Easy Breadsticks Recipe

I'm making some of these yummy breadsticks for dinner tonight. We eat these almost once a week! I'll be forever grateful for my good friend Chrispy who taught me how to make them!
I love them because they are easy and work well with white or whole wheat flour (or a mix of the two).
To make {This Little Project} you need:
1.5 cups warm water
1 T. yeast
3 T. sugar
4 cups flour (white or whole wheat)
3/4 T salt
1/2 cup of butter OR margarine OR olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
garlic salt

{Project Note:} If you want to time these to come out when your dinner is ready, plan for about an hour-start to finish. They are easy, but there is 25 minutes of "wait" time involved before you cook them :)

FIRST: combine these and let them sit together while you do the next mixture:
1.5 cups warm water
1 T. yeast
3 T. sugar

SECOND- Make flour mixture: (combine in your mixing bowl)
4 cups flour (white or whole wheat)
3/4 T salt

3- Add yeast mixture to flour mixture in your kitchen aid. Mix together and let sit for 10 minutes.

4- Roll the dough out into a greased jellyroll pan (or cookie sheet with 4 sides). {Project Note:} I think it is difficult to use a rolling pin inside the pan so I mostly just use my hands to spread the dough out- but it gives them a bumpy look-as you can tell :)

5- Spread 1/2 cup melted butter (or margarine, or olive oil) over the dough. {Project Note:} Yes, this seems like a lot of butter. You can experiment with less if you would like. Every time I do, my husband notices it's less and asks me to leave it will ALL the butter :)

6- Sprinkle with 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and then sprinkle with garlic salt

7- Cut into strips with a pizza cutter.

8- Let rise for 15 minutes.

9- Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

These are BEST hot but are still yummy the second day, especially if you warm them again.
They are the perfect bread with anything Italian, but we also love them with soup. And breadsticks are also just a great winter treat!
