Instructions Checklist
  • Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/4 cup warm water in a large bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 15 minutes. Add flour, 1 1/4 cup warm water, 2 tablespoons softened butter, and 1 tablespoon salt; knead until dough is well mixed and soft, about 3 minutes.

  • Roll dough into a 2-foot log. Cut into 16 equal pieces, about 1 1/2 inches wide. Knead each piece and shape into a 6-inch breadstick. Arrange breadsticks on a baking sheet; let rise for about 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Mix 3 tablespoons melted butter and garlic powder together in a bowl; brush onto breadsticks.

  • Bake breadsticks in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Immediately brush with remaining melted butter mixture; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt.

KEEPER!!!! Excellent recipe. I made 12 larger bread sticks and all I could add to this wonderful recipe is I could add some Parmesan to the topping. Save this recipe - it is great. Read More

I made this recipe as written and they turned out bland. I could not taste the garlic. I will make this again and will add garlic to the dough as well in the butter. This recipe does make a lot of bread sticks. I have to agree with others adding some parmesan cheese would help too. Read More

Wonderful texture. I did make a change though. I added 1 tablespoon more sugar and added about 3 or 4 cloves of garlic (chopped super fine) to the dough. I've finally found my perfect breadstick recipe. Read More

For some reason I don't think my dough raised or at least not much. They were extremely dense after baking. Too bad. Won't attempt to make again. Read More

My family loves these. I mince some fresh garlic and add it to the dough we love garlic. When I make too many I just freeze them for later Read More

These are okay. Not a lot of flavor but they were fun to make. I think I'll add more salt next time and put garlic powder in the dough. Read More
