Very Casual Italian Herb Breadsticks

Casual breadsticks because I don't really have exact baking times, measurements or ingredients...
...So easy to make...you really can't mess these guys up...even with my laid back recipe.

I wrote out the ingredients for a great big batch.
I was able to make 35 breadsticks and 2 small loaves of bread.
Freeze what you don't use...you'll be happy to have the leftovers!

Toss in bowl...
3 T. yeast
3 1/2 cups of warm/hot water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup of olive oil {or any cooking oil}
2-3 Tablespoons of Italian herbs {I used a blend..garlic, thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil}
1/2 cup honey or sugar

Add 7 cups of flour...one cup at a time {add a little extra flour if your dough is too sticky}

Knead in mixer for 5 minutes.
Let rise 30-45 minutes
Roll out dough into breadsticks {remember...they double in size in the oven!}
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes...{or until golden brown}
Brush with melted butter. You can even sprinkle a little garlic powder on top.

Serve with soup.pasta.salad...your options are endless.
Enjoy! XxOo
