Do you LOVE the smell of bread dough proofing up in the hot oven with fresh garlic and Parmesan?

It is one of my most favorites. 

Anything that has to do with homemade yeast dough, has to be one of my weakest weaknesses.  

Especially with these… Garlic Parmesan Bread Sticks!

The smell of butter, garlic, and Parmesan all surrounded by homemade dough.

It’s simply one of the best things ever!

This bread sticks recipe is so easy to whip up for dinner … on a weeknight!

You know the kind of dough that is put inside of a pressurized cardboard canister and scares you so silly when it pops?  

Well, by the time you figure out how to open one of those without jumping up to the ceiling, you’d already have fresh dough mixing up with the dough hook.  (Or your hands, of course.)

As I was saying, this homemade bread sticks recipe is really simple to put together.

After you have kneaded your dough, allow it to rest for 10 minutes, covered.  This allows the gluten to relax while it was being kneaded.  It will make the dough much easier to work with.  It’ll also make the bread sticks more tender after being baked.  

Put the dough on an unfloured surface and shape into a wide oblong loaf.

Mark out about 12 -14 lines in the dough.  It may not look like they are very big, but you are going to be rolling each piece of dough out to become longer.

Brush the melted butter with fresh garlic and seasonings onto the surface of the baking pan.

Then place each rolled dough stick onto the pan and brush more melted butter mixture on top.

Sprinkle on grated Parmesan cheese.

Pop these bread sticks straight into the preheated oven.  No need to wait for them to rise.  They will puff right up while baking.

See?  I said, these could be made on a weeknight!

These bread sticks will come out so golden and smelling oh, so good!

For as long as I’ve been making these, my sweet boys can’t seem to be patient enough for these to be placed on the table.  I swear they have their sniffers working before the timer beeps.  Because, they are already hovering by the oven before I could take these beauties out.

But, I’m in a house full of growing boys… they act as if they haven’t eaten in hours!

I know you will love these Garlic Parmesan Bread Sticks, as much as we do!  

If you’re a dipper like me, these are delicious to dip in Parmesan Cream Sauce or Roasted Garlic Spaghetti Sauce.

  1. 1 tablespoon dry active yeast (I use Fleischmann's)
  2. 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  3. 1 1/4 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
  4. 1/4 cup milk (I use whole milk.)
  5. 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  6. 1 tablespoon honey
  7. 3 - 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  8. 1 teaspoon salt
  9. 5 fresh garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  10. 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  11. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  12. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  13. 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Put yeast and sugar in a small bowl, add the warm water and stir. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat the milk with 2 tablespoons of butter, until melted. Stir in honey with milk mixture. Set aside.
  3. Put 2 cups of bread flour and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the proofed yeast and milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix by hand or with a dough hook on low speed. Slowly add the rest of the flour while it is mixing. Keep mixing until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Add additional flour one tablespoon at a time, if needed.
  5. Take dough out of the bowl and set onto a lightly floured surface. Knead it for a few more minutes. Allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes, covered.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  7. Melt 6 tablespoons of butter. Stir in the pressed or minced garlic with Italian seasoning, garlic and onion powders. Brush onto the bottom of baking pan. Set aside.
  8. Put the dough on an unfloured surface and shape into a wide oblong loaf.
  9. Mark about 12 -14 lines in the dough and cut. Roll each piece of cut dough to the width of the baking pan. (About 10 inches wide.) Place each rolled dough about 1/4 inch from each other onto the already buttered surface. Brush the rest of the melted butter mixture on top of each rolled dough. Sprinkle on Parmesan cheese.
  10. Bake on the bottom rack in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  1. Stays fresh in a closed stored container for up to 3 days.
  2. Makes 12 to 14 ten inch bread sticks.

      It really was, Roxy! I took the plate out of all of the ones I got done photographing (plus more) to my teenager outside. His eyes got so big and then brought the plate back in empty!

      Cindy, you would really love how easy these bread sticks are. Don’t let the yeast thing intimidate you… they are really fun!

    Both of my sons would be hovering around the kitchen too, Gloria. Especially my older son Blake. Such a simple recipe too, these will be made here for sure.

      Boys are funny that way, aren’t they? But, then again, I have no clue if little girls are like this… hovering in the kitchen and act as if they haven’t been fed forever. I just know boys sure do! Thanks so much, Matt! Hope you’re having a blast this weekend with your sweet little (and growing) family! 🙂

    While these would look good any time or day of the week I’m not doing carbs right now so I could seriously eat the entire pan of bready, garlickly, buttery goodness! I love how you cut the sticks up, I’ve always taken a ball of dough and rolled into a stick. Your idea is much better!

      Thanks so much, Heather! It’s always hard to figure out how to roll dough into a form… I’m still trying to get it with rolls. The complications we go through in life… haha! 🙂

    Mmm, I do love the smell of baking bread. My friend works in a bakery and I asked her if she gets sick of the smell, thus not wanting to eat the stuff, resulting in less temptation (i.e. easier to diet). She said she doesn’t get sick of the smell or food. Lol, well, a girl can try. Although I’m not sure I’d be willing to make the jump from full time attorney to baker, anyway. 😉
    Obsessed with these bread sticks, by the way! 🙂

      Tina, I have to agree with you… I definitely could not work in a bakery. Although, I’ve been dreaming of opening one maybe one day. But, I feel that I’d gain so much weight! I’m such a taste tester… which more or less turns into a meal of frosting, etc! 🙂

    Haha I hit the ceiling when I open those stupid cans too!! I hate that pop!! Even though every time it pops, I think “Oh that wasn’t scary, why was I scared to open it??” Anywho, these do look mighty easy Gloria! I’m one that’s intimidated by bread, and rarely make it from scratch. Probably because I hate yeast. However, i’m keeping this recipe for when i’m craving a fabulous garlic parm bread stick!! Thanks for sharing, Happy Tuesday!

    Oh my goodness, these look incredible Gloria! I love the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven and I know I wouldn’t be able to resist a few of these straight out of the oven. Yum, I can almost smell these – my lil man would definitely be hovering over these soft pillowy bread sticks too 🙂
