  1. Dissolve 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and yeast in 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.
  2. Beat flour, oil, egg, salt, remaining sugar, and remaining warm water into yeast mixture until smooth, adding more flour if needed to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a floured work surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to cover completely with oil. Cover bowl with a damp towel and place in a warm area until dough is doubled in size, about 40 minutes.
  4. Grease a baking sheet.
  5. Punch dough down and turn onto a floured work surface. Divide dough into 18 pieces and shape each into a 6-inch rope. Arrange dough pieces on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart; cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove cover from dough.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
  8. Whisk butter and garlic salt together in a bowl; brush over each breadstick. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each.

  • I personally turn the oven on warm and put the bowl on the oven to let rise.

Wow, this recipe really complemented my meal! I found I needed to add more flour to make the dough the right consistency, and after putting the toppings on at the end, I put them back in the oven for 1 minute to melt the Parmesan cheese. Worked great. Thanks for an easy and delicious bread stick! So much better than store-bought...I may even try freezing some to have on hand, but I'd need to make another batch. This first batch didn't last past one meal at my house. :)

Love these! Simple enough, but I don't think they require half a stick of butter.

OMG! These were soooooo good and sooooo easy to make. I used a gas oven and had to bake for about 15 minutes longer @ 200 C. Very soft and very flavorful. I also had to use much more flour than called for as the dough was still gooey, I'm at sea level and it was a rainy day, so that may have had a bit to do with it. I used Johnny's Garlic Spread and Seasoning in place of the garlic salt and parm cheese.

DELICIOUS! So soft, fluffy and buttery-garlic good! I did need to add a bit more flour than called for, but that was fine (I halved the recipe and needed an extra 1/2 cup of flour or so). Very easy to make and the family gobbled them up...a definite keeper~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)
