 Hello there. I am Jamie from Jamie Cooks It Up! I’m happy to be guest posting here today at Chew On That. I write a family friendly food blog housing hundreds of fabulous recipes. I have brought a great recipe to share with you. Quick and Easy Breadsticks. These wonderful breadsticks are made from scratch and take less than an hour to prepare from start to finish. If you haven’t ever worked with yeast before, don’t worry. It’s not as difficult as you might think! Yeast can be your friend. I promise. Just follow the instructions below and you will be good to go. I hope you make these breadsticks! Hope you love them as much as my family does.

Quick and Easy Breadsticks
Yield: 36 small breadsticks
Time: 45 minutes start to finish
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
1 1/2 C warm water
1 T yeast (you may use active dry, or instant)
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
3 1/2 – 4 C flour
1/4 C butter
1/2 C grated Parmesan cheese
Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning
1. Add your yeast to 1 1/2 C warm water.
2. Throw your sugar right along there with it, stir it around  to incorporate. Pour it into your Kitchen Aid or Bosch Mixer. If you are making the recipe with out a stand mixer then dump the yeast/water mixture into a large bowl. Also, if you are using a Bosch Mixer you’ll want to double the recipe. One batch isn’t quite enough to fill up a Bosch.
3. Let the yeast/water mixture sit for about 5 minutes. It should get all nice and bubbly for you. Nice and bubbly is what you want.
4. Add the salt. Then add your flour 1 cup at a time, allowing about 30 seconds to mix or knead between each additional cup. After all of the flour is added mix on medium (if you are using a Bosch mixer, mix it on high)  for 5 minutes. Then let your dough rest for 5 minutes.
5. While the dough is resting melt your butter and pour 2 T of it onto a large jelly roll pan, or cookie sheet.
6. Place the dough on the buttered sheet and let her rest for 5 more minutes. Don’t skip this step, gals. You want to be ruler-of-the-dough. If you don’t let her rest she is not going to move like you want her to. Just trust me and let the old girl rest….
7. Press the dough out to the edges of the pan. It should be easy! Press from the middle out.
8. Pour the remaining 2 T of butter onto your stretched out dough and spread it around to cover the entire top.
9. Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning is going to be your true pal, here. The flavor is amazing! I purchase it in bulk at Costco. Sprinkle it all over the top of your dough. Then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top as well.
10. With a pizza cutter cut the dough into inch wide strips.
11. Then cut the dough lengthwise into thirds. Put the cookie sheet into a warm 170 degree oven and let the dough rise for about 10 minutes. Turn your oven up to 350 and bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until golden brown.
12. When the breadsticks are done use the pizza cutter again to redefine the cutting lines.
13. I usually take a pair of cooking scissors to the edges of the pan to clip the part the pizza cutter can’t reach.
 Vwalla! Your Quick and Easy Breadsticks! Serve these babies hot with Luscious Italian Lasagna, or White Chicken  Chili, or Italian Tortellini Soup….you won’t be sorry! I hope you’ll give them a try!
