Olive Garden™ Copycat Breadsticks

Light, fluffy, and brushed with buttery garlic sauce!

Ingredients

For bread:

2 1/4
teaspoons active dry yeast
1 1/2
cups warm water, about 110º F
4 1/2
cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
2
tablespoons butter, room temperature
2
tablespoons sugar
1
tablespoon salt

For topping:

4
tablespoons butter, melted
1
teaspoon garlic salt

Directions

  • 1 Place 1/4 cup of water in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • 2 Add the remaining water, 4 1/2 cups of flour, butter, sugar and salt to the mixer.
  • 3 Mix on low speed until combined. Increase speed to medium and knead for 5 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Add more flour as needed, to get the dough to come together.
  • 4 Break dough into fourths. Roll each fourth into a long, thin log about 16 inches long. Cut each log into three pieces. Place the breadsticks on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cover with a clean cloth.
  • 5 Let rise for 45 minutes.
  • 6 Heat oven to 400 ºF.
  • 7 Lightly brush 2 tablespoons of butter over the breadsticks and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 8 Remove from the oven. Brush with the remaining butter and sprinkle with the garlic salt. Serve hot.

Step By Step  

Light, fluffy, and brushed with buttery garlic sauce!

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

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.
