Garlic Dill Glazed Breadsticks

Garlic Dill Glazed Breadsticks

I haven’t even attempted to make any other type of breadstick for years.  Garlic Dill Glazed Breadstics are the most delicious breadsticks I have ever come across! When you think of breadsticks, you usually think the traditional garlic and Italian seasonings, but do you think of dill? Well, you should!   No, it does not in any way resemble a pickle. But it is what sets this recipe apart from all others When the dill meets the garlic it is a happy union that will make you wonder what took it so long to get together in the first place.  The best part about making these breadsticks, is that they are ready, from start to finish, in UNDER ONE HOUR! This, my friends, is one recipe that everyone you share it with will request if forever more.  You have got to try it!  But only when you are ready…to make them for the rest of you life!

Once you have made your dough, let it rest for about 10 minutes. While dough is resting, you can start to make your glaze.

 

Garlic Dill Glaze

6 Tbs. salted butter, melted

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. dill weed

1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

Place butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for about 45 seconds or until the butter has almost melted.  Add other ingredients and stir together.  Set aside.

 

After dough has rested for about 10 minutes, break off or cut off a piece with a bench scraper about the size of a baseball.

Spray your rolling surface with non-stick spray. Roll the dough into a long rope about 18 inches long. Begin to pull the left side of the dough toward you, and push the right side away from you.  This will begin twisting the breadstick. Repeat about 3 times so the rope is fairly tightly twisted.

Take the ends of the rope and fold them up together. The dough should naturally twist together in your hands like magic. Grab the bottom, and give it a finally twist.

Place the dough twists on a greased baking sheet. Let them rise for 5-10 minutes.

  1. LOVED YOUR CLASS AT PINNER’S CONFERENCE, AND JUST MADE THESE FOR THE SECOND TIME SINCE FRIDAY #ADDICTED. EVERY TIME I MAKE THEM SO THAT THEY CLEAN THE BOWL AND THEN WHEN I MIX THEM FOR THE 6 MINUTES THEY BECOME COMPLETELY STICKY AGAIN. THEY BAKE FINE, BUT I DIDN’T KNOW IF THIS WAS NORMAL? AGAIN, LOVE THIS AND WE’LL BE USING PRETTY MUCH THIS DOUGH FOR EVERYTHING!

    1. Thanks so much for coming Kara! I actually have had that happen to me before in my Kitchenaid. I don’t know if it’s the depth of the bowl or the speed. When that happens, I just add a little more flour and turn up the speed 1 notch. That usually helps the dough stay together, and you can really develop the gluten that way. The end texture will be better if you mix it for the whole 6 minutes. It just takes some experimenting because every mixer behaves a little differently. Give those tips a try, and see if they help. Please come back and let us know how it goes!

  2. Saw your recipe on studio 5 and am trying it out tonight! I just have a quick question & I was wondering if you could clarify… After you have added all the flour so it isn’t sticking to the sides of the mixer, it says the next step is to knead for about 6 minutes. Do you take the dough out and knead by hand for 6 min, or do you leave it in your mixer and knead on low with the dough hook? Thanks!

    1. Good question. I guess I should clarify in the post. You just keep kneading in the mixer with the dough hook, although either will work. Mixers just make the work lighter! 🙂 Thanks for reading, and good luck with the dough. Please come back and tell us how it goes!

  3. can you use unsalted butter or does that affect the taste. My family is on a low sodium diet but we love breadsticks!

    1. Sure you can. The change in taste would be minimal (especially if you are used to lower sodium anyway!) You’re gonna love ’em!
