Jana’s Amazing Breadsticks


  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 5 Tablespoons oil
  • 6 cups flour divided
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter 3/4 cup
  • Parmesan
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Garlic Salt


  1. Combine 1/2 cup of warm water with yeast and set aside to do it's magic.
  2. Mix hot water, sugar, salt, oil, and 3 cups of the flour in your mixer and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the yeast and the rest of the flour and mix in mixer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Melt about 1 1/2 sticks of butter in the microwave. Pour enough of the butter to cover the bottom of a large cookie sheet, about half of it.
  5. Next, roll dough into a rough rectangular shape to fit on the cookie sheet.
  6. Carefully, place the dough in the sheet pan and stretch to fit. (I rolled my dough out on a rolling mat. Once it was big enough, I placed the sheet pan upside down on the dough, then flipped the whole thing over and peeled off the rolling mat.)
  7. Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough in half, width-wise, then into 1" breadsticks, length-wise.
  8. Brush the rest of the butter on the top of the breadsticks.
  9. Sprinkle with garlic salt, Parmesan, and Italian seasoning.
  10. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
