Recipe of the Day

Name: Garlic Herb Breadsticks
Prep: 10 minutes
Rise: 45 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes
Total Prep: 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings: 18 breadsticks

Ingredients:

3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1 package quick-rise yeast
1/4 warm water
3-3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons basil
2 teaspoons parsley
1/2 cup butter, melted

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan, warm milk, sugar, salt, and butter. Allow to cool to lukewarm, between 105°F to 115°F.

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup lukewarm water. When bubbles begin to form, combine milk and yeast mixture. Add flour slowly to the mixture, about 1 to 1 1/2 cups. Mix until smooth and then add enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough.

Knead dough on a floured surface for 6-7 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Spray a large bowl with cooking oil. Place dough in the bowl and turn once to coat with oil.

Cover and let rest for 30 minutes in a warm place. When the dough is doubled in size, punch it down. Divide dough in half and turn onto a floured surface.

Roll out dough until 1 inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 1-inch strips. Place strips on a baking sheet or baking stone coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise for an additional 15 minutes.

In a small bowl mix garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, parmesan, and butter. Brush mixture over the breadsticks.

Heat oven to 400°F. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
