3 1/2CupsFlour(all-purpose flour or bread flour)
1TablespoonWhite Granulated Sugar
1 1/2TeaspoonsItalian Herb Seasoning(optional)
2TeaspoonsBread Machine Yeast
1TeaspoonLarge Crystal Salt(to sprinkle on top of the breadsticks before baking)
Place the water, olive oil and then the rest of the ingredients into the bread pan. You can make a little indent on top of the flour in order to avoid the yeast falling into the water (until the machine starts). Do not combine the salt with the yeast (as the salt can kill the yeast). Place the yeast & salt in separate parts of the bread pan.
Place the bread pan (with ingredients) into your unplugged bread machine and then plug in the machine.
Put your machine on the Dough setting and press the start button. In our Sunbeam bread machine, the kneading & rising on the dough setting takes about approximately 1:30 hours.
When your bread machine has finished, unplug the machine & pour the dough onto a cutting board. Wear oven mitts when handling the bread pan as it may be hot. However, first sprinkle some flour on the cutting board (before you pour the dough) in order to help prevent the dough from sticking to the cutting board.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Shape the breadstick dough by either cutting into thin strips or rolling into thin tubes. See the tips section below for more information on how to shape your breadsticks.
Place the dough breadsticks onto a nonstick baking sheet. Cover them loosely with plastic wrap, wet thin towel, etc. to keep dust off & to prevent the dough from drying out. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes on the baking sheet. The dough should roughly double in width during this time.
After the dough has risen and before you put the baking sheet in the oven, use a small pastry bush to coat the top of each dough breadstick with a thin layer of olive oil. Then sprinkle some large salt crystals (i.e. sea salt or coarse kosher salt) on top of each dough breadstick.
Place the baking sheet in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven when finished and let the breadsticks cool for 1 or 2 minutes on a cooling rack.
For best results, serve & eat while the breadsticks are still slightly warm.
