Italian Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks Recipe


Italian Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

3 tsp. active dry yeast

1 ½ cups warm water (110 F. to 115 F.)

4 Tbsp. canola oil, divided

1 Tbsp. sugar

¼ tsp. salt

4 cups flour

½ cup butter, melted

3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp. dried parsley flakes

1 ½ tsp. garlic powder


In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add 1 tablespoon oil, sugar, salt, and 3 cups flour.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).  Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15 inch square.  Cut in half lengthwise; cut each half widthwise into 1 inch strips.

In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, cheese, parsley, garlic powder and remaining oil.  Dip each strip into butter mixture, then twist two to three times.

Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 F. for 18-21 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.                  2 ½ dozen

Maple syrup sweetens these lovely cinnamon buns. I make the dough in my bread machine before popping the rolls in the oven. My husband prefers them warm.

½ cup warm water

1 packet active dry yeast

1 tsp. sugar

2 1/1 cup flour

¼ tsp. salt

3 minced garlic cloves

1 can (28 oz.) San Marzano tomatoes, broken into small pieces, with juice

1 tsp. oregano

Salt and pepper to taste

2 whole basil leaves, chopped

1 Lb. fresh mozzarella, sliced thin

Grated Romano cheese

½ cup olive oil that has been simmered with salt, pepper and rosemary

6 to 8 basil leaves

Dough:  Combine milk and water in a small bowl, sprinkle with yeast and sugar, let stand until yeast is dissolved.

Combine flour and salt in mixer bowl with dough hook, with mixer on low gradually pour in liquid.  Knead on medium speed until dough is smooth and elastic, about 15 minutes.  Place in a large oiled bowl, cover, let rise until doubled in size.

Preheat gas grill to medium-low.   Oil grids.  Divide dough into 4 pieces, roll each into a 10 inch round.

Brush each piece generously with seasoned olive oil.  Quickly place dough pieces on grill, oiled sides down.  Brush tops with oil.  Cook, covered, until bottoms are lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.  Turn, cook another 2 to 3 minutes.

Transfer pizzas to baking sheets.  Spread 2-3 tablespoons sauce on each.  Add mozzarella slices, not too close to edges.  Sprinkle with Romano and basil leaves.  Grill, covered, until cheese melts.  Serve.

4 to 6 pizzas
