How To Make olive garden breadsticks

  • 1
    Prepare two baking sheets by lining them with parchment.
  • 2
    Place 1/4 cup warm water in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix in yeast and sugar and allow to stand for 5 minutes until foamy.
  • 3
    Stir in the flour, 2 tablespoons room temp. butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 cup warm water. With the paddle attachment, mix on medium until the dough comes together, adding additional water 1-2 tablespoons at a time.
  • 4
    Switch from the paddle attachment to the dough hook and mix for 4 minutes until dough is smooth.
  • 5
    Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into 16 pieces. I found it easiest to do this by separating the dough in half, halving it again, and again, etc. until I had 16 pieces. They were more even that way.
  • 6
    Roll them into logs about 7 inches long. Place them on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart and cover with a towel.
  • 7
    Allow them to rise for 45-60 minutes.
  • 8
    In a small bowl, whisk together the fine sea salt, garlic powder, and oregano.
  • 9
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 10
    Brush each breadstick with half of the melted butter and sprinkle half of the seasoning mixture on the breadsticks.
  • 11
    Bake for 15 minutes.
  • 12
    Brush each breadstick again with melted butter and sprinkle with remaining seasoning. Serve warm.
