I really enjoyed this recipe, I made a batch of whole wheat and a regular batch. I did not have a bread machine so I just used my mixer and kneaded it for about 15 minutes, then I let it rise for another hour or so then I cut and twisted and let rise for another hour, I followed all the ingredients except I only used 1 tab. of sugar and I used regular flour for the regular one's and whole wheat flour. The wheat seemed dry so I added a couple teaspoons of olive oil and the regular one's where really sticky so I added a little extra flour. I baked for about 10 minutes then brushed with garlic butter and sprinkled with cheese and baked for another 7 minutes. They were really yummy.

These were super easy and really good! I halved the recipe and made the recipe by hand instead of using my bread maker. I was always told that garlic put into the dough would keep it from rising... well no problem here with the garlic powder. After baking, I brushed with a mixture of butter, garlic powder and parsley flakes. These were WONDERFUL!! Thanks for sharing Marie!

"They are so yum," says 6 year old Joel. We've made several times now -- and this recipe gets credit for introducing me to self-rising flour, which I used the other night and made the breadsticks softer and lighter. Instead of Italian seasoning, we use about 1/2-1 tsp. each of dried basil and oregano and dump in extra garlic powder. With the self-rising flour I recommend reducing salt. Son made the right size. I rolled mine too big and when they doubled in size, my DH said they were like small loaves of bread! Yummy and easy to make -- requirements for a "perfect, 5 star" recipe.
