Description

Oh man, I love these! These would just complete any meal really. Pasta, soup, salad … You name it. Make these when you get a chance. Make sure you serve them hot out of the oven.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Hot Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 4-½ cups Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Garlic Powder

Preparation

For the dough, pour the water into a stand mixer with the sugar and yeast. Let that sit and froth for about 10 minutes. Then add salt, butter and 2 cups of flour. Mix the dough with your mixer on low. Add the rest of the flour a half cup at a time, until dough scrapes the sides of the bowl clean. Mix the dough about 5 minutes on medium speed, until it’s soft and easy to work with.

Roll the dough out into a long log, spray a knife with cooking spray and cut the dough into 12-14 pieces. Roll those pieces into long snakes.

Spray 2 large cookie sheets with cooking spray, and lay the breadsticks out leaving about 2 inches between each one. Place them in the oven with the temperature turned to 170 F. Let them rise for about 15 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Once risen, brush them with 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle them with salt. Return them to the oven and heat oven to 400 F. Once the temperature hits 400 F, start your timer and bake them for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

While they are baking combine the rest of the melted butter with the garlic powder. When the breadsticks are golden brown, remove them from the oven and brush them with the butter/garlic mixture.

Hey Pat, you just put them back in the oven after they are risen and the oven is pre-heated.

I can’t wait to try this the next time I make spagetti for the kids, but I don’t understand the following from your recipe “Return them to the oven and heat oven to 400 degrees F. Once the temperature hits 400 degrees F, bake them for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.” Do you put them back in the oven while it is pre-heating or do you put them in the oven after it is pre-heated?

These taste very much like OG breadsticks. Overall, a good, easy bread for pastas & soups/salads. We are a dairy-free family, so I used coconut oil in place of butter. Worked great!

So close to the Olive Garden’s breadsticks. The dough was great to work with, the flavor was perfect, and they were so soft.
