 From:    Annice Grinberg (VSANNICE@WEIZMANN.weizmann.ac.il)
 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.
