My kids would make a whole meal on just these breadsticks, so keep an eye on them at mealtime!

  • 1 pkg
    dry yeast

How To Make herbed breadsticks

  • 1
    Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, basil, oregano and salt in a large bowl.
  • 2
    Add water and oil; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth.
  • 3
    Stir in 1 cup parmesan cheese, garlic and enough flour to make a stiff dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 1 minute).
  • 4
    Divide dough into fourths; shape each into a ball.
  • 5
    Cut each ball into 10 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8-inch rope. (Cover remaining dough while working to prevent drying.)
  • 6
    Dip rope in butter and roll in parmesan cheese. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 50 minutes. (Dough will not double in bulk.)
  • 7
    Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
