Garlic Breadsticks

Garlic Breadsticks via elisebakesI used this recipe from King Arthur Flour, but I used a DIY self-rising flour (you just add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1 tsp salt for each cup of flour).  They had a biscuit-like consistency and texture, but they had a great flavor.  My brother was over for dinner that night and he said they were a little garlicky – I would like to add that there is no such thing as too much garlic.  I think the garlic chunks on top were just a little much for him, but I thought that made it all the better.  I served them with homemade alfredo sauce – yum!  Would I make these again?  I don’t know, my husband really liked them and they were very easy, so probably.

Garlic Breadsticks  

  • 8 Tbsp butter (1 stick), cut into pieces
  • 4 cloves of garlic,
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup milk 
  1. Line a 9×13 with tin foil and preheat oven to 450.
  2. As oven is heating, place the butter in the pan and put it in the oven to melt the butter.  Be sure to watch it and remove as soon as the butter has melted.   Add the garlic to the pan and use a spoon to spread it out throughout the pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together.
  4. Add the milk and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.  Form the soft dough into a ball and gently fold it over three or four times.
  5. On a generously floured surface, roll it out and cut it using a sharp knife.  I made my breadsticks a bit bigger than the ones in the recipe because I didn’t want quite as many – I think I had 10 total.
  6. Place the bread sticks in the pan and turn them over to coat both sides together.  I also used a spoon to scoop the garlic pieces on top of the breadsticks.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes, until light golden brown.
