how would you do this without a bread machine? How would you make this in a regular oven?

Soft and flavorful just like the breadsticks we love at Olive Garden. I sprinkled Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning on a few of them, and they were delicious both ways.

I've only made it once so far, but they turned out so yummy and were easy to make! This will now be my go to recipe for breadsticks. They even freeze well. Just pop in the fridge a day or two ahead to thaw.

Great breadsticks recipe! I love using my bread machine's dough cycle to make baking bread easier. I've had this only issue of Quick Cooking for years and I can't believe I just got around to finally trying this recipe!

These were very flavorful and soft! I made these for my family and there were no leftovers! There is not a lot of garlic flavor, so next time I will add some garlic to the topping. I do not have a bread machine, so I made them without one.

Very good and soft! If you like garlic, try increasing the garlic powder in the dough or add some with the Parmesan cheese.

Thanks for this recipe, I used the dough to make a Stromboli. I had to substitute minced garlic since I didn't have any powdered but it worked out fine

This is the only breadstick recipe I've made that turned out and that I actually liked! And believe me I've tried a lot! These are so delicious. I don't have a bread machine I just kneaded the dough for a few minutes. Definitely worth a try.

I combined this recipe with one I found in a Healthy Cooking Taste of Home magazine, Prosciutto Breadsticks. I rolled prosciutto into the breadsticks. Amazing!!!
