So when I came across a recipe for bread sticks that were just like the amazing ones I get at Olive Garden
First you want to whisk the sugar, yeast and warm water in your mixer bowl until everything is well combined. Wait about 10-15 min or until the top is foamy-like. Add in half the flour, more sugar, salt and vegetable oil and mix it all together with the paddle. Once combined, switch to the hook and knead until the dough easily pulls away from the dough. If you don't already have a KitchenAid you can get one at Amazon from the link on the right. Place the dough ball into a buttered bowl and cover in plastic wrap until it's doubled in size. I waited an hour and 45 minutes.
Potato Bacon soup the other night.
1 cup and 2 Tbsp warm water (110 - 115 degrees)
1 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 tsp granulated sugar, divided
3 cups all-purpose flour (divided in half) (plus some more for rolling out the breadsticks)
1 Tbsp and 2 1/2 tsp sugar
1 3/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
Garlic salt to sprinkle on top
Combine together the warm water, yeast and sugar with a whisk in your mixer bowl. Let it sit 10-15 min. You'll notice a foamy layer on the surface. Add in the flour, more sugar, salt and oil and stir using the paddle attachment until everything is fully combined. Add in the remaining flour and switch to the hook setting. Once the dough is coming away from the sides of the mxer bowl, move the dough to a buttered bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit in a room temperature area for 1 1/2-2 hours, or until it's doubled in size.
Punch the dough down and start grabbing out chunks of it, about 2oz worth. My recipe made 14 sticks. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, while keeping the rest of the dough covered in the bowl. Roll out to your desired length and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover and let them rise an additional hour.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Bake for 11 minutes. Then broil them for an additional minute. As soon as they're out of the oven, run a butter stick across them. Top with the garlic salt and
