Talking about the seeds – to make these easy homemade breadsticks you can use poppy seeds, chia seeds, caraway seeds, white or black sesame seeds. Sunflower seeds or pine seeds work also well. I used a mix of seeds to make Sweet Chili Puff Pastry Breadsticks that are also popular in our house.

How to make these easy homemade breadsticks:
To save time use a rectangular pre-rolled puff pastry sheet. Brush the pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle with seeds of your choice.
Now slice the pastry into any length you like just make sure you cut them thin. I love using a pizza cutter for this as it is the quickest and easiest way to do it.
Transfer them onto a baking tray lined with silicone mat or baking paper.
Place the in a preheated oven and bake until they are golden brown and puffed up. The baking time may vary – depending on the thickness of your puff pastry sheet and package instructions. If you like trying new things, then you can make your own puff pastry.
Good to know before making these easy homemade breadsticks
- I get about 40 breadsticks out of my pastry sheet. They are usually about 6-inch (15cm) long. Now the amount of breadsticks you get out of this recipe will depend on the size of you pastry.
- Make sure you start with preheating the oven first as the prep will be pretty quick.
- 10-15 minutes should be all it takes to bake these. Towards the end they can go pretty fast from pale to being burnt so just keep an eye on them.
