TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

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.
