My mom has been making these breadsticks since before I can remember. They were always a favorite among my family (five siblings and parents). We thoroughly enjoyed them with her best lasagna recipe or spaghetti, or anything really.

I remember helping make these many times as a little girl. If you have kids, it's a great recipe to use to teach kids to cook. All it takes is rolling, dipping, twisting, and sprinkling—so easy. Further, they are inexpensive to make (I can make about 60 breadsticks for under $7.00). Dipping them in a thick ranch dressing dipping sauce (esp. Litehouse Ranch Dipping sauce) makes them the best. I like these breadsticks even better than Olive Garden's—yes they are truly that good! Give them a try, and leave a review below.

Instructions

Take 2 or 3 loafs of frozen bread dough out of the freezer. Place on counter top for a few hours until defrosted and slightly risen. I used Rhode's Frozen Bread Dough. 

Breadsticks5

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut each bread dough into 12 pieces. Roll them lengthwise so they are about 8 inches or longer.

Breadsticks6

Dip the rolled out dough into salted butter.

Then fold in half and wrap the dough around each other creating a twist and pinch ends. Lay them on a tin foiled or silicone baking mat on a heavy duty sheet pan. They may unravel just a bit that's completely normal though.

Breadsticks9

Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon Lawry's garlic salt per stick. Then cover generously with parmesan cheese.

Breadsticks7

Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise until about double in size. I usually don't wait more than 30 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the parmesan is golden brown.

Allow to cool slightly.
