These Garlic Twisty Breadsticks are absolutely DIVINE. Give me a plate full of creamy alfredo pasta and one of these and I’ll be the happiest diner ever. Besides yummy, they are also really easy (especially for how fancy shmancy they look). They are perfect to serve when you’re having company because they look like you went to a lot of work. They’re pretty simple though. Are you ready for me to walk you through it?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 Tbsp. yeast
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 1 Tbsp. oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 4 c. flour
- 1/2 cup melted butter, divided
- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
- 16 – 12″ wooden skewer sticks
And here’s what you do:
In a bowl mix the yeast, sugar, and warm water together and let sit for 2-3 minutes until foamy.
Add oil, salt, and flour and either knead by hand or using dough hook for about 5 minutes. (If dough seems too sticky, just add a little more flour).
Remove dough and spray the bowl with cooking spray. Place dough back in the bowl turning once to coat, then cover with a towel and let rise until doubled. (About 45 minutes.)
Divide dough into 16 equal parts. Roll each part into a 16-18 inch long snake.
Moisten the top and bottom (3/4″) of the skewer with water. Leaving about 1/2 inch at the top and bottom,wrap the dough around the skewer down to the bottom.
Hang skewers over the two sides of a 9×13 inch pan, so the bread is above, but not touching the pan. Let rise until doubled again. (abt 30 min). Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until golden.
Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup melted butter, garlic salt, rosemary, and Parmesan cheese. Immediately brush seasoned butter mix on breadsticks when they come out of the oven. They’ll have the perfect herby and buttery flavor, and the brushed on butter also keeps them deliciously soft.
Hope you enjoy these. I might just have to whip up some homemade alfredo for dinner to make my evening perfectly yummy.
