My Family Loves These Bread Sticks

I've been making these bread sticks for my family for years. I came up with them on my own, but the original dough recipe is the same one I use for my pizza dough. If you don't have a bread mixer, you can still make these, just mix by hand, and you don't have to let them rise if you don't have time. This dough is very forgiving and is very fast to make. These are wonderful hot out of the oven and they warm up pretty well too!

Bread Sticks

2 cups hot water
2 tablespoons yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
4-6 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
Seasoning Salt
Garlic Powder

Pour the hot water into a mixer fit with a bread hook. Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water. Cover the mixer with a towel and let sit for 5 minutes. Add 3 cups of flour and turn the mixer on. Add more flour to make a dough that is not real sticky. Let knead for 8 minutes. If you don't have a bread mixer, just skip this step, it will still turn out good. After it's done kneading, remove the dough hook, cover the bowl with a towel and set on top of the stove with the oven set at 425 degrees. Let rise for 15-30 minutes, depending on how much time you have.

Put 1/2 cup of butter on a cookie sheet and set it in the oven until the butter melts.

Roll out the dough onto a floured surface to about 1/2-3/4 inches thick. Cut the dough with a pizza cutter to make bread sticks. Dip each bread stick in the butter and arrange on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with garlic powder and seasoning salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
