Matt Boomsma Approved Breadsticks

Sometimes all you want is something dipped in butter and slathered in garlic…. That’s all.  Thanks Bye.
Oh… you probably want more detail.  OK.  Friends were coming for dinner – it was Friday night, the first Friday I was back to work after my maternity leave.  What on earth bread could I make that would be quick, but awesome?  I found this garlic breadstick recipe online – oh man.  They are awesome!   They aren’t really like Olive Garden’s, but that’s not a good or a bad thing.  They are their own thing.  Soft and yummy.  As you can see Andy helped with the rolling in butter and twisting.
This recipe?  Super easy and really yummy.  Plan to do over and over again!

Mmmm Breadsticks
What you need!
3 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup butter
Parmesan cheese
garlic salt
parsley flakes (optional)

Make it!
Combine water and yeast in small bowl.
In larger bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt.
Add yeast water and mix. 
Knead and let rise 20 minutes.
Melt one cube of butter, and pour onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle the butter with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese.
Roll the dough into a rectangle the size of the cookie sheet, and use a pizza cutter to cut into 12 one inch wide strips. Double the long pieces of dough in half, and twist to form the bread stick.
Roll each bread stick around in the butter in the pan until completely covered. When all bread sticks are arranged in the pan, sprinkle tops with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. Don't be shy, get 'em good! Add parsley if desired.
This makes 12 large bread sticks, or 18 or 24 smaller bread sticks.
Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes. Watch closely, remove when they start to brown. Yum!
