Bread Mix Bags

My mom used to make these bread mix bags all the time and keep them ready for breadsticks at a moment’s notice. I even took some to college with me. They were very handy. Man, I love those warm breadsticks, especially with butter spread on top. Although, it is rather annoying that you have to add gluten and dough enhancer as part of the recipe. And I will say that last time I made the bags, it didn’t seem like it was enough yeast. I think I’d just add a whole packet of yeast (which is about 2 1/4 tsp. if I remember correctly).

And I wouldn’t try making this gluten free. Haha, especially since it specifically calls for adding gluten.

Make it a meal with:
