Recipe by Nimz_
READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and let it sit until bubbly, about 7-8 minutes.
  • Add the milk, sugar, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, 3 tablespoons butter, salt, and 2 cups flour.
  • Beat until smooth.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Knead with bread hook for 7-8 minutes adding additional flour as needed.
  • Turn onto a floured surface and knead about 10-15 times.
  • Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Punch the dough down and let it rest a couple of minutes.
  • For thin bread sticks, divide into 36 pieces.
  • (This is very versatile here. You can make them as small or as large as you want. I cut mine into 18 pieces for a larger breadstick).
  • Shape each piece into a 6 inch rope.
  • Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled, about 25-35 minutes.
  • Melt remaining butter and brush over the dough.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garlic salt.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from pans to wire racks.
