  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, egg, oil, sugar, salt, oregano, marjoram, thyme, garlic powder and 3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Cut into 6-in. x 1-in. strips. Place on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Brush with egg; sprinkle with herb seasoning. Bake at 400° for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 32 breadsticks.

"These are delicious. I do add more garlic powder for a more intense flavour."

"I've made this recipe twice & both times the bread just didn't have enough taste for me. Perhaps bread flour might bring about a better result."
