Favorite Breadsticks

You can use any combination of flours and cracked wheat, but this is what I have found most people like the best.

Favorite Breadsticks

1 c. plus 2 Tb. warm water
3 Tb. oil
1 c. cracked wheat
1 c. wheat flour
1 c. white flour
1 Tb. honey
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp. yeast

1 square of butter
garlic salt
grated Parmesan cheese

Mix and knead first 8 ingredients, adding more flour as needed until dough is soft and smooth (but not sticky), and pliable.

Let rise about 15 min while oven preheats to 350 degrees.

Punch down dough and roll out into a rectangular shape until flat and thin (about 1/4 inch thick). Melt butter on cookie sheet/pan with sides until completely melted and bubbling--this only takes a few, short minutes.

Cut dough into finger-width strips.

Remove sheet from oven. Taking a few dough strips at a time, quickly roll both sides in melted butter and place neatly in pan until all strips are coated.

Sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. Let rise 10-15 min. (Sometimes I don't have time to let them rise, but they rise quite a bit in the oven, so they turn out fine.)

Cook for 15-20 min, or until browned, at 350 degrees.

Allow to cool 5-10 min. Separate with fork.

do you knead by hand or do you use a bread maker for the kneading?

Now that I have a break mixer (not maker), I let the machine do the kneading. But you could do it just as well by hand.
