Bread Sticks

Summer holidays mean hungry kids who want something interesting 10 times a day. These bread sticks make quite a lovely snack with some cheesy dip or tomato salsa.

The recipe has been adapted from King Arthur Flour’s blog. And I think you are going to see quite a few bread recipes from there. It is such an amazing blog and the breads do turn out brilliant.

Did I tell you this doesn’t need kneading and you just need to let it rise once.

Recipe Notes


Oven temperature and time may vary. Bake until the top looks a light golden brown.

These taste best when served warm and fresh out of the oven.

I used a combination of herbs like oregano, basil, parsley etc. You can choose to add any flavours to suit your taste buds.

Happy Baking

  1. Akila, my breads do not turn out well and I was on the verge of giving up. Picked this one and tried. Oh man, its yum. Better than Dominos. You are a Star Akila. Your recipes are simple and super tasty.

  2. Hi, I have a question. Normally we first mix yeast, water and sugar. Then we add to the flour mixture. But you have mentioned to mix all together. Will that be okay? will the dough rise properly?

    • Hi Sunita. I have used instant yeast here. Instant yeast can be added directly to the flour. But yes if you use active dry yeast you need to mix it with water and sugar and allow it to froth before adding it

      • Thanks for your response. One more query, do we have to keep for double rising. I mean first if its risen then punch it and keep it for second time?? or once risen the dough will be enough

        • Yes please follow as mentioned in the recipe. Some recipes require just one rise. But most need to be proofed twice
