Sometimes in life I wake up and say to myself ' Today I will do absolutely nothing'. For one day I will hand over my child to hubby and just relax, go wherever I feel and most importantly do not have to worry about my domestic help not coming to work! After just 1 hour the reality sets in. Hubby screams, '' Tell Jr. A not to smash my Laptop keys'' so I have to run after my boy to calm him down, My friend with whom I had planned to go shopping falls sick, The PC is attached by virus, so I have to be on constant calls with a host of experts to repair my software so there goes my relaxing and invariably my maid does not show up for work so I end up working for the day.
So much for planning not to do anything for the day. So at least to end the day on a positive note, I have to prepare some appetizers which would set the day for the dinner to be a good one. So, honey dipped bread sticks would be liked by all as a starter.Recipe Source: Here
3-4 slices of day old Bread, crusts trimmed
8 tbsp of Butter
4 tbsp of Honey
1/4 cup of Sesame seeds
Pre-heat oven to 170 Degree C. Cut bread slices into vertically about 1/2 " a part. Dry roast sesame seeds in a pan at low heat until lightly toasted and just light brown in color. Keep aside.
Turn off the heat and add butter on already hot pan. When completely melted add honey and stir well. Now place the bread strips in a single layer in the frying pan to soak the butter-honey liquid. Turning it over once or twice to be sure both sides are soaked. Roll the bread slices over the roasted sesame seeds and arrange in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake for 5 minutes or until lightly brown.
User Comments & Tips:
- You can use less butter and add more honey to suit your kind of taste. I like mine to be more buttery so I added double amount of butter.
- These can also be stored in an airtight container for 2 days and I can assure you it remains crispy.
