  • 1.5 cups Warm Water
  • 1 tbsp Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 4 cups Flour
  • 8 tbsp Butter
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder


  • Mix together the 1 1/2 c warm water, 1 tbsp yeast and 2 tbsp sugar in your Kitchen Aid or Bosch bowl. Let sit for about 5 minutes (or until it becomes frothy).

  • Add 1 tsp salt and 4 cups flour to your mixer bowl. I like to add the first 2 cups of flour and then slowly add the additional tow cups. If needed add a little over. You want the dough to pull away from the sides of the mixture and not be super sticky.
    Let the dough rise for 15-20 minutes.

  • Take 8 tablespoons of butter and disburse it around a 12x17 Jelly Roll pan and place in the oven for a few minutes to melt the butter the oven. 
  • After the dough has risen for 15-20 minutes, place it onto a floured countertop and roll it out with a rolling pin a little bit smaller then your jelly roll pan.
    Use a pizza cutter, to then cut the dough into breadsticks. I like mine about 1.5" wide approx.

  • Place the breadsticks one at a time onto the buttered jelly roll pan. I like to leave a little room between mine, so the butter fills the area around each breadstick. If you like, dip your basting brush in the butter and then brush the tops of your breadsticks with butter as well!
    Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a little Garlic Powder.

  • Let rise for about 20 minutes. Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown on top and edges.
