Directions

  1. Dissolve 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and yeast in 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.
  2. Beat flour, oil, egg, salt, remaining sugar, and remaining warm water into yeast mixture until smooth, adding more flour if needed to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a floured work surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to cover completely with oil. Cover bowl with a damp towel and place in a warm area until dough is doubled in size, about 40 minutes.
  4. Grease a baking sheet.
  5. Punch dough down and turn onto a floured work surface. Divide dough into 18 pieces and shape each into a 6-inch rope. Arrange dough pieces on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart; cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove cover from dough.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
  8. Whisk butter and garlic salt together in a bowl; brush over each breadstick. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I personally turn the oven on warm and put the bowl on the oven to let rise.

This is a very delicious light and fluffy breadstick. Best breadstick recipe I have found!As other suggested I did reduce the sugar because I wanted more of a savory than a sweet bread. I also ...

Love these! Simple enough, but I don't think they require half a stick of butter.

Soft, sweet breadsticks just the way I like them...the author says these are as close to the Olive Garden ones as she has tasted and I agree whole heartedly - I spray the tops if mine with water...

Too sweet for me.

These were very soft and good, but a bit too sweet for my taste. Also, I only used 1/4 c. of butter for the tops.

They taste like restaurant breadsticks, I, like some other people only used 1/4 cup of butter. I also used a special pan which does not let the bottoms brown as much.

This is the recipe I will use for bread sticks from now on. Very yummy! Embarrassed to say the 5 of us almost polished off the whole recipe. More flour, less butter would make it a five star ...

Turned out just like the photo, and it was good, but a little too sweet for me. I'd leave out sugar, except the little bit that goes into the yeast & water.
