Serve these bone breadsticks as part of a spooky and fun Halloween dinner!


  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. yeast
  • 2 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. yeast
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil or oil of choice
  • 3-5 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Sprinkle yeast in warm water.  (The water should be very warm, but not too hot that you can't put your finger in it.)  Give it a quick stir. Add in sugar and salt. Add oil. Let sit about 2-5 minutes until the mixture is thick and bubbly.
  2. Stir in flour. Add 3 cups to start with and then add additional 1/2 cup increments. (The dough can be slightly sticky, but you want it to be soft and rollable.) Let dough rest for 10-15 minutes.
  3. On a floured surface, roll the dough out into a large rectangle, at least 1/2 inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into strips. To make bone shapes, cut 1-inch strips on each end of the  breadstick. Let rise for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Bake the breadsticks at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes. The breadsticks are done when they are a soft golden brown color. Avoid over baking.
  5. Top with melted butter and garlic powder or garlic salt. Alternatively, they are also delicious with Salad Supreme seasoning and parmesan cheese.
