They are so popular all over the world and It never crossed my mind to make them from scratch until lat week all i was craving was a breadstick but there was none in the cupboard, so I decided to make them, and boy am I glad I did, these breadstick are better than the store bough variety and the best thing about them is you can customise them to suit your taste buds.

1) 1 teaspoon salt
2) 1 teaspoon sugar
3) 1 teaspoon dry active yeast
4) 2 cups plain flour
5) 1 cup warm water

1) Combine the water, sugar and yeast together and leave to bubble for 10 minutes
2) Once it turns into a bubble mixture add the salt and flour in sections with an electric whisk until all the flour has been incorporated (you may want to switch to a spoon or spatula when the dough become very thick)
3) Leave the dough to rise in a warm area covered with a cloth for 30-40 minutes
4) Once risen, roll out and cut in 1 inch strips
5) Roll these strips into sausage shape rolls and place on a greased baking dish
6) cover your breadsticks with a cloth and leave to rise for a further 10 minutes
7) Once risen spread butter over the tops of the breadsticks and sprinkle with salt
8) Bake in a pre heated oven at 350 degrees or gas mark 4 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
9) Once baked simply enjoy
