Italian Herb Breadsticks are the perfect accompaniment to any meal but my favorite way to enjoy them is dipped in soup!
I am a bread lover and a pan of hot, fresh, breadsticks is the perfect companion to any dinner. These Italian Herb Breadsticks are soft and come together quickly thanks to Rapid Rise Yeast. And the Italian seasoning gives them a ton of flavor too.
You start by lining a a 9×13 pan with parchment. Then, you mix together the remaining ingredients. Spread your soft and slightly sticky dough in the bottom of the pan. And use a pizza cutter to cut through the dough creating 1 inch wide long breadsticks. After baking you will cut again along these same lines.
The bread needs to rise for about 50 minutes. So you have time to get the rest of dinner prepared. These herb bread sticks bake in the oven for about 25 minutes so they can be warm and ready at the same time as your dinner. After baking, brush them with some melted butter and sprinkle with some more Italian herbs. And get ready to enjoy soft and delicious homemade herb breadsticks.
