Garlic Butter Breadsticks Recipe

Soft Garlic Butter Breadsticks brushed with garlic butter are such a savory treat. You and your guests will love them!

Warm, soft breadsticks were always something I liked to dip in soup on a crisp fall day. Breadsticks as an appetizer was new to me until I began to frequent a certain Italian inspired restaurant chain. Eating anything bread for an appetizer appealed to me! I LOVE bread. And breadsticks.

During a recent gathering with close friends, I warned my daughter to slow down on the breadsticks because she would be full before dinner. She told me without hesitating that they were so good it would be worth it. I must admit, I was flattered.

For how easy it is to mix the dough, these are worth the effort and any willing kitchen helpers will likely have a lot of fun rolling the dough into logs!

I like using quick rise/instant yeast for recipes like this because it can cut way down on the rise time. If it’s cold where you live, you can keep your dough warm by placing your dough in a cold oven with a bowl of boiling water beside it. The boiling water will create a warm environment for the dough to rise but not so hot that it will start to bake or dry out on the outside.

That is why I don’t recommend turning on the oven to warm it up a little before placing your dough inside to rise. It’s easy to make the oven too warm. This is one of those things I had to learn the hard way. I swear by that method in the winter months.

Beginners or well-seasoned bread bakers, this is a great recipe to try! I hope you love it as much as we do.
