We had spaghetti the other night for dinner and the kids wanted me to make breadsticks. I was a little short on time so I pulled out this recipe that I have been wanting to try that only needs to be raised once. They turned out really great and were way simple. These are great with pasta but would be just as good to go along side a big bowl of soup.

1 T instant yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 T. butter, softened
2 T. sugar
1 T. salt
4 1/4 cups flour
5 T. butter,melted
3/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp dill weed
Parm cheese for sprinkling

Mix the water, butter, sugar, and salt in you mixer. Add the instant yeast and flour and mix until well combined and a smooth soft dough is formed. You may need to add a little bit more flour. (if using regular yeast activate in the warm water then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well) Place on a floured surface and roll into a 2 foot long log. Cut into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a 7 inch long breadstick and place on a greased cookie sheet two inches apart. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all the topping ingredients together and brush each breadstick with the mixture before baking. Bake until lightly golden, about 12-15 minutes. After removing from oven, brush again with the butter mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
