Ooh, are you in for a treat! Before you know it, you’ll be buying quick-rise yeast on a regular basis. My father-in-law: “I think this is the best piece of bread I’ve ever put in my mouth.” And it’s such a simple recipe! P-dub readers everywhere, I bring you: bread sticks.
Note: The dough is fairly light and sticky, so I prefer to use the dough hook on the KitchenAid mixer instead of kneading by hand. I also end up using more flour than the recipe calls for.
Whisk together all dry ingredients then add warm water. Knead thoroughly, for about 10 minutes, until the dough is satiny in texture. If the dough is still too sticky, add 1/4 – 1/2 cup more flour during the kneading process. Let the dough rest for a few minutes before rolling.
-Melt 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup); use half of it to evenly cover the bottom of a jelly roll pan.
-On a floured surface, roll out the dough to the approximate size of the pan. Transfer the dough to the pan by draping/rolling it onto the pin. Roll the dough to the edges of the pan (this can be tricky).
-Cut the dough to your preferred bread stick size using a pizza cutter.
-Use the rest of the melted butter to top the dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garlic salt to taste.
Place the pan in an unheated oven and bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes. While the oven preheats, the dough will rise. Or, alternately, let the dough rise to the top of the pan while preparing the rest of the meal and bake the bread sticks in a preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes.
Yield: approximately 18
This bread smells absolutely amazing as it bakes—just try to resist a slice, especially lightly toasted and topped with butter and cinnamon sugar. The sparkling water makes for a fluffy texture without using heavier ingredients like oil, butter, or even eggs!
Chocolate zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chunks and drizzled with an orange-infused chocolate glaze.
