30 Minute Breadsticks

1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 Tbls. honey
1 1/2 c. warm water (115 degrees)
1 tsp. salt
3-4 1/2 c. flour
1 egg, beaten

Optional Seasonings: Garlic Salt, Sesame seeds, Poppy seeds, Parmesan Cheese, Salad Supreme

In a large mixing bowl soften yeast and honey in warm water. Add salt; blend. Add flour gradually, blending in until dough pulls away from sides of bowl and forms a ball. Divide dough into 24 pieces. Roll each piece between hands to make sticks about 10 inches long (about 1/2" in diameter). Place crosswise on 2 large greased baking sheets, not touching so sides will be crispier, (Dough can be divided into 12 pieces and placed on one pan to make thicker and softer sticks.) brush with beaten egg; sprinkle with desired seasonings. Allow to rise 10-15 minutes, if desired, but not necessary. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven 10-15 minutes until browned.

These REALLY were quick bread sticks. However, next time I will smother them with butter and Garlic salt. Mine lacked a little in flavor. But once again...they were quick. I think we were all a little disappointed because they looked just like Olive Garden's Breadsticks, but they didn't taste like it. Boo!
