Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks


Easy homemade garlic breadsticks topped with parmesan, mozzarella and cheddar.


  • 40 mls luke warm water
  • 160 mls luke warm milk
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar (divided)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 3 tbsp butter (melted & divided)
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese (grated)
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese (grated)


  1. In a small cup, pour the lukewarm water and add 1/2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp yeast to it. Stir it and let it stay undisturbed for 10-12 minutes. Let the yeast get activated to be used for the next step.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add 2/3rd quantity of flour, lukewarm milk, remaining sugar, one tbsp of butter, salt and the activated yeast mixture and mix using a spoon until a sticky paste is formed. Mix for about 1-2 minutes. Add the remaining flour and knead the dough with your hands stretching it thoroughly. Knead the for about 6-8 minutes until everything properly comes together.
  3. You may have to add some extra flour - 3 to 4 tablespoons. Do not add a lot of flour as the dough should be sticky and the extra flour should just be able to bring everything together. You can also rub some melted butter on your palms to bring the dough together. Transfer the dough to a clean bowl and cover it with kitchen cloth before placing it (covered) in a warm place for 1 hour.
  4. After one hour, the dough would have risen. Punch down the dough to remove the bubbles formed by the yeast.
  5. Line a cookie sheet/ baking tray with parchment paper and brush some butter on it. Spread the dough on the sheet by pressing and stretching the dough with your hands. Flatten the dough with your hands so that the entire sheet is covered including the corners. Cover the sheet and keep it covered in a warm place for 2 hours. The dough would have doubled by now.
  6. Preheat the oven. Mix together the remaining 1 tbsp melted butter with garlic in a separate bowl and spread this mixture evenly over the risen dough. 
  7. Mix together the three different cheeses except for 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese (to be used later for sprinkling) Spread the grated cheese over the dough.
  8. Place the sheet in the preheated oven for 25 minutes at 170 degree celsius. 
  9. After 25 minutes, take the sheet out of the oven and let it stand undisturbed for about 5-7 minutes. Now cut the garlic breadsticks (as shown in the post above) and sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese and bake for another 10 minutes.
