"Yum, soft garlic bread sticks! They are delicious warm from the oven. Garlic bread sticks taste great with so many meals. They can be a nice appetizer or a light snack too. If you prefer not to brush with butter, you can use a light tasting olive oil. You can find the Garlic Bread Sprinkle in the spice section of the grocery store."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Grease a small mixing bowl and set aside.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, add the yeast, salt, sugar, garlic powder, basil, oil, and hot water. With a mixer, mix for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Add 1 cup of flour and 3 Tablespoons of powdered milk. Mix for another 2 minutes.

Step 4

Using a wooden spoon, stir in the rest of the flour until combined.

Step 5

Remove the dough from the bowl out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. You may need to sprinkle a little flour on your dough or counter top if the dough is still too sticky.

Step 6

Place the dough in the greased bowl; flip the dough over so greased side is up. Cover dough loosely with a piece of plastic wrap. Let it rise until double in a warm place; 45-60 minutes.

Step 7

Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Step 8

Cut 15 pieces of dough.

Step 9

Dust a surface very lightly with flour and roll the pieces of dough into 8-inch sticks.

Step 10

Place bread sticks on parchment paper and reshape a bit more to keep the sticks fairly straight and even. Cover with towel and let rest for another 15-20 minutes.

Step 11

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Step 12

Bake bread sticks for approximately 18 minutes, or until lightly golden browned.

Step 13

Remove from oven and brush sticks generously with melted butter and sprinkle with Garlic Bread Sprinkle.

We have had these rolls so many times I think I know the recipe by heart! They are good with any meal you can think of and we will continue to have them as long as I'm around!

My wife whipped up a batch of these to have with a pasta dish she was making. They were almost like Olive Gardens only better. I can't wait to have them again when we can dip them in some Italian spices and oil with a splash of balsamic. Yum!

I couldn't have asked for a better bread stick if I had tried! These are SO good! I had them with a sausage and chicken dish with sauce and egg noodles and it was the perfect thing to mop all that yummy sauce with. I am going to have some with Alfredo sauce to dip them in tomorrow when I make some Shrimp Alfredo. Can't wait for that! Thank you for sharing another lovely recipe of yours with us Elsie! Linda

I begged my wife to make these and when she finally did we ate a few more than we should have. They are light and deliciously garlic flavored, which we love. They went great with our Spaghetti Carbonara. We dipped them in Alfredo sauce. MMMMm good!
