Joy of Cooking's Easy Bread sticks

Here's a recipe for bread sticks to go with the lasagna. I used whole wheat flour because my husband read on a website that white flour is really bad for you and now every time I use it - there's comments I could just do without. So, if you don't have an opinionated spouse, feel free to use white flour. :)


1 cup of water hot enough to heat the yeast (105 -115 degrees)
1 package of active dry yeast
3 cups of flour split in half
2 tablespoons of soft butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar

  1. Add yeast to hot cup of water. Let dissolve.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups of flour, butter, salt and sugar. Mix well.
  3. Add dissolved yeast to flour mixture. Beat for three minutes.
  4. Add remaining flour. Knead until the dough is not sticky. 
  5. Cover dough. Let rise until doubled.
  6. Separate dough into bread stick size pieces. Place on greased baking sheet and let rise again until doubled.
  7. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until brown.
  8. Baste with butter and garlic salt if you like. :)
