No-Knead Bread Sticks
Mix, stir, let rise once, form the bread sticks, bake, eat and enjoy! These homemade bread sticks are just that easy.
1 (0.25-ounce) packet active dry yeast, or 2 1/4 teaspoons
5 cups all-purpose flour - divided use
1 1/3 cups warm water
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg white, beaten
2 tablespoons coarse salt
2 tablespoons sesame seed
- Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Stir in oil, honey, salt, and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in the remaining 3 cups of flour, scraping the dough from the side of the bowl, until a soft dough forms. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
- Stir down the dough by beating about 25 strokes. Turn onto a floured surface and divide into 24 equal parts. Roll and shape each part into a rope.
- Place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg white and sprinkle with coarse salt or sesame seed.
- Bake in a preheated 300°F (150°C) oven until the crust is deep golden brown and crisp, about 15 minutes. Immediately remove from the baking sheet.
Makes 24 bread sticks.
