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!

These are pretty good but I found them to be a tad sweet. The dough rolled quite easily. I sprinkled it with Parmesan, flipped half over and rolled it out again. 18 nice long breadsticks, good as appetizers or accompaniments to any meal. Thanks, Love, for posting.

My son and husband loved these. Now that I am looking back at the recipe, I believe I forgot to add the brown sugar! I was wondering why it took so long to get the bread sticks to brown. After about 20 minutes, I brushed them with a mixture of melted butter, lots of garlic powder, parmesan cheese and lots of salt. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily the dough rolled out.

These were okay, but not exactly what I was looking for. They tasted a little too bland and a bit crusty. But they were okay.

Really good! I used 2T white sugar, increased the salt to 1.5 tsp, and I used instant yeast so cut it to 2 tsp. I brushed olive oil on a jelly roll pan and once risen the bread sticks filled the pan; mine got to rise about 30 minutes. I made pizza sticks with the leftovers the next day and the kids devoured them (they liked them plain as well). I'll be using this recipe a lot! I have since made the dough (in the Kitchenaid) and then put it in the fridge for about 3 hours while I ran errands. It rose great... I just continued with the recipe 1 hour before dinner!!

YUM! Considering I'm a complete novice at making bread from scratch, these turned out wonderfully!! Served with Easy Black Bean Soup for a delicious meal!

These are so quick and great. I make as suggested but sub. 1 cup WW flour b/c I always do that to add a bit more nutrition. I've made them with melted butter and garlic salt/parmesan cheese. I've also made them as "sweet sticks" and brushed them with melted butter, sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on them and made frosting (cream cheese!) to dip them in. DIVINE. But not too healthy!
