Yes, one hour. Start to finish.
Yes, homemade. Not from a can, tube, or frozen.
Yes, they are the best breadsticks you will ever eat.
(Why do I know this? Because this recipe is the CLOSEST I have ever made for my beloved breadsticks from Valentino’s restaurant in Nebraska. Truly, those breadsticks out of the oven are a small bite of heaven.)
But, as usual, I digress.
This One-Hour Homemade Garlic Breadsticks Recipe is a lifesaver during dinner time. It takes an ordinary dinner, like spaghetti, and makes it extra-ordinary. It just takes dinner up a notch…without adding a ton of time.
Because let’s be honest, sometimes, you have to put a “bow” on those leftovers to make sure the peanut gallery doesn’t complain.
And an added bonus, they freeze or refrigerate well, so the kiddos can have them with homemade pizza sauce for lunch the next day.
One-Hour Homemade Garlic Breadsticks Recipe
Recipe Yields: 15 Breadsticks
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1.5 cups of warm water (110 – 115 degrees)
3.5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
Grated parmesan cheese
2. In a large bowl (or your stand mixer), whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Then stir in yeast mixture until combined.
3. Knead dough for 3 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes.
I usually make these in my stand mixer with the bread hook. I just let the mixer knead the dough on low for three minutes.
4. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or grease with a light coat of Crisco.
5. Lightly flour work surface and roll dough out into a rectangle about the size of the baking sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 1-inch wide strips (about two fingers in length). Bring the two ends of the strip of dough together (so it is doubled) and then twist. Place on baking sheet. Repeat till all dough is done.
6. Let breadsticks rise for 10 – 20 minutes.
7. Bake breadsticks for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.
8. Immediately after you take breadsticks out of oven, brush with melted butter and then coat with parmesan cheese, garlic salt and parsley (don’t be skimpy, the more the better) and serve immediately. Enjoy!
