    Title: Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks
    Categories: Breads, Sauces
    Yield: 12 servings

    1/4 c Unsalted butter
    1 c Whole milk
    2 tb Instant yeast
    1 tb Granulated sugar
    1/2 ts Salt
    1 lg Egg
    3 1/2 c High-quality A-P flour

    MMMMM-----------------------GARLIC TOPPING----------------------------
    4 tb Unsalted butter
    1 ts Popcorn salt
    1/2 ts Garlic powder

    Set the oven @ 400ºF/205ºC and line a 9" X 13" baking
    sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

    In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    Then, stir in the milk and warm to 110ºF/43ºC.
    Alternatively, you may also melt and warm the milk in
    the microwave for 30-60 seconds at 50% power.

    Editor’s Tip: Don’t overheat the milk mixture. Doing so
    will kill the yeast and inhibit your dough from rising

    Next, add the yeast and sugar to the bowl of a stand
    mixer fitted with a dough hook. Slowly add the warmed
    milk to the yeast and sugar and gently stir to combine.

    Editor’s Tip: If you’re using instant yeast, you can
    move on to the next step. If using active dry yeast, let
    the yeast, sugar and milk/butter mixture proof for five
    minutes until foamy. Then, proceed to the next step.

    Next, with your stand mixer on its lowest speed, stir in
    the egg and salt before adding in 2-1/2 cups (300g) of
    flour. Continue to mix, adding the remaining 1 cup
    (120g) of flour until dough clings to the hook and the
    sides of the bowl are clean. The dough should be smooth
    and soft.

    Increase your mixer to its second speed and knead the
    dough for 3-4 minutes. Alternately, you may knead by
    hand for 6-8 minutes.

    With lightly floured hands, divide the dough into 12
    equal pieces, approximately 65 grams each.

    Then shape the dough into 12 breadsticks, and place them
    1" apart on the prepared baking sheet(s).

    Cover loosely with a tea towel or plastic wrap, and let
    the dough proof for 10-15 minutes in a warm place. The
    breadsticks should rise and puff slightly during this

    Editor’s Tip: If you have a proof setting on your oven,
    feel free to use it for this step.

    Uncover the breadsticks and transfer them to the
    preheated oven. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until
    golden brown.

    While the breadsticks are baking, prepare the garlic
    butter by melting the butter on your stovetop or in the
    microwave. Remove from heat and then stir in the salt
    and garlic powder. Set aside.

    Remove the breadsticks from the oven when golden, and
    immediately baste with the melted garlic butter. Serve
    warm with copycat Olive Garden soup and salad.
