Whole Grain Breadsticks
Whole Grain Recipe
Breadsticks sweetened with honey and flavored with dry minced onion, sesame or caraway seeds or coarse salt - your choice. Whole Wheat and white flour are the grains.
1 package dry yeast (or 1 cake compressed)
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup warm water
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour (as needed)
2 to 3 tablespoons dry minced onion
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Whole sesame or caraway seeds or coarse salt
Add yeast and honey to warm water in a large bowl. When it bubbles, add salt, whole wheat flour, onion, and enough white flour to make a soft dough. Knead till smooth and elastic. Let rise till doubled, about an hour.
Punch down, and divide into 16 equal pieces. Roll each into a long bread- stick shape and place on a baking sheet sprayed with Pam (or the like). You will need two large baking sheets to hold the breadsticks. Let rise until light, about 1/2 hour.
Brush with egg white and sprinkle with seeds or coarse salt. Put a pan of hot water on the floor of your oven. (This helps make a crisp crust.)
Bake breadsticks in preheated 400 degrees oven for about 20 minutes.
If you make these in advance, reheat briefly in a hot oven before serving. You can add other herbs such as dill, parsley, basil, whatever, if you like.
