The flavor and texture of these breadsticks is excellent. I don't buy bread flour so substituted 3 cups all-purpose flour and 3 tablespoons vital wheat gluten for the 3 cups of bread flour. I added about 2 tablespoons more flour while kneading the dough in my stand mixer because it was a little too sticky. I got 18 breadsticks, about 44 grams each, out of each batch of dough. I served the breadsticks with olive oil dipping sauce with garlic and herbs.
Geez I hate to be the bad guy here, but I followed this recipe exactly, including the use of the correct flour. I had to add almost a full extra cup of flour because the dough was like soup. I realize climate can affect this, so that was ok. Once made however, I found these breadsticks to be very dry and bland. I make a lot of my own breads and this just didn't match up. I gave it 1 star, my Dad gave it 2.5, so I gave this a 2. I would rather take the time to make real bread than make these again.
Love them! Quick and easy! The dough was so easy to roll out. This will be used often, for sure.
Great recipe! Dough is soft and easy to work. My granddaughter and I made breadsticks and pepperoni rolls and they turned out great! Thanks for a great, easy recipe!
Great recipe! My kids RAVED about these, and I will definitely make them again. I did knead mine in my Kitchenaid for a few minutes, mainly because the dough seemed too sticky.
These are excellent bread sticks. Easy to make and quick! I've made them at least a dozen times, they take 21 minutes in my oven, when they are done, I brush them with 1/2 cup of melted butter, then sprinkle generously with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. My kids claim they are better than Pizza Hut and Little Caesar's bread sticks and are a must have when we have pizza.
These turned out so soft, light and tender and so much like Olive Garden's breadsticks that I love. Not sure why mine took so long to rise. But when they did...boy are they good. After baking, I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled garlic powder on them...So good. I can't make these a lot because I will eat them all up. LOL.. Thanks for sharing.
I made these tonight to go with a crockpot ratatouille and they were wonderful! I had made them before but had forgotten about them, then looking for somehting to dip inthe juices i refound this recipe and knew i HAD to make them! I love these!!! I made them with all white AP flour last time, but this time i made with half AP and half whole wheat and they were still so soft and fluffy... tho the 2 hour rise could have helped there, wheat flour needs time to soften! Still faster than most of my bread recipes lol.
I baked them at 400, and brushed with olive oil and garlic powder after baking. i think i used teaspoons instead of tablespoons on the sugar (using white) but they browned nicely and had a crisp bottom
Excellent and so easy!! This recipe is going into my best of the best cookbook file. I put the dry ingredients into my Kitchenaid mixer (with the yeast on top), then added the oil to the side and poured the warm water directly over the yeast. I don't know if that makes a difference but it worked for me. Then used the dough hook on the mixer and "kneaded" the dough for about 5 minutes. These breadsticks are wonderful and I will be making them again and again. So easy!
Great recipe! I make mine by hand and brush with olive oil.
