Our family loves the breadsticks at Olive Garden. If you do too, now you can make your own at home. These would be perfect with my easy 20-Minute Bow Tie Pasta Alfredo. Or, serve them with any of your favorite pastas, soups, or salads. These breadsticks are the perfect side to just about any meal. You can even serve them as a little appetizer with some marinara sauce!
Olive Garden copycat breadsticks
To make your Olive Garden copycat breadsticks, you only need some basic ingredients you most likely have in your pantry. After mixing and forming a dough ball, you’ll let the dough rise for about a half hour.
Next, you’ll roll the dough into one long “tube” shape and then cut it into strips of about sevent to eight inches. After brushing with butter and salt, bake the breadsticks for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Garlic butter is brushed on top after they come out of the oven.
Doesn’t that sound delicious? There’s nothing better than fresh, warm breadsticks?
