For the upcoming holiday party season, appetizers are key. Dips are easy peasy as long as you find a good recipe, and here's a recipe for a dip-partner: breadsticks!

Ingredients (adapted from here for 2 dozen breadsticks):
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 package active dry yeast

1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour, divided

1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt 

1. In a medium bowl, combine the yeast, water, sugar, and 1/4 cup of flour. Stir and set aside for 10 minutes.


2. Stir in the remaining flour, olive oil, salt, and thyme and knead into a ball. Drizzle a bit of olive oil in the bottom of the bowl, place ball of dough on top, and cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour.


3. Remove dough from the bowl and roll out into a thin rectangle. Cut the dough lengthwise into thin strips.


4. Place the strips on a lightly greased baking sheet and let rise for another 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

 5. Place baking sheets in preheated oven for 10 minutes each, until browned and crisp.

6. Enjoy on their own or dipped in your favorite dip!
