Recipe: Bone Bread Sticks (with or without pepperoni marrow)

I made these for my Halloween party this weekend, and some have made their way into lunches... some have "marrow" - chopped mini turkey pepperoni - and some do not.

I have some vegetarian friends.

They are very easy and fun.

Bone Bread Sticks (with optional "marrow")

1 1/3 c water or liquid whey
3 Tbsp butter, softened
2 c whole wheat flour
2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 c sugar
2 Tbsp dry milk powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Optional "Marrow" filling:
1/2 c mini turkey pepperoni, finely chopped

Parmesan cheese or Italian seasoning for topping.

Place ingredients (except for "marrow" and topping) in a bread machine in the order specified by your machine, and set on dough cycle.

Once dough cycle is complete, separate into about 40 equal pieces.
Mine end up being about 4"-5" long
To form bones without marrow - roll pieces of dough into thin log shapes, then cut the ends with a knife and form into balls at the ends, to look like bones.

To form into bones with marrow - roll into a flat rectangle, about 10" wide.  Cover half with pepperoni bits, and then fold the rectangle over the filling.  Pinch edges to seal, and then cut into strips.

For each bone, pinch the sides of each strip to seal in the marrow, and then form into bone shapes as directed above.

Allow to rise for about 20 minutes.  Preheat oven to 375.  Spray the tops of the breadsticks with butter flavored cooking spray (or brush with butter) and top with parmesan cheese or italian seasoning.  Bake for about 15 minutes.

Pin It!
