Stove Top Breadsticks - No Oven Required!

Stove Top Breadsticks - No Oven Required!
These Breadsticks were a huge hit at our house! And they were a hit, again, at the potluck the next day.

There's something about a personal-sized piece of bread - great for dipping - that has tremendous appeal for kids & adults alike.

Even better - if you have the dough on hand as I nearly always do,(I use the dough from 
Simply roll out a little dough, and cut it in strips.
Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day) you can be eating fresh Breadsticks in as little as five minutes!

Even better, you can make these for about 10cents for a LARGE serving (serving being 4 breadsticks) - that's way better than the pizza delivery place - or even the grocery store.

The Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day dough is SO easy to make. Simply measure, stir, and wait. The recipe is not only on the authors' website, and in their phenomenal cookbook, but is also on the back of the Gold Medal Flour bag.

Here's How you Do it:

 Stove Top Breadsticks - No Oven Required!

Preheat a 10" nonstick skillet that has a lid*

Pull off a Plum Sized Piece of dough.
Of course, if you prefer, you can use the
Whole Wheat Dough by the same authors -
it will work just as well here.

Cook the dough in a covered, nonstick pan.

Roll it in a small oblong - I make a 6 or 7 inch circle, then just stretch it with my hand into an oblong

Cut the Dough into 4 Strips

Lay the strips in the hot non stick pan (no oil required), and cover

Allow to cook till puffy, browning on the bottom, and bubbles form on top (roughly 3 minutes)

Flip with Tongs (if you have no tongs, a spatula will work - just not quite as well)

Cover & cook on the other side (about 1 minute).

Allow to cool just enough that they don't burn your mouth.


Repeat as needed, till you & your crowd are happy!

*When a skillet lid is unavailable, I have had success with using an ovenproof plate, or a heat-proof lid from something else, like a saucepan or slow cooker. Just be careful that the top you choose is not one that might break or shatter from the heat, and use a potholder when handling it, if needed. And, with any lid, open it away from you to avoid steam burns.

These Breadsticks are great any way you might normally eat Breadsticks - with Pizza Sauce for dipping (as shown above), brushed with Garlic & Buttery Spread, Topped with Cinnamon Sugar, Dipped in Peanut Butter, or alongside your favorite soup. If you serve them with Indian food, call them "Naan Sticks!" ; )
