Bread Sticks

I absolutely love carbs. The week after we got married I decided to make spaghetti and bread sticks for Halloween dinner. It's the traditional Halloween food at my house and I really wanted to instill traditions in our new marriage. I spent hours in the kitchen making bread sticks from scratch and I was so pleased with how they turned out. After Jack took his first bite he asked me very politely not to make bread sticks again. I give him a hard time about it now and it's kind of funny, but I rarely do make bread sticks anymore. When I came across this recipe I knew I seriously had to try them though. These are amazing! I absolutely love the topping and Jack couldn't get enough of them. He even gave me permission to make them as many times as I want. Considerate right?

Bread Sticks
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp. Sugar
3-4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. parsley

Combine yeast, water and sugar. Let yeast sit until bubbly. Add flour and salt until dough is soft. Let rise. When double, punch down and spread into a large greased cookie sheet. Mix together topping and spread over bread sticks.

Let rise again until fluffy. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Cut into 24 bread sticks.

1 bread stick = 3 points (points plus)
