Surprisingly quick and delicious, you will be surprised at how quickly you can whip up fresh from scratch breadsticks! If you don’t want to make your own dough, these do work beautifully with frozen bread dough or rolls as well!
We love these in our house either as a snack or served alongside a pasta or lasagna dish! If you don’t have the cheeses listed below, these work great with pretty much any cheese you have on hand! This recipe can easily be doubled.
Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks
- 1 tablespoons active dry yeast
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- ¼ cup warm water (110°F)
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cups hot water
- 1 tablespoons sugar

- 1 ½ tablespoons butter melted
- 1 clove garlic minced
- ⅛ cup cheddar cheese shredded
- ⅛ cup fresh parmesan cheese shredded
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

- In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, water, sugar and salt. Add in the yeast mixture and gently stir. Add remaining flour and stir until completely combined.
- Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and roll into breadsticks. Place on parchment paper.
- Preheat oven to 400°F while letting the dough rise (rise about 15 minutes).
- In a small bowl, combine butter and minced garlic. Microwave 20 seconds or until butter is melted.
- Brush butter mixture over breadsticks. Top with cheeses.

these are so good
Thanks, Patricia! So glad you are enjoying them.
I am making this right now but the recipe calls for 3 C. flour and in the instructions it says to use 2 C. flour so I’m going to eyeball the dough to see if it needs more flour. Also, can this dough be prepared a few hours ahead of time before baking? I won’t be baking it for another couple of hours but I like to prepare ahead of time. We love fresh bread and I bake it often so hopefully these will be a new family favorite! Thanks! :-)
The remaining flour is added in the same step. Hope they were great!
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, water, sugar and salt. Add in the yeast mixture and gently stir. Add remaining flour and stir until completely combined.
What kind of flour should I use?
Hi Anne, we use all-purpose flour for this recipe.
I love it it’s amazing
