I've been making these tasty breadsticks that go with almost any meal for years. Since they use ingredients like flour, sugar, baking powder and milk, it's convenient and inexpensive to mix up a batch. -Nancy Johnson, Connersville, Indiana

"Perfect solution for breadsticks during a snow day when I didn't have yeast! Everyone enjoyed them -used garlic rather than sesame seeds to accompany lasagna!"

"These were terrific! I ommitted the sesame seeds and instead used a blend of 1/4c melted butter, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and 1/4 tsp garlic salt, I put 2/3 of the mixture in the bottom of the 9x13 pan and baked the breadsticks, then brushed the tops of baked sticks with remaining 1/3 of mixture. Absolutely delicious, and my husband who swears he doesn't like non-yeast bread items loved it!"
