Course: Bread
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 breadsticks


  • 1 C water
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C unsalted butter melted
  • 3 C all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt


  • 3 Tb unsalted butter melted
  • garlic salt


  • Heat water to 115°F. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Allow to proof for 5-10 minutes. 
  • If using a stand mixer, prepare with a dough hook attachment. Combine flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. With mixer running on low, add melted butter and yeast mixture. Increase speed, mixing until dough comes together and forms a ball. Transfer to a large greased bowl. Cover and allow to rise for 60-90 minutes or until doubled in size. 
  • Prepare 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats. On a silicone work station, divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Keep dough covered with a clean towel when not rolling. Roll one piece at a time into a 7-inch log. Place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Each baking sheet should only have 6 pieces of dough each. Cover and rise in a warm location for an additional 60-90 minutes or until doubled in size. 
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 12 minutes. 
  • Working on one roll at a time, immediately brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt. Repeat with remaining rolls.
  • Serve warm. 
  • Store remaining breadsticks in an airtight container, reheating as desired. 


*Alternatively, dough may be mixed by hand.
