About this recipe: Made in the food processor, these breadsticks are packed with garlic and Parmesan cheese. Serve with pasta, soup and salads.
I only had regular yeast on hand so I changed the procedure a little to compensate. I dissolved my regular yeast in the warm water with a half teaspoon of the sugar. Once the yeast was bubbly, I then mixed the dough ingredients in my Kitchenaid with the dough hook since I'd rather wash that than the food processor. I followed the rest of the directions as written, though I used garlic powder instead of fresh minced. I also put a little garlic powder in the melted butter brushed over the sticks. THe breadstickes turned out very nice. - 10 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I don't have a food processor so I first dissolved the yeast in the water and then added the remaining ingrediants, mixing and kneading until it felt right. I did add some onion/garlic powder to the dough due to the bland complaints. Finally, when it came time to bake, I did without the butter/parm topping until after they had been baking for 12min. Pulled them out, added the butter and parm and baked again for a few more min until they were lightly brown. These looked GREAT, the texture was WONDERFUL (nice and fluffy), but the taste? Well, there really was no taste. So they didn't taste bad but I couldn't taste them being good either. Plain white bread has more taste. If I could figure out a way to add some more taste, I would make these again because they looked wonderful. I'll put these in my "make again on a day I'm feeling creative" pile...try to figure out how to help these otherwise wonderful breadsticks. - 26 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These turned out great! I too let my bread machine do the work, and they were wonderful! I agree with the other review that you need to be careful to watch them in the broiler...they brown really fast. A keeper! - 21 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
