Make the famous breadsticks at home—where you can eat as many as you want.
So I know it’s not popular in some circles to admit that you love Olive Garden™, but I’m going to do it anyway.
That salad. Their Alfredo sauce. Those breadsticks.
Wait. Let me repeat that.
Those breadsticks. So warm and fluffy straight from their oven. Topped with salty garlic and butter.
Heaven, I tell you.
Let’s recreate them at home, shall we? I’m starting with a Food Network™ recipe with just a few tweaks—because why reinvent the wheel?
First, you’ll want to whip up your dough. I use my stand mixer for this and it’s done in no time. Just throw everything in and let it knead until your dough is smooth and elastic. Easy peasy.
Next, let’s shape our dough. This is fun! Like Play-Doh™, but you get to lick your fingers when you’re done.
All good things have butter. This is a fact. When your dough has risen, go ahead and smear some on.
Do you even know what your house is going to smell like when you make it to this step? Your neighbors will be banging on the door asking for a dinner invite! Guaranteed.
