Butter Parmesan Breadsticks


It’s coming up on soup season and really there is nothing better than having some good bread to go with your soup, right? Really there is nothing better in life than having bread with everything. This recipe comes courtesy of Frieda. She has an incredible blog with brilliant close-up photos. Seriously. You’ll want to eat the food in the photos. And her recipes are fantastic. I took her advice to use her roll recipe for the dough and the breadsticks turned out so light. Light and heavenly. Dreamy, really.



1½  t yeast

5 T + 1 t sugar

1 egg

3 T butter

1/4 c milk

1/2 t salt

2 – 2½ c flour



1 cube butter

1/2 t garlic salt

1/2 c grated parmesan cheese

additional butter to brush on cooked breadsticks


Mix yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1/4 cup warm water. Let sit 5 minutes or until yeast bubbles. Meanwhile, place egg, uncracked, in warm water to bring to room temperature. Set aside. Combine milk, 5 tablespoons sugar, and butter and microwave on 50% power for 2 minutes or until butter is almost melted. Stir. Combine yeast mixture, milk mixture, and egg. While mixing, slowly add 2 cups flour and salt. Add additional flour until smooth dough forms. Place dough in oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Rise for 20-30 minutes or until double in size.


Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt cube of butter in large baking sheet with 1-inch sides. Remove from oven. Roll out dough on greased surface to ¼-inch thickness. Cut into 1-inch strips. Fold each strip in half and twist. Roll each twist in butter and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 375°F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Immediately brush with additional melted butter.
