Last-Minute, No-Yeast Breadsticks



One of the worst feelings is feeling like you should have bread as a side for your meal and realizing you a) don't have time to prepare the bread, or b) no yeast. It happens to me all the time. Thankfully there's a quick solution: Last-Minute, No-Yeast Breadsticks.

This is not a new concept, but one of those recipes you just need to have in your cooking arsenal.

INGREDIENTS
1 1/4 cup flour (for healthier alternative, do 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup wheat flour)
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
3 Tbsp butter, melted
garlic salt
Italian seasoning

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Slowly add milk and use your hands to mix in the milk to create a dough.
  2. Knead the dough a few times on a floured counter top (be sure it's clean!)
  3. Use a rolling pin to stretch the dough into a rectangle about 5" x 9". Slice into breadsticks. This recipe makes about 10-12 depending on breadstick width.
  4. Add half the melted butter to the bottom of the 9x13 glass baking dish. Roll the breadsticks in the butter.
  5. Use a pastry brush to add more butter on top (be sure to reserve some butter for when the breadsticks are finished).
  6. Bake at 450 for about 15 minutes, or until the breadsticks are done.
  7. Immediately coat the breadsticks with the remaining butter. Sprinkle on garlic salt and Italian seasonings.

These breadsticks are a good side to Italian dishes. While not as full-bodied as breadsticks with yeast, they're still satisfying, particularly if you're a bread junkie like my family.
