Breadsticks are one of my favorite foods to make. My bread machine saves me time and effort, making this a staple side dish in my house. Recently, I ran out of Italian seasoning and mozzarella cheese, meaning I couldn't make my family's favorite breadsticks. I needed a creative solution, and I needed one fast!

Enter these garlic breadstick twists. I tweaked my original recipe and dough-manipulation method to make these culinary treats. They were a big hit on spaghetti night and my family has requested that I make more as soon as possible.

These breadsticks are easy to whip up and will quickly become your family's favorite, too!

For the dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons yeast

For the pan:

  • yellow cornmeal, a pinch or two

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • garlic salt, to taste
  • grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
Ingredients needed

Ingredients needed


  1. Place your kneading paddle in the bread pan. Put dough ingredients in the pan according to the manufacturer's instructions. I have a Hamilton Beach breadmaker and I put the wet ingredients in first, followed by the dry, and added the yeast last.
  2. Place the bread pan in your bread machine and select the dough setting. Let the machine work its magic.
  3. Lightly coat the bottom of your cookie sheet or pan with a pinch or two of cornmeal.
  4. Once your bread machine is done, set dough on a generously floured surface.
  5. Roll dough out into a large circle or rectangle, about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Use a dough cutter or sharp knife to cut the dough lengthwise into even pieces. Then cut it in half.
  7. Separate a piece and hold it in both hands. Fold it and roll it as you would while making a playdough snake. Then holding each end, gently twist the piece. Set it on your pan, pinching the ends so they hold their shape.
  8. Repeat this process for each piece.
  9. Cover the pan and let the breadsticks rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  10. While the dough is rising, set out your butter so it can soften.
  11. Once your breadsticks have risen, add the garlic powder to the butter. Mix well.
  12. Spread your garlic butter mix generously onto the breadsticks using your hands.
  13. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove the pan, but don't turn off the oven yet. Add a little garlic salt and grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the bottoms are golden brown.
  14. Serve warm breadsticks with a side of dipping sauce. These breadsticks pair well with spaghetti. Enjoy!
