How To Make Breadstick Recipe (Olive Garden Copycat)

This breadstick recipe brings Olive Garden’s famous appetizer to your table! Breadsticks are brushed with butter and salt for the perfect hint of saltiness.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 12 minutes
Rise Time: 2 hours 5 minutes
Total: 2 hours 32 minutes



  • 1cupwarm water,plus 2 tbsp more
  • tspyeast
  • 2tbspsugar
  • tspsalt
  • 3tbspoil
  • cupsflour
  • 2tbspbutter,melted
  • ½tspgarlic salt


  1. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water.

  2. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes, or until foamy. Add the salt, oil, and 2 cups of flour, and mix until combined.

  3. Add additional flour, ¼ cup at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and is soft and only slightly sticky to the touch. Knead the dough until smooth, sprinkling with flour as needed to make the dough manageable.

  4. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and let rise for 1 hour, or until doubled.

  5. After the dough has risen, punch it down gently and divide it into 12 equal-sized balls. Roll each ball out into a 9-inch rope, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone liner. Repeat with remaining dough, using 2 baking sheets.

  6. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.

  7. During the last 10 minutes of rise time, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  8. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with garlic salt.

  9. Serve warm.
