This recipe was entered in our We ♥ Local Cornmeal recipe contest by Carolynn O'Donnell. Carolynn says,"Grissini is generally made with durum wheat, but I substituted cornmeal." They turn out great!
Mix warm water, sugar and yeast. Set aside.
Mix flour, cornmeal, salt, and parmesan together.
Knead together all ingredients.
Put well-kneaded dough ball in bowl and cover. Let dough rise until doubled in size. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut dough into walnut-sized sized pieces (about 1/2 oz each) and roll into sticks about the thickness of a pencil.
Arrange sticks onto sheet tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes, rotating about halfway through. Breadsticks/grissini should come out slightly brown, but not too dark.
