Jalapeno Breadsticks Recipe

Step 1

Saute onion in butter over medium heat until lightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 2

Lightly grease three large baking sheets and sprinkle them with cornmeal. Sprinkle yeast over warm water in a mixing bowl. Let stand until yeast is dissolved, then stir in sugar, salt, chopped jalapenos, sauteed onion, buttermilk and 2 cups of the flour. Beat mixture well. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

Step 3

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead about 5 minutes. Place in a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until double, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

Step 4

Punch down dough and divide into 4 equal parts. On a floured surface, roll out one part dough to form an 8" x 8" square. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the square into 8 equal strips. Place the strips onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining portions of dough. Let rise uncovered (1 hour or more for light, airy breadsticks; 30 minutes for a denser, chewier texture).

Step 5

Bake in a preheated 400F oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
