Sesame Breadsticks


  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (plus a little to drizzle the dough with)
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
  • 3-5 tablespoons sesame seeds
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Stir in remaining ingredients, the dough should be fairly soft. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Knead for 3-5 minutes. Let rise for 45-60 minutes.
Punch down dough and knead for a minute on a flour-sprinkled surface. Roll out into a 15x8 inch rectangle. 

Cut into strips, around ¾ inch wide. (I used a pizza cutter for this)

Put sesame seeds into a baking dish or jelly roll pan. Place a strip of dough onto sesame seeds and gently roll it, coating it with sesame seeds and smoothing it into a breadstick shape. 

Repeat with all the strips of dough. Place on baking sheets and let rise for 25-30 minutes. 15 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for around 20 minutes, until lightly golden.
