Extremely Frugal Breadsticks

Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal
It's easy to make bread sticks.

Milk 1/4 C
Water 3/4 C
Yeast 2 tsp
Oil 2 Tbsp
Sugar 1 Tsp
Flour 2-3 C
Salt 1 tsp
Warm milk and water to lukewarm (85° F).
Take 1/4 C warm water, add 2 tsp sugar, and yeast. Let sit 10 minutes, until frothy.
Mix milk, remaining water, oil, and remaining sugar.
Mix flour and salt in large bowl. Slowly pour in yeast and then liquids.
Mix thoroughly until dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
Turn out on floured surface, and knead 12 minutes.
Wash bowl, then grease.
Place dough in bowl, turning once to coat surface with grease. Cover and let rise until double in bulk, about an hour.
Punch down, and divide into 8 to 12 small balls.
Roll each ball between the palms of your hands to form a long rope. Place on greased cookie sheet, cover with damp cloth, and allow to rise until double in bulk, about 45 minutes.
Bake in a 425° F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
