Bread Machine Italian Breadsticks with RoulPat and SilPat

For several months now I’ve heard family and friends talk about how much they just love using their Silpat baking mat. Personally, I wasn’t convinced I needed it until I got tired of buying rolls of parchment paper and covering my baking sheets in non-stick cooking spray that often fail at actually being “non-stick”.

Then the folks at Silpat reached out to me and offered me a few of their products to try out. Being the baking loving mama I am, I started with the Roul’Pat which is designed as a non-stick countertop workstation mat. It’s much like the Silpat except the backing allows it to stay put on the counter. I used it to knead and roll Italian bread stick dough. Surprisingly, the dough didn’t stick to the mat at all. The only downside to half size Roul’Pat is the size. It’s great for small recipes and small kitchens, but I tend to get a big messy and work with larger batches. Of course this just means I have a good excuse to buy the large size mat.

Now for baking the bread I used the SILPAIN baking mat specially designed for bread. Unlike the Silpat, this mat has a more mesh-like design allowing moisture to seep below the bat and giving you a crispy bottom on your bread. With the bread sticks I was making, I also used the SILPAIN as a place for them to rise so they could go from the counter to the oven.

The bottom on the breadsticks came out a beautiful golden brown that typically comes out more on the burnt side when I’m just using a cooking spray.

In addition to the Silpain and RoulPat mats, I also find myself using the Silpat with just about everything. It was even handy for the homemade fruit leather.

Cook Time
Total Time
Type: Bread
Serves: 12 sticks
  • 1 cup warm water (110 - 115 degrees F)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed (room temperature)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat white flour
  • 2 cups self rising white flour

  • 2 - ¼ teaspoons bread machine yeast
  1. Layer the ingredients in your bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions.
  2. Run the dough cycle.
  3. Remove dough and cut into 12 equal pieces. (I found it helpful to cut the dough in half, then half again and then 3 parts per section)
  4. Roll each ball of dough into a 10 inch rope and place on a non-stick baking sheet.
  5. Cover and allow the breadsticks to rise for 30 minutes in a warm place.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F while the breadsticks are rising.
  7. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Serve plain or brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt.

    Silpain Half Size – cookies … but I must try this recipe. I have a major love for my bread machine and always look for new excuses to use it!!

  7. TawndaM says

    the Silpat would get the most use here… maybe now, I can perfect those shaped breads that always fail to come off the pan…

  11. Lyn says

    I’d probably use the Silpat the most often, but I’m sure the Silpain and Roul’Pat mats would be used frequently.

  12. says

    I’d love the Silpat – when I read your fruit leather recipe the other day, I wanted to go out and buy one right then, and would love to try it!

  13. Diane Sallans says

    I’d use the full size, cause if you are going to bake, you might as well make extra!

  14. april yedinak says

    I would probably use the silpat half size the most for baking cookies- I am tired of mine sticking to the pan all the time.

  15. mary fanara coleman says

    I would use the full size the most for cookies and christmas treats.

    I would definitely try your Bread Machine Italian Breadsticks
    Thanks very much, Cindi

  18. Rust says

    I think I would use the full size the most, for bread and even cookies.

  19. Diane says

    I love the Roul’Pat and the silpat I have one of each and really need at least one more of each!
    I love using them to roll out my cut out cookies dough and also for making fondant figures it’s wonderful for both!

  20. Kathy S says

    I would use the full size one the most. I bake lots of cookies and these would be great for that.

  21. asha says

    I’m going to try this recipe tonight, sure wish I had a silpat to use in my pan!

  22. Debbie Anderson says

    I think that I would use the Roul’Pat the most as I have a really small kitchen with not a lot of counter space so I have to use my kitchen table as a work space. It gets really messy when making bread or cookies that has to be rolled out. The Silpat and Silpain look interesting and would love to see what it would be like to cook on a baking mat.

  23. K says

    The Sil Pat full size would definitely get a lot of use around here!
