  • 6 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 pkg active yeast
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 3 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp canola oil

Garlic Topping

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)


  • Mix flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Add in water and the oil. Stir until combined.
  • Cover and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  • Flour your counter generously. Pour the dough out onto the counter. Flour the top of the dough and knead a few times until it is no longer sticky.
  • Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces. Then cut each of those into 8 pieces. Knead each piece in a little flour prior to rolling into a long rope. Arrange the rope on your pan, allowing some rising room.
  • Repeat with remaining dough. Expect to have 3 pans worth of breadsticks.
  • Let the breadsticks rise for an additional 15-20 minutes, while the oven is preheating to 375°.
  • Bake at 375° for 15-17 minutes.
  • Mix together the garlic powder and salt.
  • Immediatly after taking the breadsticks out of the oven, brush each breadstick with melted butter and then sprinkle the salt/garlic mixture onto each breadstick.
  • Serve immediately!
