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

I am lazy so I used the Pillsbury breadsticks but followed the recipe for the topping. OMG, this is so incredibly delicious.

These bread sticks came out very well! I am only 12, but I made them with the olive garden minestrone and my parents and my sister loved it!

Awesome recipe! I added a little bit of garlic, butter (on top) and parm cheese pre cooking. My impatient husband tried immediately and didn't think they tasted like olive gardens. I then added the melted butter and voila, just like olive garden! Delicious!

Excellent recipe! I made 32 instead of 16, so reduced time to 8 minutes. I only used whole wheat flour and they turned out perfectly soft. I didn't bother with the mixer, I just mixed and kneaded by hand on a floured surface for a full 7 minutes (super easy). Perfection.

Tossed this in the bread machine where I subbed olive oil for the butter and honey for the sugar, let it do its dough process and then shaped the bread sticks in 80g-each sticks (helps cook more evenly). I baked them on a silicon mat on a cookie sheet, brushed them twice with the garlic butter and they were amazing. I've got some in the freezer to use with later meals and was quite pleased with them. Thank you so much for sharing!

These are FANTASTIC!!! So light and fresh, we could not get enough of them! I can't imagine a better recipe than this one. Definitely a repeat recipe. I won't buy breadsticks again...
