These breadsticks complete any meal and are also great on their own!

Homemade breadsticks are quick and easy to make. With only a few ingredients, you can have these hot, fresh, and ready by the time the rest of your meal is done being prepared and cooked.

You can also bake them as directed and then lightly fry them in a small amount of oil in a pan over the stove. This method will add an old-fashioned styled Pizza Hut breadstick taste to them.

And if you have never made yeast bread before, this is a great recipe to start with. I’ve been making this recipe since I was literally in grade school. I find kneading dough so relaxing, I hope you enjoy making them too!

  • 1 cup warm water (105-110 degrees F or 40.5-43 C)
