Got this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. We love all kinds of different breads. Haven't gotten to try it yet but sure sounds delicious.

- 3 cups bread flour
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast or 1 teaspoon bread machine yeast
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon water
- crushed black pepper or parmesan cheese or kosher salt

- Add 2c.bread flour, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning,1/2tsp black pepper, Monterey Jack cheese than add the last 1cup of bread flour.
- Make a hole in dough and add the yeast.

- Sprinkle with pepper, salt, and/or cheese.
- Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from baking sheets; cool on wire racks.
These are fabulous. The flavor is great. Easy to make. The only issue I have is that they are much skinnier than the picture. I was expecting these big fluffy breadsticks and they are only a little bigger than my finger. I followed the instructions exactly and I make yeast bread at least once per week, so I'm not new to this. However, perhaps I made a mistake. Anyway great recipe.
These breadsticks are outstanding!! I made them to take to the coast with us for Christmas, hoping they will freeze nicely, don't see why they won't! In any case we had to have a taste, DH loves them as do I and I think they will be a welcome addition to our Christmas dinner. Thanks for posting I will make them again!
