Easy Cheesy Garlic And Herb Breadsticks

Monday, December 3, 2012
Easy Cheesy Garlic And Herb Breadsticks. I love breadsticks and every so often I make these for my fabulous family as a treat to go with dinner. Warm and crunchy on the outside. Soft and chewy on the inside, could anything be better? Oh, wait don't let me forget the cheesy garlic and herb coating.
I love that I can make these ahead and leave them in the refrigerator and pop them in the oven later that day or the next. 
Next time you have Italian night, soup night, meatloaf night or any other night make sure to make some tasty Easy Cheesy Garlic And Herb Breadsticks!
In a large mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook add warm water, honey and yeast. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes until yeast is bubbly and active.
It will look like this.
Add flour and sea salt.
Knead until smooth and elastic on medium setting about 8 minutes. Optionally you can mix by hand and knead until smooth and elastic. Cover dough and allow to rest for 35 minutes.  
Divide dough into four. Divide each fourth into six.
Roll each portion of dough into a 6-8 inch long rope, dependent on whether you prefer a thicker chewier  or a thin and crunchy breadstick.
In a food processor add parmesan cheese, oregano, rosemary and thyme. Pulse together until crumbly. 
It will look like breadcrumbs.
In a large dish melt butter. Add fresh minced garlic and garlic powder. Mix well. Roll uncooked breadstick in butter mixture.
Then roll uncooked breadstick in cheese mixture.
Place about 3 inches apart on a baking sheet. At this point you can cover and refrigerate for up to a day until ready to use.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cook for 15-18 minutes or until brown on the outside and cooked through.   Remove from the cookie sheet immediately. 
Bon Appetite!
