Quick Rise Breadsticks

 

image

  • 1 c. warm water
  • 1 T. yeast
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2-3 c. bread flour

Topping:

  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1/4 c. parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 t. garlic salt
  • 1 t. dried parsley

Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Add olive oil, salt and flour and knead until smooth and elastic. Let rest for 10 min. Shape into breadsticks and place on greased baking sheet. Combine toppings and brush on breadsticks. Let rise 10 min. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min, until golden brown.

Yield: 16 breadsticks

This recipe is from my BYU cooking class’s textbook. These breadsticks are great for when you don’t want to wait 2 hours for dough to rise- they can be done in less than an hour. You can substitute shredded cheddar or mozzarella for the parmesan if you want to change it up.

Hooray for this recipe! Thank you so much for posting this Kim...last night we had dinner at a friends and I didn't realize until an hour before that I was supposed to bring the bread. These were DELISH. I could not even tell that they were a quick rise - sometimes quick yeast breads have a weird texture but this was magnificent. Yay!
