These soft Parmesan Butter Breadsticks will make your Italian dinner complete! A lightly sweetened dough that tastes better than Olive Garden.
We love some buttery bread. Have you noticed that most of our bread recipes have “butter” in the title? Check out buttery biscuits, buttery dips…and don’t forget buttery rolls! Those are all some amazing breads.
These Parmesan Butter Breadsticks were one of those recipes that my mom waited to long to pull out of her recipe box. My mom wanted to try them one weekday afternoon for dinner, and I was more than happy to bake something good again.
Breadsticks and Parmesan butter. What could go wrong?
My first bite reminded me of Olive Garden. That’s always a good sign! Their breadsticks are amazing. I always eat too many and get stuffed before my meal even comes. These breadsticks aren’t meant to be exactly a copycat version of those popular breadsticks, but the texture is the same. Soft, warm, and chewy.
Don’t get discouraged that this recipe takes a little time. You have to mix the dough, let it rise, shape the breadsticks, let them rise again. I honestly would rather something much quicker. But, when the result is as good as a warm, buttery breadstick? I can make an exception.
The Parmesan butter is really easy to make. All it is is Parmesan, butter, and a little garlic powder. When the butter soaks in, it makes the breadstick seem even softer.
Am I making you hungry yet?
This recipe makes about 3 dozen 8″ breadsticks. That’s a lot, but trust me, they don’t last long! They’re the perfect pairing with a pile of spaghetti and meatballs.

I tried these the other day and found they were really sweet – would probably taste good with brown sugar and cinnamon butter. Made them again today with 1/2 the sugar and liked them much more!
Yes, I’m hungry and you are totally speaking my language! 🙂 There has never been a breadstick or bread of any kind that I haven’t loved and these look just awesome! I suspect hubby and I would be battling over the last one. Pinning and sharing – have a happy weekend!
homemade bread is NOT something I’ve perfected but these breadsticks made me want to keep trying!!
I’ve made these twice. And twice my family couldn’t eat the rest of their dinner because they ate so many of these, LOL! We absolutely love them – thank you so much for posting this recipe. I changed nothing from the original 🙂
