Dairy Free Soft Italian Breadsticks.
This recipe makes soft dairy free breadsticks. I made them dairy free due to allergies at my house. We love to have breadsticks or garlic knots on spaghetti night. I used olive oil in the recipe instead of butter. When my sister makes these she brushes them with butter and sprinkles them with parmesan cheese, so if you don’t have any dairy restrictions you might want to give it a try. You can also add parsley or fresh garlic as toppings.
I used a bread machine to knead the dough like I almost always do but you can use a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook or knead by hand.
This recipe makes about 8 breadsticks depending on the size you make them. I just tried to divided the dough into 8 pieces then rolled each one out to about 6 or 7 inches long. Some ended up a little shorten then others but it’s all good.
