30 Minute Soft Breadsticks

by Laura

Want some fresh homemade breadsticks to go along with your dinner? Then you need to make these 30 minute soft breadsticks.

It all begins with an easy dough recipe. It’s your usual yeast, sugar, water, flour and salt. The dough is mixed together and left to raise for 10 minutes.

After that, the dough is rolled out into a 9 x13 inch rectangle. Then is is topped with a magical mixture. it is comprised of a mixture of butter, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and parlsey. When I made this recipe for the picture, I was out of parsley. So it is missing in the photo. Anyway, this combination of ingredients is spread over the rolled out dough. The mixture is creamy, buttery, cheesy, and garlicy.

Now, all you need to do is just cut the dough in strips using a pizza cutter and bake. I like to also cut the strips in half. No need to let the dough raise before you bake these babies. These 30 minute soft breadsticks are such an easy and tasty bread to serve alsong soup, pasta, or salad. Whatever you serve them with, they will be an excellent accompaniment.

30 Minute Soft Breadsticks

  • Author: Laura
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


  • Dough:
  • 1 Tbsp yeast
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 3 to 4 cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Topping
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic salt


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast, warm water and sugar. Allow to sit for 1 minute. 
  2. Add 3 cups of the flour and salt. Mix with the dough hook until combined, adding more flour if necessary. You want the dough pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Cover and allow to raise for 10 min. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Melt 2 Tbsp of the butter and brush on the bottom of a baking sheet. Roll dough out flat into a 9 x 13 rectangle and place onto the cookie sheet.
  5. Combine all topping ingredients and spread over the top of the dough. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into 12 breadsticks.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. I like to then cut the breadsticks in half. Makes 12 servings.

I used instant yeast and I let it proof in the bowl for about 10 minutes until it got really big and foamy and then I added the flour to it but then I let it rest for like 15 minutes and then roll it out and I put Muenster cheese and cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese mixed in with the mayonnaise and garlic salt and I didn’t use any butter for the top and they turned out so good I love this recipe I’ve done it multiple times already it will definitely be a staple in my family

My kids couldn’t wait to have these again, so my 14yo made them Sunday. We subbed in 1 Tbsp butter for half the mayo in the topping and it turned out great! Thanks for a simple and delicious recipe!

I used active dry yeast (thanks for your response!) and they turned out soft and delicious. I wasn’t sure if I should melt the remaining two tablespoons of butter or just soften it or…??? I melted it. It worked fine. The family loved them! The mayo was a little much for me, but they were really soft and I’ll absolutely make these again and maybe just experiment with the topping. Do you melt or just soften the butter for the topping? Last thing…I used a cookie sheet, but would absolutely advise that it needs to be rimmed! I ended up with melted butter all over the bottom I my oven. Boo. But overall, super easy, super soft, super fast, and really good! 🙂

It’s just softened butter. I added that to the recipe and changed it from cookie sheet to baking sheet. I wasn’t thinking about cookie sheets that were not rimmed. Sorry.

My 14yo son couldn’t wait to have these again, so he made them Sunday. They turned out great! I upped the butter by a tablespoon and cut the mayo by half. Thanks for such a delicious and easy recipe! 😊

Do you use instant yeast?

Laura January 6, 2021 - 8:59 pm

I used active dry yeast but Instant would work fine too.
