Calories 154kcal


  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. yeast
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. malted/dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-3 1/2 cup flour
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Add yeast to warm water. Allow to proof (5 minutes or so, until it looks foamy). Stir in honey.
  •  In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.
  • Add water mixture to dry ingredients and mix completely. If dough is sticky, add another 1/2 c. flour.
  • Divide into 12- 16 dough balls and roll out each piece of dough like a snake. Place on a greased pan. Let raise 20 minutes.
  • Melt butter in microwave. Stir in garlic powdered and Italian seasoning.
  • Brush breadsticks with butter mixture once BEFORE baking. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Brush with butter again, DURING the baking process. 
  • Bake another 10 minutes. Brush with butter once AFTER baking. For a total of 3 times. 
  • Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese immediately after baking.



*NOTE: dry milk or malted milk works great. And if you don't have that you can leave it out. If just makes for a softer dough.
