Sourdough Crispy Breadsticks

by - June 20, 2020

When I have too much of sourdough discard, I will make it into crackers or bread sticks.  I used the same recipe of Herbed Sourdough Crackers to make this crispy breadsticks.  But, I increased the oil by a little.

Sourdough Crispy Breadsticks Recipe 


300g sourdough discard
80g butter, soften or room temperature or Olive Oil

Dried ingredients:
180 all purpose flour 
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp baking powder
4 tsp herbs de Provence or any mixed dried herbs of your choice
2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1 Tbsp chia seeds (optional)

  1. In a bowl of mixer, combine all dried ingredients, add in sourdough discard and butter or oil. Mix with paddle attachment until all well combined. Shape into a ball and cover with cling film and rest for 30 minutes.  You may also leave in the fridge overnight and bake the next day.  
  2. Preheat oven to 180C and lined the baking trays.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a clean floured surface and cut into 3 portions. Shape each dough into a square dish. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1 - 1.5 mm approximately.  
  4. Cut into thin strips 11 - 12 cm long and 1.5 cm wide with a pizza cutter or knife. Twist each strip and arrange on the prepared baking tray.  
  5. Bake at preheated oven for 10 - 13 minutes or until lightly golden brown and crispy.  Rotate the pan half way of baking.
  6. Transfer to a cooling rack and repeat baking with the rest of remaining dough.
  7. Keep the bread sticks in an airtight container.
