There are only a few things that I like at Olive Garden. One of them is the bread sticks. I finally I am able to make them at home and I must say they are goooooddd. Here another great CopyCat Recipe
  • 1 cup warm water (110F)
  • 1¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar, divided
  • 3 – 3¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  1. Add yeast and 1 tsp of the sugar to the warm water, mix until yeast dissolves. Allow to rest for 10 minutes
  2. In the bowl add 1½ cups flour, yeast mixture, 1 tbsp sugar,, 1½ tsp salt and olive oil, mix on low to combine.
  3. Add in remaining 1½ cups flour and knead mixture for 7 minutes on medium high on my kitchen aid machine I have it on 8, until the dough is smooth and elastic. The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl but still be slightly sticky. Add remaining ¼ cup of flour, if needed. Turn the oven on to 170F. Take the dough out of the bowl and add some olive oil put the dough back in the bowl and turn over so the dough is greased on both sides. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap. Turn the oven off and put the bowl with the dough in the oven and let it rise for about 1 hour. It should be doubled.
  4. Once risen, punch and divide it into 12 equal parts. Roll each piece of dough into a rope and transfer to a greased cookie sheet or use silpat. Cover and let the dough rise again for 1 hour. Spray the top of the bread with some olive oil, that will help them to get them golden. Bake bread sticks at 425F for 10-12 minutes.
