Whole Wheat Breadsticks

Did you all see the One-Pot Spicy Cannellini Soup I posted yesterday? Well here are the yummy bread sticks we served with them. Both meals are found in this weeks meal plan. The bread sticks are quick to make, delicious, and oh did I mention they are super quick to make? No rise time folks. I also have a video tutorial to take you through each step. LOVE IT! Make some today. We pair our bread sticks with homemade spaghetti sauce, creamy tortellini soup, or Red Pepper and Squash Soup. My hubby could eat just the bread sticks. They are his favorite!

Bread sticks
2 ¼ tsp yeast
1tsp sugar
¾ cup warm water
1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour*
½ tsp salt
2 tbl butter
2 tsp garlic (I used already minced garlic in a jar)
1 tsp Parmesan cheese

Combine yeast, sugar, and water in a bowl. Mix until combined and yeast starts to bubble around the edge of the mixture. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. Yeast mixture will be bubbly after the 5 minutes. Next add flour and salt. Mix until a ball of dough forms. Knead for about 5 minutes. Allow to rest for a few minutes. Next roll out dough into an 8 x 8 rectangle. Take a pizza cutter or knife and cut strips of dough. Place on a grease baking sheet.

Ina small bowl mix melted butter, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Brush onto bread sticks. Cook for 8-10 minutes at 500'.

* you can use whole wheat flour, white flour, or a combination of both.

    1. I always hate when dinner comes around and I want bread, but forgot to plan ahead (I do it often). These bread sticks save me when that happens. Thanks for your sweet comment and I love what I do and sharing it. Best ever!

  5. Could you freeze extra breadsticks for future meals?

  6. What is a good price to get yeast for? I have found that the packets seem pretty expensive.

    1. I buy mine at Costco. I believe I paid around $3.00 for two pounds. Hope this helps

    2. As far as a regular grocery: buy the jarred yeast often called bread machine yeast. Same yeast--much cheaper. One packet equals a scant tablespoon. Just store it in the frige.

    3. You can buy bulk yeast in a regular grocery store in a jar--often labeled bread machine yeast. Just store in the frige.

    4. I buy a 2lb package of Red Star Yeast at Costco. Is it $4.49. Totally worth it. You can freeze yeast too. I buy a few and store them in my freezer until I am ready to use them.

  7. That looks awesome!!! We actually have everything on hand. I'll definitely be making these over spring break next week. I have only ever made one kind of bread and I'm a bit nervous about branching out.

    1. Hey Samantha it could be two things...either your water was not warm enough or was too hot. I get my water straight from the tab. Turn on the hot water and let it run until you can put your hand under, feel it is hot, but not to hot on your skin. This is how you know it is the right temp. Next I take a spoon and quickly stir to let yeast mix with the water. Let it sit for the 5 minutes and you should see bubbles. Let me know if that helps.

  11. Oooh yum! I'll have to make these!

  12. I made one set last night and as soon as they were out I made another so I'd get to eat some after my family got to the pan! Perfect to go with the spaghetti I'd already planned for dinner. I only cooked them on 475 (scared to go above that with my oven)for 8 minutes and they turned out great. Next time I'm going to make a few batches at once and have cookies or another dessert pan-ready to take more advantage of all that oven heating. Thanks for a great, yummy and FAST recipe!

  14. Do u think it would b ok to replace the whole wheat with all purpose flour? My family r not big fans of the WW taste. Thanks much!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I used all purpose flour (white) tonight and it was great! I think I rolled my dough a little too thin or baked it a minute or two too long (I baked for 8 minutes).

      Delete
  15. I made this recipe 3x and I'm determined to get it right ...everytime I make them they come out pretty hard - they taste great, though! Any clue what i'm doing wrong? The yeast bubbles, I let it sit for 5min then knead for five and bake...should I wait longer before baking?

    1. Maybe let your dough rest a bit before baking. I only bake mine for 8 minutes. Make sure you are not rolling the breadsticks to thin.

  16. Hey Danielle! I made these breadsticks with white flour tonight and I thought they were really good. Next time, I'll not roll it as thin (same issue as above), but they were still yummy and fluffy in the middle. Definitely making again! May sprinkle some dried parsley or basil too. Thanks.
    Also, I got a Ninja blender/dough mixer for Christmas and am about to start making our own bread like you've suggested. Our bread cost over $3 for a small loaf, so I figure it's better to make it. Do you think I could knead it with the mixer and bake it in a loaf pan since I don't have a bread maker? Just curious if you make bread for sandwiches NOT in your bread maker ever. Thanks again!

    1. absolutely. I do this in my mixer and have it do all the kneading for me:>

      Delete
  17. If I knead by hand, how long would I knead it for? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. So is this needing 2.25 tsp yeast or 2 packets of the 1/4 tsp of yeast?
