Garlic breadsticks often accompany spaghetti and lasagna, but they also go great with barbecued chicken breasts and hamburgers. These garlic breadsticks taste just as good as the ones from Olive Garden.



  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
