    Ashbow's Note:

    Since Olive Garden won't give out the recipe, here's the closest one to the real thing! This recipe calls for a Kitchen-Aid mixer with the paddle attachment, but I'm sure you could use something similar. From Food Network magazine.

    Serves: 16


    breadst ...

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Make the dough: Place 1/4 cup warm water in the bowl of a mixer; sprinkle in the yeast and set aside until foamy, about 5 minutes. Add the flour, butter, sugar, fine salt and 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons warm water; mix with the paddle attachment until a slightly sticky dough forms, 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Knead the dough by hand on a floured surface until very smooth and soft, 3 minutes. Roll into a 2-foot-long log; cut into 16 1 1/2-inch pieces. Knead each piece slightly and shape into a 7-inch long breadstick; arrange 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with a cloth; let rise in a warm spot until almost doubled, about 45 minutes.
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    4. 4
      Make the topping: Brush the breadsticks with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the butter and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
    5. 5
      Bake until slightly golden, about 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt with the garlic powder and oregano.
    7. 7
      Brush the warm breadsticks with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter and sprinkle with the flavored salt.
    8. 8
      Serve warm with salad.

      This recipe was great for breadsticks. I didn't really care about it tasting just like olive garden, I just wanted to accomplish another yeast dough recipe. These were so good and fluffy, which I'm happy about because it took freaking forever rolling into 7-inch logs because of the elasticity. It got very annoying, so I'm glad they turned out so good. I let mine rise for an hour and a half because the spot wasn't very warm and then partially baked them at 325 for 10 min, or 15 (can't remember), then froze them. Now whenever I need breadsticks to go with my meal, I pop a few in a 400 degree preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the top is a pretty brown color. Take them out and brush them with a melted butter mixture of butter, lots of garlic powder and italian seasoning. Delish!

      I usually do not have good luck with yeast recipes. But these turned out very good...
      I used my Kitchenaid to knead the dough...

      This recipe is great. Very close to Olive Gardens breadsticks. My kids loved it. Im a former employee of Olive Garden and to be honest....they don't make their own breadsticks. Topping yes, breadsticks no. They get the bread delivered and sometimes even use different vendors. The bread comes pre made like dinner rolls that you have to bake for like 10 minutes then they brush on the seasoned butter. I myself love make bread from scratch but don't stress yourself about using pre made bread since Olive Garden sure doesn't :D
