Homemade Breadsticks recipe
The Stay At Home Chef
Homemade Breadsticks are light, buttery, and oh so delicious! You can make them by hand or in a stand mixer. These easy breadsticks are ready to eat in less than 90 minutes.
• 1 cup warm water, 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit
• 1 tablespoon instant dry yeast
• 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon table salt
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
• 2 tablespoons melted butter
• ¼ teaspoon table salt
• ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (optional)
• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (optional)
1️⃣ In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm water, yeast, sugar, salt, and olive oil.
2️⃣ Add in 2 cups of flour. Using a dough hook, turn the mixer on to a low speed. Once the flour starts to incorporate into the dough, increase the speed to a medium range. Slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. The dough mixture should be slightly sticky and soft, but shouldn’t stick to your hands. Add more or less flour until the dough reaches the desired consistency.
3️⃣ Transfer the dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise 30 minutes.
4️⃣ Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper. Punch dough down and divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 9 to 10-inch long rope or snake. Place on the prepared baking sheet and let rise for 20 minutes while the oven preheats.
5️⃣ Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake breadsticks for 16 to 18 minutes, until golden brown on top.
6️⃣ While the breadsticks are baking, whisk together the melted butter, salt, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush on top of breadsticks immediately after baking. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese or dried herbs as desired.
