How To Make big ole bill's grissini al formaggio

  • 1
    Stir the yeast into the water in a mixer bowl. Let stand until foamy, about ten minutes.
  • 2
    Mix in the oil with a paddle attachment, then add the flour and salt and mix until the dough comes together.
  • 3
    Change to a dough hook and knead at low speed about three minutes. Add the parmesan cheese to the dough, and finish kneeing by hand on a lightly floured surface.
  • 4
    First rise...pat the dough with your hand into a 14 x 4 inch rectangle on a well-floured surface. Lightly brush the top with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size...about an hour.
  • 5
    Cut the dough crosswise into four equal sections. Then cut each section crosswise into five strips the size of a fat finger each.
  • 6
    Pick up each strip, hold each end with your finger, pull and stretch to fit crosswise width) on a baking sheet. Place the strips several inches apart on a lightly oiled baking sheet. (I find it easier to use the back of the baking sheet unless you have rimless baking sheets.
  • 7
    Preheat oven to 450 degrees and bake the breadsticks for 20 minutes. Cool on racks.
