I chose Homemade Whole Wheat Herbed Breadsticks as the first recipe in my One Dough, 31 Whole Grain Recipes series because these are so easy to get on the table.
As I stated before, I wanted to be able to get whole grain recipes on the table as easily as popping open a can. Having my master dough in the refrigerator I can make these quickly.
While I used 100% white whole wheat flour to make these breadsticks, you can use any of the whole grain combinations I talk about in the master dough recipe.
Now, the recipe says 1/4 of the master dough recipe. What does this mean? In this recipe, since you are making breadsticks, you really can just pull out as much as you think you need to make what you want. Simply pull off a chunk that looks like it is 1/4 of the dough and go with it!
Mixing in fresh or dried herbs imparts a delicious flavor into these breadsticks. While the recipe calls for oregano and thyme, you can use whatever herbs you’d like to compliment the meal you are preparing.
