These Italian Bread Sticks are richer than the preceding Sesame Bread Sticks, due to the higher percentage of olive oil in the dough and the inclusion of butter.

Other variations for this versatile dough are the addition of ground black pepper, sesame seeds, or a mixture of sesame, poppy, and fennel seeds.
