You need this recipe in your life!
A while back in my Perfect Pizza Crust post, I confessed I used to be intimidated by yeast. Well these Easy Garlic Parmesan Butter Breadsticks was the recipe that changed all that. Because these breadsticks truly are EASY. But equally important, these breadsticks are da bomb! (90’s flashback!) They are guaranteed to satisfy your cravings for restaurant style endless
salad and breadsticks at home and create delicious memories along the way!
I can’t devour these soft, buttery bites without remembering family gatherings at my sister’s house, (yes my amazing sister who gave me my first recipe binder and gave me her kidney), with kids in ziti smeared faces running everywhere with a breadstick in each hand…okay, we all had a breadstick in each hand. So with dinner to prepare for 10+ people and 5 kids, my sister would still manage to bake a double batch of these heavenly breadsticks for all of us. Because she’s awesome like that. And because these breadsticks are easy like that.
In efforts to carry on this tradition, I recently I brought these easy buttery breadsticks to my sister-in laws house. A couple weeks later I got a text from my mother in-law who was watching my nieces saying, “I’m with Miri (9) and Brynn (7) and they are talking about the most delicious thing they’ve ever had and hands down it is your breadsticks! Can you tell them how to do it?”
So for Miri and Brynn and and for everyone else who wants to start a tradition of restaurant style breadsticks at home, this recipe is for you!
But before you make them, I have let you know I debated on whether or not to call them, “Ugly Duckling Breadsticks” because every time I line them up on the baking sheet, I am worried they won’t “turn out” because they start out, well…ugly…They are thin and flat, uneven and you can see every imperfection…
But then they start to rise…
And then bake in a bath of butter until golden…(I never said these were diet breadsticks!)
And when you pull them out of the oven they smell like freshly baked garlic bread. And then they are soft. And buttery. And garlicy. And parmesany. And beautiful! And DELICIOUS!
So delicious, they might just be the “most delicious thing you’ve ever had!”
