Breadsticks or Hot Dog Buns

Print this Recipe


2 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp apple cider or white vinegar
2 Tbsp water
Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with tinfoil or a nonstick pad, like a Silpat, and et it aside
  3. Cut six 8”x4” squares of tinfoil. Shape each piece of foil wrapping it around a narrow rolling pin. Straighten the edges to form a long, narrow u-shaped mold
  4. Place, curved side down, on the prepared baking sheet, and repeat with the remaining squares of foil, bracing each one against the last to ensure the stay standing up
  5. Very lightly grease the insides of each mold and set aside
  6. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until beaten, and then add the oil, vinegar, and water. Stir until combined
  7. Add the bread mix and stir vigorously to combine
  8. Transfer the batter into a large zip top bag (see note). Squeeze the air out of the bag, seal the top and twist the excess plastic into a hand hold
  9. Carefully (holding the bag upside down) snip a 1” triangle off of the corner of the bag. You just made a pastry (piping) bag
  10. Pipe the batter in fat streams into the molds, dividing evenly between the six molds
  11. Brush the breadsticks with egg wash (if using; see note), and sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. Press the seeds very gently into the breadsticks to adhere
  12. Bake for 10 minutes
  13. Remove the breadsticks from the molds and line them up on the baking sheet (You can recycle your molds)
  14. Bake for an additional 4 minutes, then switch the oven to broil for 60-90 seconds to encourage browning
  15. Serve immediately
