  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3-4 cups all-purpose flour

Butter and Toppings

  • garlic salt
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • 1-2 Tbsp melted butter to brush on top before baking


  • In an electric stand mixer, or stand mixer with a dough hook, mix together water, sugar, yeast, salt, and one cup of flour.
  • Add remaining flour 1 cup at a time until the dough stops sticking to the side of the bowl.
  • Knead by hand for 3 minutes. Dough should be soft and only slightly sticky.
  • Let dough rest in bowl for 10 minutes.
  • While the dough rests, preheat the oven to 400°F and spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  • On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a long rectangle. It should be about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into 1 inch strips to make the sticks. A pizza cutter works great for this!
  • Twist each strip slightly and place on baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart.
  • Brush some of the melted butter over the breadsticks and sprinkle parmesan and garlic on top.
  • Let rise for 20 minutes in a warm room then bake for 15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
