Picnic Snacks Ideas: Delicious and quick Grissini

These breadsticks will become your favorite finger food! Be careful, they are made with white wine, but are an ideal idea for a picnic meal.


350 g plain flour
100 ml of extra virgin olive oil
100 ml dry white wine
1 tablespoon toasted fennel seeds
1 spoon of poppy seeds
1 spoon of white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon of salt

Picnic finger food preparation - Grissini with white wine

Put up:

Place the flour, olive oil, wine, and salt in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Mix the ingredients on low until the batter is well combined and smooth. If the dough is a little dry, gradually add 2 tablespoons of water and continue mixing until the dough is smooth. Sprinkle additional flour into bowl. Place the dough in a bowl and let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a large baking tray with baking paper. Divide the dough into 14 parts (about 40g) and roll each part into a thin stick.

Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large, deep, heavy-bottomed nonstick pan. Reduce the heat and cook the sticks for 1-2 minutes on each side. Then remove them from the pan and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle them with fennel, poppy and sesame seeds so that the seeds stick to the dough. Bake the delicious breadsticks for 35-40 minutes or until golden. You can serve them with whatever dip you want.
