Olive Garden Breadsticks

Now if you’re like me then you love Olive Garden! I’m no fancy woman, it’s my favorite restaurant of all time! Besides the ultra yummy pasta, I’m a complete sucker for their salad and breadsticks! I found this recipe on Pinterest of course and these breadsticks are so close to the OG kind they’re ultra yummy too! Now this recipe is pretty easy if you have a stand mixer, but I do not and I had to knead the bread by hand which is a little time consuming and kind of a pain.

Here’s What You’ll Need:
-1.5 cups warm water
-2 Tablespoons sugar
-1 Tablespoon yeast
-1 Tablespoon salt
-2 Tablespoons butter…softened
-4 cups flour
-3 Tablespoons butter…melted
-Sea salt
-1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 170 degrees
-Pour the water, sugar, and yeast into a stand mixer or bowl and let it sit to froth for 10 minutes
-Add salt, butter, and 2 cups four then mix on low
-Add the rest of the flour half a cup at a time until the dough is not sticky anymore
-Either mix in the stand mixer or knead by hand until the dough is like bread dough and easy to work with
-Let the dough sit in the bowl for about an hour until it has doubled in size.
-Roll the dough out and cut into long strips

-Roll the pieces into logs (I folded each strip in half and then rolled them)
-Grease 2 large cookies sheets and place the logs on them
-Bake the breadsticks for 15 minutes
-While baking melt 1.5 Tablespoons of butter
-After the breadsticks have risen brush them with the melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt.
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees
-Bake breadsticks for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
-While baking mix together 1.5 Tablespoons melted butter and garlic powder
-Remove breadsticks from oven and brush with butter/garlic mix
