Then I take a deep breath and start making Soft Breadsticks. And 15 minutes later, we have bread with dinner. All is right with the world.
I got this recipe from Taste of Home magazine years and years ago. I have used it many, many, many times since. It is just that easy and that good. Try it and you'll see why we make it so often.
In a small bowl combine:
1 1/4 c. flour
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Stir to combine well. Add
2/3 c. milk
Stir until a soft dough forms. This is kind of like biscuit dough, you don't want to be too tough with it or the breadsticks will be tough. Roll the dough out to a rectangle approximately 10" x 5" and about 1/2 " thick. Cut it into 12 breadsticks.
In a 9x13 pan melt 3 Tbs. of butter or margarine. Place the breadsticks in the pan, flipping to coat both sides. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and place in a 450 degree oven for 14 -18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
- I almost always need less milk. Don't add it all at once, you can always add more, but it is really hard to take it out if you used too much!!
- Sometimes I sprinkle them with garlic powder and sesame seeds. You could do poppy seeds or a combo also.
- We always double this recipe. I have a half-sheet cake pan that fits the doubled recipe perfectly. You could use two 9x13's if you don't have a big pan.
