Lets be honest who doesn’t love bread right? Most of us cannot resist some homemade bread with some melted butter on it. Yes believe it or not I do eat bread. Bread is one of my weaknesses besides sweets. I normally make bread to next to a main meal. For example if I made some soup or a pasta dish I would make some bread to go along with it.
Bread doesn’t last long in my house. Between my husband and kids it’s gone within minutes.
for this recipe it’s perfect if you would like a piece of bread to dip in your soup.
this is what you will need:
1½ cups warm water
1 packet active dry yeast
4¼ cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon of salt
In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water and allow to sit for 10 minutes, covered. Mixture should be foamy.In separate bowl, combine flour and salt. Add to yeast mixture. Add melted butter. Mix with paddle attachment of stand mixer or wooden spoon until fully combined.Grease a cookie sheet. Pull off pieces of dough and roll out into strips. Cover the dough and let sit in a warm place for 45 minutes to an hour.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and once heated, pop in the bread sticks.
In microwave, combine the following: 1 stick unsalted butter (or 1/2 cup margarine), 2 teaspoons garlic powder and 1 teaspoons salt.
After bread sticks have cooked for 6 or 7 minutes, brush the bread sticks with half the butter mixture. Then continue to bake. Bake for 5-8 more minutes.
