Thought I would put a couple of the recipes that I use a lot on here. Since they’re my favorites, someone else might like them too 🙂
Today, I’m going to bring you a recipe that I use at least once a week. We’re pasta eaters. We like alfredo, marinara, lasagna, ziti, and even all kinds of varieties of things over egg noodles. Often, pasta dishes are one dish meals, needing only bread and a salad to make it seem complete.
Bread Machine Breadsticks
1 c. warm water
1/4 c. oil
3 c. bread flour
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp. yeast
Place all ingredients in bread pan of bread machine. Layer in listed order unless your bread machine has a different manner of layering. Run the bread machine in its dough cycle. Then roll out onto a 10 x 12 buttered cookie sheet. I usually sprinkle a little flour over the top of mine to keep the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. That’s why you can see white in the picture of finished breadsticks.
Use a pizza cutter to cut into strips. Let rise about an hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 15 minutes.
There are two variations for how I like to top this bread. The bread in the picture hasn’t been topped yet, but I’m making it as a breadbasket type side, so I will melt 1/2 stick of butter and mix with with 1/2 tsp garlic salt. I’ll drizzle that over the bread and sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese.
The other way to make it is like a dessert bread. I also melt 1/2 a stick of butter for that. I mix in about 2-3 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon and pour over.
Of course, the toppings are only for the days when I can keep myself from eating it hot off the baking sheet 😉
