I love this recipe! My oldest sister gave it to me several years ago and I have used it so often since. I even took these breadsticks to a recipe exchange and everyone LOVED them. And now I always hear about it when my friends make them. This recipe is really easy! All you have to do is mix, form, rise, and bake. It's GREAT!

Here's what you'll need:

3 1/2 C. warm water
4 T. yeast
1 C. oil
3/4 C. sugar

Combine these ingredients and set aside for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, this will be super bubbly. Then you'll add:

3 slightly beaten eggs
1 T. salt
10 C. flour
Mix until well combined. You DON'T have to knead this dough! (Great, huh?!)
The dough will be REALLY sticky. Grease and flour 2 large jelly roll pans (about a 12"x18" pan).
Spray your hands with cooking spray then divide the dough in half, or use all of the dough for super thick breadsticks, and press into a pan until the pan is filled. Then pre-cut your breadsticks, this will make it easy to break apart once they are baked. I use a pizza cutter and just finish the edges with a knife or kitchen shears.

Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees and let dough rise for a good 5-10 minutes, then bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Brush with butter just after you take them out of the oven. Then this is what you'll get...

You can also use this recipe to make buns or rolls. Instead of pressing the dough into the pan, to make buns, roll out the dough to about 1 inch thick and cut with a buiscit cutter or anything in a large circular shape and place on a greased pan.

Let rise 15 minutes and bake 15-25 minutes at 425 degrees. Brush the tops with butter and this is what you'll get...
