Too Good To Be True Breadsticks

I originally received this recipe from Joy and fell in love with it instantly. Since the first time I made it, I've been playing around with different variations of the basic recipe. Each one has proven to be just as good as the original. And honestly, the original recipe really doesn't need any changes, I just like to try different things.

Here's the original recipe:

  • 1 1⁄2 cup warm water
  • 1 T. yeast
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 3 1⁄2 c. flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 2–3 T. butter, margarine, melted, or extra-virgin olive oil
  • Garlic powder/salt
  • Parmesan cheese

1. Add the yeast to the warm water and stir. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until bubbly.
2. Mix sugar, flour, and salt together. Add the yeast mixture and stir to mix well.
3. Knead for a few minutes until smooth. Let stand 10 minutes.
4. Pour melted butter/margarine or olive oil in a 9”x13” baking dish.
5. Press the dough into the dish, spreading it out to fill it completely.
6. Cut the dough into strips in the baking dish and sprinkle with garlic and/or Parmesan cheese as desired.
7. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
8. Bake 20 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven until golden brown.

And here is one of our favorite, over-the-top indulgent variations - mozzarella and bacon breadsticks.

After the first 10 minutes of baking, I pulled the breadsticks out and covered them with 1 c. of mozzarella cheese and about 8 strips of fully cooked and crumbled bacon.

Oh, I love making bread, and this looks SO good I'll have to try it. Yesterday I made your chocolate chip cheesecake brownie cups (only I used butterscotch chips since I like to change things too). Oh wow, they are almost too good for words! Thanks for the recipe!

Warmly,

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
