Tender Garlic Cheese Breadsticks Recipe

Tender Garlic Cheese Breadsticks Recipe

Breadsticks complements so many dishes. These tender ones pair well with Italian dishes, salads and soups. I feel that when I use bread flour instead of all-purpose the texture is lighter.—Ann Volner, Maryville, Missouri
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 10 min. YIELD:32 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and milk. Add the sugar, butter, salt, baking soda and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 32 pieces. Shape each into a 4-1/2-in. rope.
  • 4. Place melted butter in a shallow bowl. Place cheese in a separate shallow bowl. Dip ropes in butter then coat with cheese. Place 3 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Combine Italian seasoning and garlic powder; sprinkle over breadsticks. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 32 breadsticks.
