Recipe by Iowahorse
READY IN: 3hrs 15mins




  • Sauté onion in butter over medium heat until lightly browned.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Lightly grease three large baking sheets and sprinkle them with cornmeal.
  • Sprinkle yeast over warm water in a mixing bowl.
  • Let stand until yeast is dissolved, then stir in sugar, salt, chopped jalapenos, sautéed onion, buttermilk and 2 cups of the flour.
  • Beat mixture well.
  • Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead about 5 minutes.
  • Place in a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until double, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • Punch down dough and divide into 4 equal parts.
  • On a floured surface, roll out one part dough to form an 8-inch square.
  • Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the square into 8 equal strips.
  • Place the strips onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Repeat with remaining portions of dough.
  • Let rise uncovered (1 hour or more for light, airy breadsticks; 30 minutes for a denser, chewier texture).
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
