  • 3 cups warm water
  • 4 Tbs white sugar
  • 2 Tbs yeast
  • 1 tsp butter flavoring optional
  • 6.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup butter melted


  • Start with warm water, and add yeast and sugar to it. Be sure the water is not too hot or it will kill your yeast.
  • Let it sit about 5 minutes. (Watch for yeast to foam)
  • Add in butter flavoring if you are using it, don't worry, it is good without it too.
  • Then using a mixer, or by hand, stir in the flour and salt. I used a kitchen aid, and a bread hook, and it worked well.
  • Once well mixed, let it sit, covered for about 10 minutes.
  • While waiting for dough to rise a little (during the 10 minutes), melt your butter in the microwave.
  • Roll out dough into a rectangle
  • Brush with butter, and sprinkle on garlic salt.
  • Fold dough in half so that the butter mixture is in the center.
  • Use a pizza cutter to cut 1 inch strips into the dough.
  • Twist the strips to form garlic bread twists.
  • Put bread sticks or twists on an ungreased baking sheet (should fill 2 sheets)
  • Cover breadsticks and let rise for 20 minutes.
  • Turn on oven and preheat to 400 while bread is rising.
  • Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, brush on melted butter, and sprinkle on more garlic salt
  • Enjoy


Humidity and  moisture content can impact the amount of flour you need for this recipe. My best advice is to add it slowly, and use the finger test to see when you have enough. By the finger test I mean stick your finger against the dough, it should stick to your finger, but pull away clean when you pull your finger away. If you are left with residue add more flour.
