Bread sticks

For homemade bread sticks that go well with spaghetti, chicken soup, or lasagna here is a recipe you can try.

1 1/4 cup warm water
1 tbs yeast
2 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3-4 cups flour
1/4 cup melted butter

Dissolve yeast with sugar in warm water. Next add the salt and flour and mix for three minutes. Let the dough rise for ten minutes. Roll out the dough onto a floured surface into a rectangular shape. Place onto a creased cookie sheet and cut into sticks. Spread butter on top and let rise for five more minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for twenty minutes.

A yummy twist on this recipe:
Sprinkle a little bit of dry ranch dressing mix on the dough after it has been rolled into a rectangle. Place ham or turkey and veggies on one half. Fold remaining dough over the top and make into a pocket. Bake until brown.

I love making new recipes! I made meatloaf for the first time last night. I always hated it as a kid because it had onions in it, but I really really loved the recipe I made last night... onions and all!
