Soft Bread Twists Recipe

My family loves eating these zesty bread twists with a spaghetti supper. Soft and light as a feather, they have a perfect balance of garlic and oregano. Be sure to snatch one before passing them around the table.

  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 178 calories, 7 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 15 mg cholesterol, 151 mg sodium, 24 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, egg, oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 4 cups flour; beat on low speed until smooth. Beat 3 minutes longer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes (dough will be sticky). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Do not punch down. Divide dough into eight pieces. Combine cornmeal and oregano; sprinkle over work surface. Roll each piece of dough in cornmeal mixture and shape into a 15-in.-long rope. Cut each rope into three pieces. Twist each piece and place on greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 400° for 8-12 minutes. Combine garlic powder and remaining salt. Immediately brush twists with melted butter, then sprinkle with garlic powder mixture. Serve with pizza sauce if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 14, 2014

These are very tasty. I fallowed recipe as stated. They freeze and thaw real well. They are just as soft after a freeze and warm up in the oven as when they first came out of the oven. That is a plus in this house as they made more then we could eat in just a day or 2. Will make again.
