We’ve enjoyed these golden brown breadsticks at numerous family gatherings over the years. The recipe is a snap to prepare using frozen dough and just five other ingredients. —Mary E. Relyea, Canastota, New York

  • Makes
    32 breadsticks


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped onions (about 2 medium)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  • In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir until tender. Stir in paprika; cool completely.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 16x14-in. rectangle. Spread onion mixture down 1 half of the rectangle. Fold dough lengthwise in half over onion mixture, forming a 16x7-in. rectangle; seal edges.
  • Cut dough lengthwise into thirty-two 1/2-in.-thick strips. Twist each strip 2 or 3 times. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Brush breadsticks with beaten egg; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 13-16 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
