1 pkg dry yeast (or 1 cake compressed)
1 T honey
1 c warm water
1 1/2 t salt
1 c whole wheat flour
2 c white flour (as needed)
2-3 T dry minced onion
1 egg white, lightly beaten
sesame or caraway seeds or coarse salt
Add yeast and honey to warm water in a large bowl. When it bubbles, add
salt, whole wheat flour, onion, and enough white flour to make a soft dough.
Knead till smooth and elastic. Let rise till doubled, about an hour.
Punch down, and divide into 16 equal pieces. Roll each into a long bread-
stick shape and place on a baking sheet sprayed with Pam (or the like).
(You'll need two large baking sheets to hold the breadsticks. Let rise till
light, about 1/2 hour. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with seeds or coarse
salt. Put a pan of hot water on the floor of your oven. (This helps make a
crisp crust.) Bake in preheated 400F oven for about 20 minutes.
If you make these in advance, reheat briefly in a hot oven before serving.
You can add other herbs such as dill, parsley, basil, whatever, if you like.
