Directions

  1. In a small skillet, saute onion in oil until tender; cool. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, 1 egg, sugar, salt, and 1 cup flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in onion and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Let stand for 10 minutes. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 32 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8-in. rope. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
  4. Beat cold water and remaining egg; brush over breadsticks. Sprinkle half with sesame seeds and half with poppy seeds. Bake at 350° for 16-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 26, 2013

These were good; left out the toppings. The outside was rather crusty. The printed recipe in the TOH Cookbook has a typo with the "1 egg" being added twice to the dough. After I did that I didn't have one to brush on the top. The online recipe looks like it is correct.

Tasty breadsticks! These came out better than I expected them to. I varied the "toppings" to just sesame seeds, sesame seeds and grated parmesan cheese mixture, and basil, parsley, and parmesan cheese mixture. The fam thought they were great!!

I made these with soup, and my family gobbled them up! I would add more onion, and will when I make these again. My dough took longer to rise, but it was a simple and delicious recipe.
