This weekend, for my learning project, I decided to attempt breadsticks. I chose this recipe for Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks. The dough was easy enough, kind of followed the guidelines of a pizza dough. After the dough had risen, I punched it down and cut it into two halves. I rolled each half into a rectangle and sliced the short side with a pizza cutter. I rubbed roasted garlic on each one and smothered them in butter. After cutting them, I decided to twist them a bit. This recipe did not have the breadsticks rising again, so I popped them into the oven.
The breadsticks turned out alright. I wish they had flavour kneaded into the bread just to give them a bit more flavour. Also, these were quite dense and had a lot of crunch on the bottom. I was honestly a little disappointed by these breadsticks and I will try a different recipe and some different methods next time.
Thanks for reading – it’s been a slice!
