Breadsticks!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I came home the other evening to see that my husband had made breadsticks! I haven't had a good breadstick since going gluten-free and was excited about how good these looked (and tasted!)

These even tasted good heated up with leftovers the next day!

Since you can't really "shape" the breadsticks, he came up with the idea of using rolled parchment paper on a big cookie sheet. He used the same bread recipe that we use to make loaf bread (from here on the forum.)

I guess it could be piped, but he just "plopped" it into the parchment paper and then smoothed it out.

Mmmm...those look great! I can just taste them. They must have been delicious! :P

My breadstick recipes allow me to roll the dough so it is easy to form the sticks. There is something so gratifying about rolling dough. :)

man wish I had a bread stick recipe

How 'bout this?

Italian Breadsticks

(T = tablespoon; t = teaspoon)

2 T active dry yeast

1 T granulated sugar

1 c warm water

2 c brown rice flour

2 c tapioca flour

1/2 c defatted soy flour

3/4 c nonfat dry milk powder

1 T xanthan gum

1 T garlic powder

1 t salt

4 T olive oil

4 large egg whites

1/2 c hot water

Olive oil for rolling out dough and brushing

Freshly grated Parmesan

*I also like to add seasonings such as crushed fresh rosemary and/or oregano

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In small bowl, combine yeast and sugar with warm water (about 110F) and allow to soften about 5 min.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flours, dry milk powder, xanthan gum, garlic powder, seasonings if using and salt. Blend on low setting until combined.

4. With mixer running, slowly add the yeast mixture, oil, egg whites and hot water; mix on medium speed until a smooth dough forms, about 4-5 min.

5. Rub a small amount of oil on your hands and drizzle some on the cutting board. Divide dough into 4 equal chunks. Roll each portion of dough into a long rope, about 1/2" thick. Cut breadsticks to the desired length. Place on prepared baking sheet and let rest about 15 min.

6. Brush a small amount of olive oil on top of each stick. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake 12-15 min. until cheese begins to turn golden brown.

7. You can freeze any leftovers wrapped in foil about 3 months.

Oh, right. Sorry - I completely forgot.

Do you perchance have coconut milk powder in a health food store or anything? That would work well. I'm also trying to figure out eliminating the milk powder completely - will let you know if I have any success.

ETA: How about soy milk powder or rice milk powder? This will give you some ideas...

How about using Vance's DariFree, which is a powdered milk substitute? http://www.vancesfoo...om/darifree.htm
