Italian Breadsticks - Olive Garden Copycat Recipe Olive Garden Breadsticks KEY TO SUCCESS #1 – THE YEAST I know that yeast is an intimidating ingredient but it doesn’t have to be!  I’ll tell you exactly how to use the yeast to make these delicious Olive Garden Breadsticks.  Choose Active Dry Yeast – Active Dry Yeast can be found in little foil packets at your local grocery store. You’ll need two packets for this breadsticks recipe. Make Sure It’s Not Expired – Yeast will not activate after its expiration date so be sure to check the date! Make Sure Water is the Right Temp – The warm water needs to be approximately 100 degrees F. This is just slightly warmer than room temperature. The first step is to “proof” the yeast.  You’ll put the warm water, sugar, and yeast in the bowl of your stand mixer and let it sit for about 10 minutes.  If your yeast doesn’t start to get a little foamy, then you’ll need to start over with two new packets of yeast.  Don’t waste your time and ingredients trying to bake breadsticks if the yeast doesn’t foam.  Italian Breadsticks   KEY TO SUCCESS #2 – THE ‘STICKS After you make the dough, roll it into a log then cut it into 12 equal-sized pieces.  There’s a trick for this!  Cut the log in half.  Then cut each half into half again so that you have four quarters.  Take each quarter and cut it into three equal pieces.  Voila! Twelve breadsticks.  Roll each piece of dough into a 6-inch long snake.  You want to make the dough snakes as uniform as possible but don’t overthink it.  It really doesn’t take all that much effort to roll the dough into snakes.  Place the breadstick dough on two greased cookie sheets then put them in the 170 degree F oven.  Yes, 170 degrees Fahrenheit.  You’re not trying to cook the dough.  You’re just trying to make the breadsticks rise faster.  Italian Breadsticks - Olive Garden Copycat Recipe KEY TO SUCCESS #3 – GARLIC BUTTER Perhaps this one should have about a dozen exclamation points after it, but I’ll let you be the judge.  After the dough is doubled in size, remove it from the oven. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F.  While the oven is heating up, brush melted butter over the breadsticks and sprinkle them with sea salt.  I highly recommend baking the two pans of breadsticks separately so that they will bake evenly.  If you choose to bake them at the same time, you’ll want to rotate the pans halfway through baking and watch them carefully.  While the breadsticks are baking, mix together your melted butter and garlic powder.  After the breadsticks come out of the oven, brush them with your homemade garlic butter.  Or rather slather on the homemade garlic butter.  Emily did the buttering for our breadsticks and they were very nice and buttery.  She can butter my breadsticks any time.  Italian Breadsticks - Olive Garden Copycat These beautiful breadsticks bake up light and fluffy inside and have a pretty, golden brown and buttery top.  I think the pictures don’t really do them justice but they were really fantastic.  Here are some of the kitchen tools I used for this recipe:  Kitchenaid Mixer – They come in so many pretty colors. Mine is cornflower blue. Pastry Brush – It has very fine bristles so that you can really get the butter to completely cover the breadsticks Air Bake Cookie Sheets – I use the Air Bake Cookie Sheets because they are great for even heat distribution Parchment Paper – I like to cover my baking sheets with parchment paper to make cleanup a breeze
