Pizza Hut Bread Sticks

Mary(Home Steeped Hope) , Your So Good To Me....
Okay, Bread machine instructions, just for you, Bethanie! (I’ve never done it this way though, because it is SO simple by hand)
My rule of thumb with bread machines is wet ingredients and salt first, dry ingredients after, yeast LAST.
So, you’d take the following and put in pan of bread machine: IN ORDER:

1. 1 1/2 cups warm water
2. 1 tablespoon sugar (or honey–either way put it in pan at this point)
3. 2 teaspoons salt
4. 1 tablespoon melted shortening (or olive oil)
5. 4 cups flour (then make a small valley in the flour to pour your yeast into
6. 1 package active dry yeast, or it’s equivalent–2 1/4 teaspoons from the jar
Set your machine to the dough cycle and once it’s done, place the dough on a floured counter and divide in half.

**At this point, Bethanie, you need to decide if you are making them into french bread (2 loaves) or breadsticks. For French bread, see directions below with two asteriks.
For breadsticks:On greased baking sheets sprinkled with cornmeal, roll dough into rectangles, sprinkle with mozzarella (sorry no exact measurement on the cheese, I just put what our family likes) and put in oven till crust starts to turn golden brown. Start checking it at 13 minutes. Remove when done, and sprinkle with a mixture of parmesan cheese and parsley.
**Leave it alone for 10 minutes. Roll each half into a 8″x10″ rectangle. Roll up from a long side, pinching long edge to rolled one to seal. Place “seam” side down on a greased baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. With a very sharp knife, make five diagonal cuts across the top of each loaf, about 1/4 inch deep. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 400F for 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
