The 80’s were so awesome! Not just because of the fashion and music of this decade.

Another reason was due to a very popular chain restaurant that opened. It was the place to go for Family Dining, Dates and Proms! And within its kitchen there was something beyond delicious that was baking in their ovens. Now, I’m not talking about the entrees. Nope.. I’m talking about the pre-meal appetizer. Their BREAD STICKS!! You are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT if you guessed Olive Garden. I don’t think anyone can resist those infamous warm, soft, buttery and garlicky delights! Gosh.. I’m getting hungry just thinking about them! Guess I’m gonna make my own CopyCat version! 😜

CopyCat Olive Garden Buttery Breadsticks

#olivegarden #breadsticks #copycatrecipes #yummy #thefeedbaking

Ingredients for the Dough

1 cup plus 2 tbsp. warm water

2 tbsp. granulated sugar

2 1/4 tsp. Active dry yeast

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1 3/4 tsp. salt

Ingredients for the Topping

3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. Dried Italian herbs (optional)


In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine the water, yeast, sugar, and butter. Then add in the salt until combined. Now attach the dough hook to the mixer and begin to gradually add the flour on low speed. Increase the speed to medium and knead the dough for approx. 7-10 minutes, or until it is very smooth and elastic.

Remove the dough and place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

Once dough has risen twice size remove from bowl and place on clean surface and divide the dough into 12 portions (Just eyeball it). Roll each piece of dough into a 7-inch log. Place the logs on a baking sheets, lined with parchment paper and allow to rise until they are doubled in size, approx. 1 hour.

In small bowl combine the salt and garlic powder. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Bake the breadsticks for about 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately brush with the melted butter. Sprinkle salt/garlic combo. evenly over breadsticks and then sprinkle a bit of the dried Italian Herbs. Serve warm.

Enjoy! 😉
