Easy Bread Sticks

I learnt  this easy way of making fresh bread at home in a matter of 30 minutes.Easy bread sticks are made using store bought bread dough.My Checkers always has stock in their fridges closest to the bakery and if you look at the pic below you will see how cheap it is.

Plus there isnt much mess.Simply take out of the bag and divide dough in two.For a family of four half the dough is perfect. Dust your area with some flour and roll out into a  rectangle.

Place 3 – 4 tbs of butter or margarine in the microwave for 30 seconds and then add garlic powder and stir.Using a bastig brush cover your rolled out dough with the butter mixture.


Divide dough in the middle and begin to slice dough into long finger like bread sticks.Place in a preheated oven on 180C for 20-25 minutes.Remove from once they are done and brush them again with the butter mixture (Optional – add fresh or dried parsley to mixture before you brush it one).

They best served warm but really they great anytime.

If you have been following my #soupseries you will know they ideal to accompany any soup instead of croutons.

Kalács – not sure how you say it – but its amazing!


I found this amazing recipe thanks to Julia’s amazing blog ; http://nadelundgabel.wordpress.com/

Julia had come across the recipe via Viviane’s blog @ Down Under.

Thank you – Thank you to the both of you.I definitely have a hit on my hands with my household test tasters.

I did tweak it Portuguese style  – and added lots of finely chopped garlic.The next time I’ll take it even further and add loads of chouriço.

I did make a few changes , I substituted parsley for the onion and bacon (like Julie) for the Pancetta.

It was really easy to make and it looks beautiful.This is a definite for the Boys Birthday Party.

Thank you once again (Viviane and Julia).
