Bread Twists

The Menu:
Bread Twists

The Original Recipe:
Ok, so I know the picture doesn't do the actual breadtwists any justice, but they are SO good!! I found the recipe on favfamilyrecipes.com. I will make them again, for sure, and I will use this recipe for my pizza dough from now on, too. YUM! I am not sure if it is the butter, or what, but everyone loved them! I added a bit of basil to my dough. It rolled out nice and everything. I think this is the first time I have ever successfully made pizza dough! :oP

Bread Twists

1½ cups warm water

2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. yeast

Let that sit for 5 minutes. Then add:

3½ cups flour
1 tsp Salt

Mix until smooth then let raise for 10 minutes. Roll out dough into a large square on a floured surface. Brush with melted (real) butter mixed with garlic and then sprinkle with kosher salt. Fold in half and cut into 1 inch strips. Twist and place on a cooking sheet. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes to raise. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately after baking, brush with more garlic butter and sprinkle with kosher salt and grated parmesan cheese.
Serve with marinara, alfredo sauce, or ranch for dipping.









*Dough also makes a great pizza dough, just roll out into a large circle, add your favorite toppings, and bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes
