These soft, flavorful, homemade garlic breadsticks are quick to mix, have short rise time and are a perfect choice to serve alongside soups, stews and chili.

Ingredients

  • 1 packet, 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water, 110°F to 115°F
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2-3/4 to 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Garlic salt, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • Place the warm water in a mixing bowl, gently stir in the yeast and set aside until some foamy bubbles form, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the sugar, oil and 2-3/4 cups of the flour and mix until a soft dough forms.
  • You may find it’s easiest to use your hands for mixing. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Note: If using a stand mixer, follow the instructions above using the dough hook. Knead for about 4 minutes on medium speed.
  • Roll the dough into a 10 x 12-inch rectangle and cut into 12 1-inch wide strips. Give each strip a gentle twist and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Cover with a lightweight, damp towel and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • Bake the breadsticks until golden, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven, brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt if desired. Return to the oven for 1 minute.
