Olive garden Bread sticks?!?!? Yes Please

I found a recipe for making what pretty much taste like Olive Garden bread sticks. I love them, who doesn't? So I gathered up the cooking supplies and set forth on my mission to see if we would include this recipe into our life. It passed with flying colors! Yippie Skippie.

So here is everything you need minus the pasta noodles that was for dinner. :)

Here I have added water, sugar and yeast. Lets stand for 10 minutes.

Added salt, butter and 2 cups flour and cup at a time after combined with first 2 cups.   

 Let dough rest in bowl for about an hour. Then roll out in a BIG log :)

Cut that log into about 12-14 little logs and roll them out into little perfect logs.  

Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in low heat take out coat with butter,then  turn heat up and bake for rest of time.

The finished product. One is missing a bite, because my girls just couldn't wait!


1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp butter, softened
4-5 Cups flour

3 Tbsp butter melted
Sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder

For the dough, pour  water, sugar and yeast in bowl and  let sit and froth for about 10 minutes. Add salt, butter, and 2 cups of flour. Mix the dough . Add the rest of the flour a cup at a time, until dough scrapes the sides of the bowl clean. Mix the dough about 5 minutes until its soft and easy to work with.
Let the dough rest in the bowl until doubled in size, about 1 hour I place a towel over my bowl and set in the oven. Nice warm draft free place. Roll the dough out into a long log, spray a knife with cooking spray and cut the dough into 12-14 pieces. Roll those pieces into about 6 inch long logs. Spray 2 large cookie sheets with cooking spray and lay the bread sticks out leaving about 2 inches between each one.
Place them in the oven with the temperature turned to 170 degrees. Let them rise for about 15 minutes, or until doubled in size. Once risen, brush them with the 1 1/2 T of melted butter and sprinkle them with salt. Now preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake them for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. While they are baking combine the rest of the melted butter with 1 tsp garlic powder. When the bread sticks are golden brown, remove them from the oven and brush them with the butter/garlic mixture.
