Kel’s (Almost) Homemade Garlic and Cheese Breadsticks


Kel's almost homemade breadsticksI found a version of this recipe for breadsticks on Krusteaz’s* website and since I already had a box of its no-knead, country white artisan bread mix, I decided to give it a try. I’m not sure if I followed the recipe correctly since the wording of it was somewhat ambiguous, but I did have great success preparing these breadsticks how I thought was right. They had a wonderful flavor with just enough cheese and garlic to be heavenly. Your kitchen will smell awesome, too.

What I like about this recipe is that you don’t have to knead the dough — a big plus in my book. However, it does take a while to make these, mainly because you have to let the dough rise. If you leave about three hours from start to finish, you should be good to go.

Ingredients (Makes 8 breadsticks)

Kel's Almost homemade breadsticks ingredients

  • I box (14 oz.) Krusteaz No Knead Country White Artisan Bread Mix
  • 1 ¼ cups warm water
  • 1/3 cup grated cheese (I used a blend of parmesan, Romano and asiago), plus more for sprinkling on breadsticks
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder), plus more for sprinkling on breadsticks
  • 2 tablespoons flour (not pictured)
  • 1 egg white from a large egg (not pictured)


In a large bowl, mix the bread mix, enclosed yeast package, cheese and garlic powder.

Place flour yeast cheese and garlic powder in large bowl

Add the water and stir until moistened. The dough will be sticky.

Add water and mix well

Cover and let rise until the dough has doubled in size, about 2 hours. Sprinkle dough with flour, and transfer to a floured cutting board. Let dough rise for another 40 minutes, uncovered.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut the dough into 8 even sections.

Cut dough into eight pieces

Form each section into a breadstick by rolling the dough between your hands or else on a cutting board. Place the breadstick on a greased baking sheet.

Brush the breadsticks with the egg white and sprinkle them with more of the cheese and garlic powder. Do this for both sides of the breadsticks.
