OK, first of all let’s just ask ourselves “what on Earth happened to your blog?!” Doesn’t look the same does it? And it doesn’t look too pretty at the moment either does it? I am currently switching over to a new blogging system that in the long run will be a much better format for my blog, but for now just makes it look ugly. Bear with me people, we’ll get this thing looking better. In the meantime, have a breadstick:
Is it starting to feel Fall-ish for anyone else? It’s only barely maybe a little if you close your eyes and imagine really hard starting to here, but soon, my friends, soon, it will be soup and bread weather! So here, is a very easy, very fast breadstick recipe you can use.
Now, I am not a huge bread person, but when I make these my family thinks I am a miracle worker. I got the recipe from my mother in law and we always laugh because mine turn out so huge and fat, but I don’t know how to make them any other way and besides-who doesn’t want and huge and fat breadstick?
So, here you go:
- 1 pkg. yeast
- 1½ C warm water
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 3½ C flour
- ½ tsp salt
- Soften yeast in water
- Add the rest of the ingredients and knead for 3-5 minutes.
- Let raise at least 20 minutes
- Roll out the dough about ½ inch thick, fold in half and cut in strips that are about 1 inch wide.
- Melt a bowl full of margarine.
- Dip each strip in the margarine, twist the strip and lay it on very well greased cookie sheet.
- Top with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese.
- Let raise again about 20 more minutes.
- Bake at 375 degrees for about 15-17 minutes.
Now, don’t let the “60 min.” prep time fool you. You won’t actually be cooking very long, most of that is letting the dough raise and if you don’t have that long to wait, you can let it raise for less time.
So, here’s your dough that you are going to roll out:
Fold it in half:
And cut into 1 inch strips:
Then dip each strip in margarine:
Twist and place on cookie sheet:
And top with garlic salt and parmesan cheese:
Bake and serve them up with your favorite soup! Here’s mine. Happy Fall!
