Homemade breadsticks flavored with turkey pepperoni and pizza spices is easy to make at home.
This winter feels like it is lasting forever. I live in Georgia and we don’t normally get much of a winter let alone snow. Every year we hope and pray for just a little. This year I am hoping and praying for no more snow. We have 7 snows days to make up, crazy. I’m also sick of soup and stews. That never happens. Usually we have a lot of warm days in the winter when hot soups and stews just aren’t as appealing or needed. This year is seems we needed a warm bowl of comfort food everyday. So, what is a girl to do? Bake breadsticks to go with dinner; that’s what. When I was making these, I had pizza on my mind which is why they ended up with pepperoni and pizza seasonings on them.
When we have a soup or stew, I need something to dunk in that delicious gravy or broth. It’s just something I have not grown out of. I need to dip, dunk, soak a piece of bread, roll, something into that luscious sauce. The other upside of being snowed in is, there is plenty of time to let the yeast work its magic and the dough to rise. I put the dough together and placed it in a warm spot by one of our air vents. Then we went out to play in the snow for a couple of hours. Kids were sledding down our street, making snowmen and snow angels and having snowball fights. The first two times was really fun. Our neighbors were out with their kids and everyone was so jovial. By about the 5th snow day, we were all ready for the snow to go far, far away and the kids to be back in school.
We would come back in when we couldn’t take the cold anymore. My hubby would light a fire in the fireplace and I would brew up some hot chocolate or tea. The dough would be ready to be shaped into bread sticks and popped in the oven. They are really easy to make. I was worried the dough would be fiddly and hard to shape but it wasn’t. The dough behaved so nicely and the breadsticks came together in minutes. Then we could enjoy our nice hot bowl of comfort soup or stew and happily dunk our breadsticks in the liquid.
It’s amazing what a homemade breadstick can do for your dinner and mood. They remind me of my childhood and bring an easy smile to my face. They lighten the mood and bring some fun to another dinner. Once you start making your own baked goods, it is hard to stop. The glorious smell of bread or rolls baking is irresistible. It is almost as good as eating a warm slice. Yes, sometimes we just cannot wait for the bread to cool completely before we dig in. Don’t tell anyone! Try Pepperoni Pizza Breadsticks for dinner and bring some fun back to the family dinner.
