Divine Breadsticks

Earlier this week, I prepared baked spaghetti, and didn't have any bread to make in the freezer. Gah! I perused My Kitchen Cafe to see if she had a quick bread recipe, and came across her recipe for Divine Breadsticks. The best part about these, there is only a 30 minute rise required! This is my kind of bread! I actually made two different variations of the breadsticks, one with seasonings and one with a cheesy mixture on top (the cheesy breadsticks can be found here). Both turned out really well, and quick!

adapted from My Kitchen Cafe

1 ½ cups warm water
1 tablespoon instant yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
3 ½ cups flour (I used 2 cups whole wheat and 1 1/2 cups all purpose.)
1/4teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted (for the baking sheet)

Mix all ingredients (except melted butter) in a large bowl or electric mixer and knead for three minutes. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Spread melted butter onto an 11X17-inch baking sheet. Roll out the breadstick dough about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick and cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Twist slightly if desired and place about 1/2-inch apart on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with garlic salt, herbs of choice (I used basil and rosemary) and Parmesan cheese. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise 30 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees until golden brown.
