4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbsp sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 packages active dry yeast

¼ cup olive oil or salad oil

1 ¼ cups boiling hot water

1 egg white beaten with 1 tbsp water

Coarse salt (optional)

Sesame seeds or poppy seeds (optional)

Methods :

1.) Mix 1 cup of flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a large bowl of electric mixer. Stir well.

2.) Add oil and then gradually stir in hot water.

3.) Beat the mixture at medium speed for 2 minutes.

4.) Add 1/2 cup more of flour and beat at high speed for 2 minutes.

5.) Stir in 1 ½ to 2 cups of the remaining flour to your mixer (if it is a heavy duty model) or use a wooden spoon to make soft dough.

6.) Flour a board and turn the dough out to the board.

7.) With floured hands, knead it to a smooth ball.

8.) With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 20 equal pieces for 16-inch sticks, or 16 pieces for 20-inch sticks, depending on the size of pan and oven.

9.) Roll each piece of dough into rope-like that is 16 or 20 inches long.

10.) On an oiled baking sheet, arrange the long dough about 1 inch apart, and roll it to grease all sides of dough.

11.) At this point, you can decide between storing the dough in the freezer for later consumption or bake it immediately. If you want to keep it for later use, cover the dough tightly with clear plastic wrapper and freeze it. You can keep it frozen in this plastic wrapper up to 4 weeks.

12.) When you want to cook it, remove the frozen sticks from the freezer 30 minutes before you plan to bake them.

13.) Arrange the frozen dough sticks about 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet or foil-topped oven rack.

14.) Cover and let it thaw at room temperature. This will take about 15 minutes.

15.) Leave the dough sticks at a warm place with cover. Let it rise until puffy which should take about 15 minutes.

16.) Using a soft brush, brush each stick with egg-white water mixture.

17.) Sprinkle lightly with coarse salt, poppy seeds or sesame seeds. You can also just leave it plain.

18.) Bake in a 375°F (190°C) oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.

19.) Your extra long bread sticks are now ready to be served.

      I did make these on Halloween(yesterday), to go with my salad, for lunch. I just used salt on them right after they came out of the oven! I wanted to have them for breakfast, but was too lazy in the morning. They were my treat! They are so easy and my gosh! I love these breadsticks! This recipe is now written in the margin of my favorite cookbook and that is reserved for the recipes that I want my girls to have when I am not here anymore! Thank you! I may be stealing your other recipes, as well! Definitely great for soup, spaghetti or even a nice hot bowl of chili! Thank you again! When I want some comfort food, will be making these and will forget about the salad!
