  • 1 cup Water warm
  • 3 tablespoons Oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Yeast
  • For Topping
  • 2 tablespoons Melted Butter to brush on top
  • Coarse Salt for Sprinkling.


  • Mix the warm water with the yeast and a pinch of sugar. Set the yeast aside to proof about 10 minutes.
  • While the yeast is proofing, measure half the flour with the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, and mix in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the proofed yeast and oil to the flour mixture. Stir until to combine and whip until the dough falls in sheets. This step can be done with a mixer or by hand.
  • Add more flour a half cup at a time and mix into the dough by hand until the dough isn’t sticky.
  • Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes or until smooth.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl and let it rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough and divide into 16-18 pieces.
  • Roll the pieces of dough into thin sticks, and place on a greased or lined baking sheet.
  • Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake the breadsticks that have risen for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and while still hot, brush the breadsticks with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt.
