Garlic Breadsticks

Recipe Adapted From Food

Garlic Breadsticks

Ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour ~ 3 cups
  • Active dry yeast ~ 11/2 tsp.
  • Sugar ~ 1 tsp.
  • Water, warm ~ 11/4 cups
  • Salt ~ 11/2 tsp.
  • Olive oil ~ 1 Tbsp.

Topping:

  • Garlic, minced ~ 3 Tbsp.
  • Olive oil ~ 3 Tbsp.
  • Rosemary, chopped ~ 1 Tbsp.

Steps:

  • In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water. Once the sugar has been evenly distributed throughout the water, stir in the yeast with a whisk. Let it now sit for about 5 to 10 minutes undisturbed. Once the yeast begins to form a creamy foam on the surface of the water, continue with the rest of the steps.
  • Now add the flour, salt and oil to the yeast mixture, and mix until it comes together. It’s OK if it’s too sticky at this stage.
  • Turn this dough onto a floured surface, and knead the dough for about 10 minutes, adding more flour as necessary, until it’s smooth and no longer sticky. Place it in a well oiled bowl, and cover it with a damp kitchen towel, for about an hour until it’s doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough, place it on a floured surface, and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 deg. F
  • Once the dough has rested for 10 minutes, roll it to 16″ x 8″ rectangle, and brush it liberally with the topping mixture.
  • Cut 16 strips of 1 inch each, and twist it by picking the ends and twisting in the opposite direction.
  • Place it in a greased baking sheet, and bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

Notes:

  • Sprinkle some sea salt on the strips before placing it in the oven, for an added taste.
  • As soon as it’s out of the oven (and still very hot), brush with some melted butter for an even better taste.
