Directions

  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 with most bread recipes) and then adding the liquid as needed. By dumping in the entire cup of water, my dough was completely unworkable and I had to add at least an additional 1/2 to 3/4 cup of flour. They are incredibly quick to make - - - although I believe they'd benefit by some type of rising time (even 10 or 15 minutes). I'd also probably throw a little Italian seasoning and garlic powder into dough for additional flavor. After working in more flour, my *sticks* were 4oz each and as I said each one was HUGE, running the entire length of 13x9 pan. Needed additional 4 to 5 minutes of cooking. Will definitely make again and thank you for recipe.

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 already opened and almost empty, and I wanted to use it.) I think next time I will add garlic powder and perhaps some other herb(s) so that they won't be so bland. This recipe would also be good for turning these into hoagie sandwich rolls (obviously making them much bigger.)

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 bother to preheat the oven until after the bread was shaped to give them a little time to rise. I brushed with the garlic butter and topped with freshly grated parmesan just before putting it in the oven. They came out perfect. This is one of the easiest bread recipes to try, so if you are intimated using yeast, give this a whirl.

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 and parm. than called for. The family really enjoyed these...a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

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 easier to work with and they turned out great. I made these to be an appetizer to Lasagna, and we dipped them in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

This was a good recipe and was quick enough that I could make it on a work night. We'll definitely make this one again.
