Hey, another Thinkfood recipe! (I swear I’m gonna catch up some day)
The first question that came to mind before making this recipe: What the heck is Grissini?
So, I searched the internet to find an answer. I found out that Grissini are thin crunchy breadsticks that are often served as an appetizer at Italian restaurants.
Well, my very first bread making experience. Honestly, it was easier than I thought it would be. This also means that my irrational fear of recipes involving yeast may, in fact, might have come to an end.
For toppings, I chose to put sesame seeds on some and flaxseeds on others. My husband suggested that salt would have been a good choice for topping as well.
I’m not a huge fan of these crunchy breadsticks – but that isn’t anything against this variety in particular, just in general I don’t really like them all that much. I definitely prefer the doughy Olive Garden style breadsticks.
Ease: B+, the actual mixing is done in a food processor, so that is no big deal. After the dough has risen, you have to flatten it, slice it, and put your choice of toppings on it, which is a bit time consuming.
Taste: C+, I don’t know. I’m just not really a fan. They don’t taste particularly bad, just blah. Maybe if they were dipped in cheese or something they would have a better chance.
Would I make them again? Its too bad that I didn’t really like them, because they look super fancy when they are done, and they don’t really take too much work. I just don’t really like them.
