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.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Pizza sauce or salsa, optional

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.
