  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Pizza Cutter
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Baking Sheet


  • 1 cup warm water*
  • teaspoons yeast
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil or canola oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (start with 2 1/2 cups and add more as needed)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted
  • garlic salt optional topping
  • powdered parmesan cheese optional topping
  • Italian seasoning optional topping


  • In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together warm water, yeast, sugar, and salt until sugar has dissolved.
  • Add in oil and flour and mix until a smooth dough forms and it's no longer sticky.
  • Roll out into a 10x12" rectangle.
  • Cut into strips about 3/4" - 1" wide.
  • Twist each strip once or twice and lay out on a greased baking sheet (I sprayed mine with non-stick cooking spray).
  • Let breadsticks rise for 20 minutes (longer if you can, but at least 20 minutes).
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
  • When the breadsticks come out of the oven, brush breadsticks with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.


Helpful Tips:
  • *When using warm water for making bread, we found a rule of thumb is to use water that is just a little hotter than what you would use to wash your face. If it's too hot for your face, it's too hot for yeast. It should be around 110 degrees.
  • You could also use bread flour in place of all-purpose flour.
  • If you want to flavor the breadsticks a little more, add 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder and 1/2 Tablespoon Italian seasoning.
  • When cutting dough into strips, we found that using a pizza cutter made it super easy!
