This is my mom's breadstick recipe and they are so yummy! They are perfect with a bowl of hot, creamy soup.
1 1/2 c. warm water
2 T. sugar
1 T. yeast
1/2 t. salt
3 c. flour, plus more for rolling out
5 T. butter, melted
garlic salt
parmesan cheese

Stir together water, sugar, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl. Let sit until slightly foamy.
Mix in flour. Dough will be very sticky. Cover and rest for 10-20 minutes.
Dump onto a well-floured surface. Sprinkle top with a little flour, too.
Press with hands, or roll out to about 1/2" thick (maybe a little less.) With a pizza cutter, cut dough into 14 breadsticks.
Pour a little melted butter into a cookie sheet. Roll each breadstick in butter and twist. Add more butter as needed.
Sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise for 10-20 minutes.
Bake at 375 F for 20 minutes.
Dump hot breadsticks out, upside-down.
Serve hot.
This is one of my favorite comfort foods. Enjoy!


  1. Mmm, those breadsticks look real good. They must have been so wonderful to eat fresh out of the oven.

  2. Thanks, Lisa! Yeah, they are the best when they're hot! :)
