- 1 ⅝ cup of flour
- 7g dry yeast
- 3g salt
- 180ml warm milk
- 45g butter
- 1 egg
- 125g shredded cheese
- 3 tbsp chopped parsley
- Softened butter
- Egg wash
Preparing the Dough
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour with salt, creating a well in the center.
- Add the dry yeast, warm milk, butter, and egg into the well. Whisk to combine all the liquids and gradually start incorporating the flour from the sides.
- As the dough begins to form in lumps, knead it thoroughly until it becomes smooth and forms a ball. Set the dough aside for about 1 hour to allow it to rise.
Assembling the Breadsticks
- After the dough has risen, cut it into quarters. Roll each piece into a ball and then roll it out into a rectangle.
- Brush two of the rectangles with softened butter, then sprinkle shredded cheese and chopped parsley on top. Cover each of these with another two rectangles of dough.
- Roll the layered rectangles lightly with a rolling pin and cut them into strips.
- Take pairs of strips and sandwich some more softened butter in between them.
- Twist each pair of strips, creating a twisted effect, as shown in the video or your preferred design.
Baking the Breadsticks
- Place the twisted breadsticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and set them aside for an additional 20 minutes to rest.
- Before baking, brush the breadsticks with an egg wash to give them a beautiful golden finish.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for approximately 25 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
- Once baked to perfection, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.
