Garlic Butter Breadsticks


For the dough:
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons warm water
1½ teaspoons instant yeast
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1¾ teaspoons kosher salt
3 cups bread flour, plus extra for dusting
For brushing:
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning


Place all ingredients except the bread flour into the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Combine on the lowest speed.
Gradually add in the bread flour. Increase the speed to medium and let the dough knead for 7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Remove the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size, around 1½ hours. I place mine in the oven with the light on.
Lightly flour a working surface and divide the dough into 12 equal portions. Then roll each piece of dough into a 7 inch breadstick log. Place them on a baking sheet lined with a nonstick baking mat or parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size again, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake about 12 minutes or until they’re golden brown on top.
While breadsticks are baking, combine all the brushing ingredients in a small bowl. Remove the breadsticks from the oven and immediately brush with the butter mixture. Serve them while warm.


These irresistible and simple Garlic Butter Breadsticks are so light, airy, and crispy, you’ll make them over and over again!
