Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for the week. It was so nice to see the sun this weekend and even nicer that the temperatures are inching up. I am so ready for spring! I’m not sure what you have on the menu tonight, but if you’re looking for some fresh bread to go with it, I certainly have a recipe for you. This one I found at Jamie Cooks It Up and it’s so simple and fast, and very tasty as well. These garlic breadsticks would be perfect for soups and chili’s as well as a side for a grilled steak or chicken.
Finding this recipe was great. I was surfing for an easy bread recipe that doesn’t take hours to rise and stumbled onto Jamie’s recipe. I struck gold with this one. She made this one really easy and something I can make last minute. She used Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning, which I didn’t have on hand. So I instead put together a mix of herbs and garlic powder and made my own.

|Add the salt. Add the flour 1 cup at a time until it's doughy.|
|Take half the butter and spread it on a cookie sheet. Take the dough and press it out onto the cookie sheet then top with the remaining butter. Spread evenly.|
|To make the garlic seasoning take 2 tablespoons each of garlic powder, parsley, oregano, basil and marjoram. Sprinkle it on top of the bread dough. Sprinkle the parmesan on top as well.|
|Bake in the oven at 170 for 7-10 minutes. Then kick it up to 350 degrees for an additional 12 minutes.|
These are some darn good breadsticks! I love the simplicity of this recipe and how the garlic taste stood out, but did not overwhelm me. Just add a bit of butter and these are so good. They don’t need butter, but we used it anyway. The garlic breadsticks are definitely making a reappearance the next time I whip up a batch of chili or even some minestrone soup.
