In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Then stir in the yeast mixture until combined and dough begins to come together. Use your hands to finish mixing the dough by kneading.
Knead the dough for 3 minutes, until dough is well combined and sticky. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Melt 1/2 cup butter and pour onto a baking sheet.
Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out into a rectangle about the size of the baking sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 1-inch-wide strips. With a strip of dough, bring the ends together so it is doubled, then twist. Roll the bread stick in the butter until coated, then place on the pan. Repeat with remaining dough.
Season breadsticks with a light, even layer of garlic salt, onion powder, and Italian seasoning (or other desired seasonings). Sprinkle Parmesan evenly over top. Don't be skimpy on the Parmesan!
Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. Meanwhile, let the bread sticks rise for 10-20 minutes.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until beginning to lightly brown.
Make Ahead Instructions: After seasoning, cover with foil and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator about 1 hour before serving to let the bread sticks come to room temperature and rise for about 10 minutes, then bake according to directions.
