Butlins, Minehead

Story location: Home / Blog / holiday /

We decided to go on a short Christmassy bread to Butlins. We were there for 3 days and there really wasn't any need to leave the site. We had a brief walk along the seafront towards town but the rest of the time was spent playing the arcades (mainly the 2p waterfall games), watching shows, going swimming or going on the fairground rides.

Sourdough Breadsticks

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /

The breadsticks were made using the same basic recipe as my sourdough pizza. I made twice as much pizza dough and split the mixture in two. One half was further divided in two and left to rise for tonight's pizza. The other half had an extra tablespoon of olive oil and some mixed seeds kneaded in. I left the breadstick dough for a couple of hours to start to rise before I made the breadsticks themselves.

Breadsticks before cooking

To make the breadsticks, I broke off small portions of the dough, rolled them out and cut them into strips. I rolled the strips individually, based on the instructions given here.


Some of the breadsticks were left plain, others were flavoured with smoked sea salt, smoked paprika, and finally salt and pepper. I cooked them for about 20 minutes at gas mark 4. The actual timing seems quite important since some came out quite a bit darker than others.
