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.

The BEST, that's the comment from my picky eater nephew who likes almost nothing. I have to agree, soft pillow crumb, with the flavors of the brushed on butter n spices. Made it exactly as directed in the ABM so couldn't have been easier, served them with scallops and pasta and it was the perfect bread. I'm betting this one is going to make all our Italian meals in the future

Dangerously tasty. I added water, sugar, and yeast to the machine, then everything else 10 minutes later. Inspired by the picture, I braided the sticks and topped them with olive oil and parm 2 minutes before taking them out of the oven.

We really liked these bread sticks. The recipe was quick and easy to put together. Baked them until they were golden brown and they were still soft inside. This is a good base recipe to use to experiment with other flavors of bread sticks also. We'll be making these on a semi regular basis.

Wonderful breadsticks. Mine looked more like little mini bread loaves, but still tasted great :)
