Easy Breadsticks

This is a great side dish for pretty much anything!  You can change up the spices and cheeses to match whatever you are having...from garlic seasoning and parmesan cheese to Salad Supreme, use your imagination!

1 1/2 C warm water
2 T sugar
1 T yeast
1/2 t salt
3 1/2- 4 C flour
1/4 C butter
Seasonings/cheeses of choice for topping

Mix the water, sugar and yeast together in a measuring cup or in the bottom of your mixer. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Add the salt and the flour, one cup at a time, until it is well incorporated. Mix on high for 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

Melt the butter and pour half of it into a jelly roll pan (large cookie sheet).

Place the dough in the center of the pan. Let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes.  Spread the dough out flat onto the pan until it reaches all of the edges.

Pour the other half of the butter onto the dough. Spread it around with your hands. Sprinkle seasonings and cheese of choice on top.

Using a pizza cutter, cut breadsticks into desired length and width.

Put the pan into a 170 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes. The breadsticks should rise about 1 inch.  Turn you oven up to 350 and bake for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

When they come out of the oven let them sit and rest again for about 5 minutes. Then redefine your cutting lines with the pizza cutter.
