I made these the other day to go with a pan of lasagna. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pics but I will next time because they were amazing!

9 ounces of warm water (105 to 110° F)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons of garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted

Place the first nine ingredients in the bread machine in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select dough setting.

When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 20 equal portions. Shape each into a ball and then roll each into a 9-in. rope. Place on 2 greased baking sheets.

Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush with butter.

Thanks Barb!

I changed up the original recipe quite a bit. One of the things I did was added extra garlic. The original recipe called for 3 teaspoons of garlic but I LOVE garlic so I used 3 Tablespoons. If you don't like a lot of garlic, cut back on it.

Awesome! Thanks Mama! I’ve been curious about using my machine for the Dough setting, and this is it! I’ll be making these soon! Thank you so much!

I LOVE my bread machine. I never bake my bread in it because I don't like the "look" of the loaves. I just use the dough cycle, shape it, let it rise a second time and then bake it.

I'm glad you like them! They look wonderful! I made them the other night when there were just 6 of us and there weren't ANY left. I know they'll be made on a regular basis here.

I'm thinking of using this for a pizza crust this week.

OH!! Do you think it would work? I've never made homemade pizza, so if this works as crust too, I'll give it a shot! Let us know if you do it!!! :thumb:

This is a soft dough and it's very easy to work with. I think I'm gonna try it on the grill and that might crisp it up on the bottom....we'll see. If it works, I think it will make some amazing pizza.

Oh, another thing, this will probably make 2 pizzas so I'm thinking of just freezing 1/2 of it and seeing how that works too.

I really want to make these - I'm sure Jerry would love them. I don't have a bread machine, either...but I'm sure they would work fine using my KA mixer...Barb? How long did you knead the dough in your mixer? Did any of the proportions change, e.g., did you have to add any flour? Your breadsticks look just beautiful.

Karen, I did use my KA mixer. I probably added 1/4 cup more flour. I just sprinkled it in until the dough left the sides of the bowl. I let it knead for about 5 minutes. I then kneaded it by hand for a couple minutes more until smooth. Like Mama said, it is a soft dough and really easy to work with. The first rise took about 1 hour and the second rise was close to an hour also. Good luck and have fun!!
