    1. Fit your food processor with a steel blade. Place flour, yeast, sugar, salt, Italian seasoning, garlic, 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 15g butter in the processor; pulse to blend. Whisk together warm water, milk and egg. Start the processor and slowly pour in milk mixture into the feed tube until a ball forms around the blade. Run for 30 seconds to knead. Remove dough from processor and knead briefly by hand.
    2. Lightly oil a large bowl, place dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
    3. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a 25x30cm rectangle. Use a knife or pizza cutter to slice the dough lengthways into 10 strips, and then cut these strips in half. Brush tops of strips with 30g melted butter and sprinkle with 20g Parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise until nearly double, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 23 minutes. Turn grill on and brush breadsticks with remaining melted butter and Parmesan cheese. Grill just until cheese starts to turn light brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm.

    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)
