How to Make Olive Garden Bread Sticks


If you love the bountiful baskets of bread sticks at your neighborhood Olive Garden restaurant, you can make your own delicious Olive Garden style bread sticks at home, and enjoy them any time you like. Olive Garden guards their bread stick recipe closely, but you can make a very close, and tasty, replica.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 loaf of frozen bread dough, thawed to room temperature
  • Olive oil or regular non-stick cooking spray
  • 3 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  • Measure the dried oregano, and holding it over a plate or a piece of waxed paper, rub it between your thumb and forefinger until it becomes a fine powder. Set it aside.

  • Coat your fingers with cooking spray or coat them with olive oil, and shape and roll the bread dough into sticks. A loaf of bread dough should make eight to ten bread sticks.

  • Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and place the bread sticks on the pan, about 3 inches apart.

  • Put the pan in a warm, draft-free place and let the bread sticks rise for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until they double in size.

  • Mist the bread sticks lightly with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle the oregano and garlic salt lightly over the top.

  • Bake the bread sticks until they're golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and set it on a wire rack to cool. Serve the Olive Garden bread stick warm, or allow them to cool. The bread sticks will taste fresh for up to two days.
