I usually try to keep a box of frozen garlic bread in my freezer for the occasional spaghetti dinner that needs a little something extra. But recently, for a family dinner, I decided to try my hand at homemade garlic bread sticks.
I love the recipe because it was so easy and quick!
No more frozen garlic bread for this family!
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 tablespoon instant yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Parmesan cheese, grated
Mix all the ingredients (except the melted butter) in the bowl of your stand mixer. Knead for three minutes. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
Heat oven to 375º.
Spread the melted butter onto an 11x17 baking sheet.
Roll out the dough about 1/4 to 1/2 inch think and cut into strips. Be careful not to make them too long. Twist slightly and place about 1/2 inch apart on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle with garlic salt and some other herbs of your choice (basil or thyme...or something finely crushed) and some grated Parmesan cheese.
Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise for about 30 minutes.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
