What We Ate: {The Best Homemade Breadsticks You'll Ever Eat}

Did I ever tell you that Mike is a master in the kitchen?

Especially when we're talking about bread.

He kinda has to be because 9 times out of 10, I kill the yeast. Yep, dead.

Plus, does he not look so good while in the kitchen?
Swoon.

So today we're talking breadsticks. But not just any breadsticks. The best ever breadsticks.

We like 'em anyway.


Twisted Breadsticks

The Stuff:

3 cups warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp yeast
1 tsp salt
6 to 8 cups flour
Melted butter
McCormick Salad Supreme seasoning

The Doing:

Combine the water, sugar and yeast. Let stand for 10 minutes, until its nice and foamy. Add the salt and stir. Add half of the flour and mix. Add the remaining flour.

Shape your dough into a ball, place in a large bowl, and let rise until double in size.

Punch down dough and divide in half. Roll out one half into a rectangle (10"x12") on a floured surface. Use a pizza cutter and cut the rectangle into 12 strips, 1" wide. Take each strip and roll (ya know, like a snake). Fold the strip in half and then twist the ends in opposite directions. Lay on a greased baking sheet. Once all 12 strips have been placed on baking sheet, cover each in a layer of melted butter and then sprinkle your McCormick Salad Supreme seasoning over the top. (Obviously you could use any seasoning at this point, but the Salad Supreme is by far our favorite....and yes...we've tried others!) Do the same thing with the remaining half of the dough.

Let breadsticks rise for about another 30 minutes.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
