  • 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.
