Homemade Garlic Breadsticks Recipe


For the Breadsticks

  • 1 cup (237 ml) water, warmed to 110°-115°F (43°-46°C)
  • 1¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups (254g) bread flour

For the Garlic Butter

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1½ teaspoons garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation Steps

Yeast Mixture:

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until the yeast is frothy and active.

Dough Formation:

  • Add the salt, olive oil, and flour to the yeast mixture. Mix until combined. If the dough is sticky, gradually add more flour until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Attach the dough hook and knead the dough on medium speed for about 5 minutes.

First Rise:

  • Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a greased bowl. Cover and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Shape the Breadsticks:

  • After the dough has risen, punch it down gently to deflate. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a rope about nine inches (23 cm) long and arrange on parchment-lined baking sheets. Cover with a clean towel and let rise again for about 1 hour.


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C).
  • Bake the breadsticks for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown.

Garlic Butter Application:

  • As soon as they come out of the oven, brush the breadsticks with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and kosher salt.
