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.

A meal isn't a meal without bread in my house. These definitely sound worth trying one of these days :)

You are so resourceful in the kitchen! Love this recipe for when that carb craving hits, but your pantry is lacking all the ingredients required for some yummy bread.

Marcie Cheung said...

Wow! This looks like something my toddler would not only help make but also help eat!

Who doesn't love some tasty breadsticks? They can make any meal. I wish I could make them as easily as this seems.

Dawn McAlexander said...

That is great. Some time back my husband figured out how to make biscuits without milk or eggs. I like things like that because we can make bread last minute without a trip to the store.

Jessi Joachim said...

These look super good! I am not much of a bread baker but i might have to try this

Joanna Brittain said...

Love the idea of these. I mean yeast has a time and place, but sometimes I want to make things without it.

Mandy Carter said...

This is good to know that they taste good without the yeast. They look fantastic!

This is one aspect of being gluten-free that is difficult. I miss being able to throw together yummy breadsticks like this.

I am a little bit of a bread junkie as well so these no yeast bread sticks look and sound amazing. I will have to try them out!

These look yummy. I actually didn't even know you could make yummy bread without yeast. I'll have to try it.

These look really yummy! Didn't know making bread could be so simple.

Miss Thrifty said...

Great idea. I make my own bread from scratch, but it takes four hours. I can't tell you the number of times my meal plans have come unstuck because we have run out of bread with insufficient time to make more!

Tereza Kohutova said...

These look so simple to make, definitely gonna give these a go tomorrow morning before everyone wakes up haha x

It's been a long time since the last time I made bread, maybe it's because the process to make it takes quite sometimes. This recipe a shortcut which is great. I will try this. It's simple and sounds delicious.
