Absolutely wonderful! My four year old said she doesn't need to go to Olive Garden anymore. I immediately brush on butter when out of the oven and place in a cloth covered bowl to keep warm. I freeze left overs and rebake at 350 degrees for 10 min. Rebutter when done. Update: I rolled out the dough and cut inch squares w/a pizza cutter. Then I used the squares to cover cocktail franks and a bit of cheese, let raise and baked for pigs in a blanket. I served in the crockpot lined with foil and covered with a towel during the Super Bowl party. Yum!

Delish! We're on Weight Watchers, so I used a little over half whole wheat flour, only 1 tbs brown sugar, and instead of 1/4 c. oil, just 1 tablespoon. To make up the rest, I used about 3 tablespoons of FF yogurt. I stretched it out to 20 breadsticks and only 1 point each. Yummy!

These were soooo good! Talk about easy if you've got a bread maker! They are so light and fluffy! I too cut them in half so they weren't so long. I even forgot them in my bread maker for about an extra half hour while making my soup, and they still turned out perfect...

My first attempt at this recipe failed because I tried to hand knead and didn't do a good job, the dough didn't rise. I made it again but this time, put the dough in my bread maker and made snake-like sticks with the dough instead of rolling it out (no rolling pin). I put them in an oven set to 200 and turned off to help them rise, 20 minutes was perfect. Baked them and brushed them with butter and garlic salt, YUM YUM. Great recipe!

OMG, these were AWESOME!!!!! I followed the recipe. I let them rise for 30 minutes and baked them for 12. I brushed on a mixture of melted butter with garlic salt and sprinkled them with Parmesan right out of the oven. My family wolfed them down. I saved half the dough in the fridge to make another batch tomorrow. Thanks so much!

Absolutely wonderful!!! I've been searching for a good breadstick recipe similar to Olive Garden's for a couple of years now and have found some to be "adequate" but nothing to write home about. This recipe, however, has ended my search. The breadsticks are not only soft and fluffy, they're even tastier than OG's. I followed the recipe as give, but also cut them in half after rolling, otherwise they'd have been gigantic. And they definitely took longer than 20 min. to rise - more like 75 min. but they were well worth the wait. While I did brush them with melted butter after taking from the oven, I didn't sprinkle them with the garlic salt and/or the parmesan and frankly, I don't think those added flavors would have done anything to improve these.

I've made these more times than I care to count and every single breadstick turned out perfectly. I've also used the dough to make pizza crust and it was perfectly crispy outside while still soft and chewy inside. Perfection. I've subbed about a cup of the bread flour with whole wheat and they were very good that way too. Thanks so much!
