Garlic Bread Sticks

I made this so quick and easy recipe when I realized that I wanted bread to go with our soup.  Of course it is one of the many recipes that my kids love!  And it is also fun letting them help to!  You can give the kids a ball of dough to play with and shape!  I think next time I am going to play with this recipe a bit to make it healthy, as......well you can see it not the healthiest recipe....but way better for you than the stuff you get at a fast food place, or in a box at the grocers!   I am thinking whole wheat flour.  Does anyone have any other ideas?


See my other Quick Bread Recipes for when you don't have time for yeast breads to rise!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry parsley
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 more teaspoon garlic powder

Directions 
  1. Pre heat oven to 425.
  2. Mix flour, salt, garlic powder, parsley and baking powder.
  3. Pour in your milk and stir with a big spoon until you get a ball of dough that leaves the sides of the bowl. Gently knead the ball of dough right there in the bowl about 5 or 6 times. 
  4. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a rectangle shape. If the edges get all scraggly then use your hands to press them back up into main rectangle.  It doesn't have to be perfect.
  5. Butter you cookie sheet and sprinkle the second teaspoon of garlic powder into the pan. 
  6. Lay your rectangle of dough onto the baking sheet on top of the garlic butter.
  7. Cut the rectangle into narrow strips. 
  8. Bake at 425°, for 20 minutes. 
  9. Enjoy!

THANK YOU! These look fabulous! My mother-in-law makes something that looks similar and they are to die for. Definitely going to give these a shot.

You asked for ideas to make it healthier...I am vegan...it is a new adjustment for me, and I love garlic bread. I have had to find a way that I can have it. I keep some olive oil with a broken clove of garlic in it so that I have garlic infused olive oil. I made garlic bread with this (and it doesn't take much). I didn't tell my non-vegan husband that this is what I did, and he raved about the flavor. I do add a bit of sea salt. Maybe that is one thing you could do in addition to using WW flour. I would also substitute water for the milk.

I just want to say that I love reading your blog and getting ideas from your recipes. Keep up the brilliant work!
