    1. Dissolve 1 1/2 teaspoons of the sugar with the yeast in 1/2 of the warm water in a bowl. Let stand until yeast begins to foam, about 5 minutes.
    2. Beat flour, oil, egg, salt, remaining sugar and remaining warm water into yeast mixture until smooth, adding more flour if needed to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a floured work surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes.
    3. Place dough in an oiled bowl, turning once to cover completely with oil. Cover bowl with a damp towel and place in a warm area until dough is doubled in size, about 40 minutes.
    4. Grease a baking tray.
    5. Punch dough down and turn onto a floured work surface. Divide dough into 18 pieces and shape each into a 15cm rope. Arrange dough pieces on the prepared baking tray about 5cm apart; cover with a towel or cling film and let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes.
    6. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Remove cover from dough.
    7. Bake breadsticks in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
    8. Whisk butter and garlic salt together in a bowl; brush over each breadstick. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each. Serve warm.

    Tip

    You can decrease the amount of sugar in this recipe, using just the 1 1/2 teaspoons used in step 1, then omitting or reducing the rest.
