CHEESY BREADSTICKS

I had these amazing cheesy breadsticks at a restaurant recently and couldn’t wait to come home and re-create them. My favorite part- aside from how delicious they are- is how easily they come together. Start to finish from scratch in just under an hour- yeah! I created a video that shows you just how easy they’re made!

Easy Homemade Cheesy Breadsticks - Butter With A Side of BreadCheesy Breadsticks

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 TBSP yeast
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 TBSP oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 1/2- 3 cups flour
  • 3 TBSP + 2 TBSP melted butter, divided
  • 1 tsp garlic salt (optional but delicious)
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella, Parmesan and Monterey Jack are our faves!)

Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a mixing bowl and let sit for about 3-4 minutes, until yeast is bubbling up. Add in oil, salt, garlic, onion powder and flour. Start with 2 1/2 cups of flour, then add more until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. (I use a mixer for this part as it makes it just so much easier!) Continue mixing for an additional 3-4 minutes, then cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 15 minutes. In cold weather, I like to turn my oven on for about 3 or 4 minutes, then turn it off and let my dough rest in the oven.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

Spray counter top and rolling pin with non-stick cooking spray and roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Brush with 3 TBSP melted butter and 1 tsp garlic salt, if desired. Sprinkle the top half of your dough rectangle with 2-3 cups shredded cheese. In the video, I used 2 cups of cheese, but if you adore those oozing cheese types of recipes, use 3 cups. Take the bottom half of the rectangle and fold it up over the top half, so that it rests on top of the cheese. Press edges to seal. Use a pizza cutter to cut 1″-2″ strips of cheesy dough. Gently take each strip and twist a couple times. Some cheese will fall out- if you use 3 cups of cheese, I recommend 2″ strips, instead of skinnier 1″ ones. Line cookie sheet with twisted dough.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until dough is golden brown and some cheese is bubbling.

Let cool. Dip in marinara sauce or ranch dressing for an added treat!

  1. I am SO sad it took me this long to find this recipe, it was deliiiish! I actually used my rapid rise yeast and the dough was so easy to work with. Me and my daughter LOVE cheese so we used Provolone, Asiago, Parm, Mozz, Colby and Monterey. My toddler squealed while cheese string hung out her mouth lol! Awesome recipe, definitely saving this! =)
  2. Jessica, I'm looking for cheesy breadsticks that are hard and crunchy like the ones from Trader Joe's. Do you have a recipe that would make these breadsticks? Joyce
