I have been looking for this recipe forever! I knew I had it in my files somewhere but could never find it. I guess today I just got lucky and turned over the right sheet of paper and saw it. It’s written on the back of a recipe for homemade “squash rolls” which I’ll have to share with you another time.
Amish cooks enjoy “copy cat” recipes. Why go to the grocery store to buy Heinz ketchup if you can make your homemade? In this case, why go to Pizza Hut for breadsticks when you can whip them up at home. We’ve also posted Amish recipes for homemade “Pizza Hut sauce” before.
I will confess I’ve not been to Pizza Hut in a long, long time (my Dad always called it “Grease-a Hut”). But their breadsticks, if memory serves me correct, were pretty tasty. Now you can try a homemade version! The recipe that I have does not give a baking time, so you’ll just have to keep an eye on the oven and a yield was also not given.
- 1 1 /2 cups warm water
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1¼ teaspoon salt

- 3 tablespoons cheddar cheese powder
- 1 tablespoons garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon sour cream and onion
- Dissolve yeast, sugar, and salt in warm water.
- Add oil and enough flour as dough is soft but not sticky.

- Roll out in large square, cut into strips 1" x 5".
- Dip each piece into butter mixture.
- Twist and place on greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 until light brown.
