Reader Amy R. sent me this recipe and said “I wanted to share this recipe with you… It is definitely our family’s favorite bread. My husband calls them ‘Better than Olive Garden Breadsticks.'”
Better than Olive Garden Breadsticks? This I have to try!
A few hours later, the dough was ready to be rolled into breadsticks.
I was running short on time, so I rolled some into breadsticks and the rest I just rolled out and sliced.
Kaitlynn enjoyed helping me roll her own “breadsticks”.
The verdict? These were very delicious. I’m not sure that the sliced dough option worked as well as the breadsticks I actually rolled into “ropes”, but I will definitely be making this recipe again in the future.
The whole family agreed that this recipe was a keeper. Best of all, it is so simple!
Easy Italian Breadsticks Recipe
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 cups flour
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
- 2 Tablespoons butter (melted)
- 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Place ingredients in your bread machine in order listed. Run the dough cycle. When complete, divide the dough into 12 balls and form into 4-6-inch ropes. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes or until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Mix the butter and parmesan cheese and brush over breadsticks as soon as they come out of the oven.
