30 Minute Breadsticks

This week I pinned the Pizza Factory Bread Sticks recipe and actually got around to making them.  Here's the proof:
   
They were pretty good, yet they kind of fell apart as we were eating them.  They were too long and the "twist" separated.  So I decided to see how they compare to our "family favorite" bread stick recipe.  The only difference is an extra tablespoon of sugar and the twisting.  I think we'll stick with our original recipe next time we make bread sticks!

This is a recipe my sister gave me when we were still in college. (At least that's what I remember.)  Even if you don't have time for the Pretzel Dogs, you might be able to make the time for these.

30 Minute Breadsticks
1 tablespoon yeast
1 ½ cups warm water
1 tablespoon honey or sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 to 4 ½ cups flour
2 tablespoons melted margarine

Dissolve yeast in water. Add honey, salt and half the flour. Beat 3 minutes. Stir in rest of flour. Knead 10 mintues. Roll dough into an 8x10” rectangle and slice into sticks. Place in buttered pan and brush with melted margarine. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic salt or sesame seeds if desired. Let rise 15-30 minutes. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes. Makes 18 (at about 125 calories each).This time around I divided the dough into 18 little balls and rolled them individually before placing on the cookie sheet. Then I sprinkled them with grated Parmesan cheese. Here's the finished product!
They're great with spaghetti :)
