Introduction: Bread Sticks Tool
For making a simple kitchen tool for forming bread sticks you need:
- a plastic bottle;
- a plastic bag suitable for containing food (I used a freezer bag);
- knife and scissors.
First, cut the upper part of the bottle where shown. Then cut out one of the edges of the plastic bag.
Second, insert the cut edge of the bag through the bottle neck. Make a whole in the bottle's cap (I used the knife by making circular movements, you may use something else).
Step 3, make the dough (should be a bit slimy so you can push it out through the cap's whole).
I made a simple dough: water, oil, salt, a little sugar, yeast. Waited about half an hour for the yeast to do its magic.
On this step I closed the cap on the bottle leaving the bag's edges out. Then I loaded the dough and squeezed it out, making a nice dough trail. So, you do row after row till the baking tin is filled. Bake in a preheated oven and when golden take out. You can sprinkle with some water and cover with a table cloth (that will prevent the sticks to become too crispy).
The sticks are ready! Your kitchen tool could be cleaned and used again (just use a new bag).
