Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

I think my children could live on breadsticks, and these Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks are our absolute favorite. 

Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks

Whether dipped in warm marinara sauce or a bowl of hot soup, we just can’t seem to get enough!

And I love that these breadsticks are so easy to make. They use just a few simple ingredients and have a short rise time.

Which is great if you’re like me and forget that you wanted to make homemade bread for dinner until it’s too late.

Parmesan cheese and garlic are a classic combination, but other varieties of cheese work well too.

Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks

Preparation 20 mins Cook Time 20 mins Total Time 40 mins


  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Coarse salt, for sprinkling


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm water, yeast and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in olive oil and salt.
  2. Gradually add the flour until a soft dough forms. Let dough raise for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, stir together melted butter and minced garlic.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a large square, about 16×16 inches. Brush dough with half of the garlic butter. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Fold dough in half, then cut into 1 inch wide strips. Twist strips and place on 2 lightly greased baking sheets. Allow breadsticks to raise for 15-20 minutes while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush breadsticks with remaining garlic butter and sprinkle with coarse salt.

  1. These look awesome! I could totally live on breadsticks too. I have to avoid those restaurants that offer all you can eat breadsticks 🙂

  2. Ummm yeah – I’ll take about 100. I could live on breadsticks – for forever. YUM!

  3. Bread sticks got my kids through many a meal away from home that they otherwise didn’t want to touch. And for that reason alone, they will always have a special place in my heart.

  4. Esta delicioso!! me encanta!

  5. Vow loved them they look tempting and I am craving for it now… great clicks

  6. Spotted these on Foodgawker, and I’m going to make them tonight!!! I actually have this recipe, and I make it all the time, but I LOVE the way you fold the dough over and then twist. They just look so pretty!!! Thanks for the little Ah Ha moment this morning:)

  7. Found this on food gawker and came after it. Looks perfect and sounds very easy too. Pinning it!!

  8. I love how easy these are and I’m such a bread lover – pinned!

  9. These were great! Quick, easy and delish! Will make again, my kids looooved them 🙂

  10. Recipe looks great, will try this out with my kids :). I only have instant yeast. Would I need to modify the recipe? (maybe leave out water and sugar and add yeast in step 3?)


  11. Sooooo good!!! We had spaghetti for dinner and this recipe was an awesome addition. I did add a sprinkle of Italian seasoning and garlic salt at the end… Definitely a new found staple in my kitchen!!!
