  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Dissolve yeast and 2 pinches white sugar in warm water in a bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix 4 cups flour, hot water, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt together in a large mixing bowl; pour yeast mixture into the flour mixture and mix. Add remaining flour, one cup at a time, mixing well between additions. Continue to work the mixture until you have a dough; divide dough into 2 halves. Divide each half into 12 long bread sticks and arrange onto prepared baking sheets.
  4. Pour melted butter and sprinkle Parmesan cheese and garlic powder over the breadsticks.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 13 minutes.

I love the concept and taste of these (they're huge, by the way - I could only fit 5 on a sheet). Made a half recipe as directed. I think you'd be better off starting with all the flour (as wi...

These were very good, and pretty easy. I did have to add a lot more flour (about 1 cup to 1/2 cups I would guess) than it called for because my dough was sooo sticky, but eventually it became e...

This was a good recipe. Easy to throw together. I used a gas oven and it took almost 20 minutes at the 400 (200C in my case)-- I cut the recipe in half and used 1/2 wheat flour (the bag was alre...

It must be called crazy bread but it’s crazy easy to make. I only made ¼ of the recipe, so I dissolved the yeast in all the water along with all the sugar the recipe required. Also, I didn’t b...

This was like a restaurant quality bread stick! I halved the recipe because there are only 2 of us. It made about 8 bread sticks. Only change I would make is to put butter on the bread before b...

Excellent! Made very quickly to go with pizza and salad for a birthday party. Great with a dipping sauce. I made them smaller, 32 sticks total, and shortened baking time to 8-9 minutes. Don't be...

I took them out at 13 minutes and the bottoms were burnt. There was not enough butter to make them taste like crazy bread. I did add a little olive oil to the tops. These were not as crunchy on ...

These were GREAT! So easy to make...I think it literally took 15 minutes from the time I started until I was putting them into the oven. I 1/2'd the recipe, but used more butter, garlic powder a...

My hubby said Whaat?? You made these?! (Fist bump, he totally thought I bought them!) These had a good taste. However the only thing that I would change is, to add the [shelf stable]Parmesan ch...
