Buttery Homemade Breadsticks Recipe

Buttery Homemade Breadsticks Recipe

Ever since I had the best breadsticks EVER at family-owned Red Star Pizza in Seymour, Indiana, I have not been able to get them out of my mind! Since I can’t make that kind of drive whenever the craving hits, I will forever turn to this exceptional soft, buttery homemade breadsticks recipe!

It’s not the same. I know that. I don’t know what they do to their breadsticks but man oh man is it good. Still, it’s a wonderful substitute that is even better than my recipe for quick breadsticks! For homemade breadsticks that really satisfy, this is definitely IT.

These do involve yeast so make sure you give yourself rising time. There’s a good amount of butter in these breadsticks. It keeps them nice and soft for days! Yes, DAYS. Try this great homemade buttery breadsticks recipe option. I think you’ll really enjoy it!

I found this one on She Knows.
