  3. Gradually add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  4. Beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  5. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
  6. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  7. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 20 to 40 minutes.
  8. (With RapidRise Yeast, cover kneaded dough and let rest on floured surface 10 minutes. Proceed with recipe.) Punch dough down.
  9. Remove dough to lightly floured surface; divide in half.
  10. Roll each half to 16 x 12-inch rectangle.

  13. Place sticks, slightly apart, on 2 large greased baking sheets.
  14. Cover; let rest 15 minutes or until risen slightly.
  15. Brush breadsticks with egg whites.
  16. Sprinkle with herbs, seasoning salt, or mixed peppers.
  17. Bake at 400oF for 20 minutes or until golden, switching positions of sheets halfway through baking for even browning.
