let’s party: breadsticks with cashews and sunflower seeds

Happy New Year from The Forest Feast! Out here in the woods, the celebrations continue so I am making these breadsticks for a gathering this weekend. They are super easy, and will wow your guests when served warm, fresh out of the oven. You can buy pizza dough, or make your own.

Ingredients
  • 1  package refrigerated pizza dough (approx 14 oz)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 – 3 tablespoons seeds or nuts, chopped (I used cashews and sunflower seeds)
  • Coarse salt

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease two large baking sheets. Unroll pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Using your hands, shape dough into a 12×9-inch rectangle. Brush the dough with some of the egg. Sprinkle with seeds and lightly sprinkle with salt. Use a floured long knife or floured pizza cutter to cut dough crosswise into 1/4- to 1/2-inch wide strips.

2. Place strips on prepared baking sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 24 breadsticks.
