Italian Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks Recipe

Italian Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks Recipe

I found this recipe in a farm newspaper many years ago. It is one of my family's favorite appetizers especially before Italian dishes.—Loretta Fisher, Abbottstown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + standing Bake: 20 min. YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1 tablespoon oil, sugar, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15-in. square. Cut in half lengthwise; cut each half widthwise into 1-in. strips.
  • 3. In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, cheese, parsley, garlic powder and remaining oil. Dip each strip into butter mixture, then twist two to three times.
  • 4. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 18-21 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
