

Preheat oven to 450°F.  Dust a cutting board with flour, roll out dough to 1/16 inch thickness.  Baste half the surface with oil and dry herbs/spices.  Dust basted surface with parmesan cheese.  Fold over and cut into 1/4 inch strips.  Twirl each strip to form a helix.

crushed garlic works too

Place strips on a baking surface and put in the heated oven for 20 minutes.  These are meant to be crunchy, so they can stay out for a couple of days.  That assumes they’ll last for a couple of days.  Goes well with garlic & olive oil dipping sauce.
