RECIPE: Pull-Apart Garlic & Parmesan Breadsticks

I whipped these up to go with a spaghetti dinner last week and my family thought they'd died and gone to heaven! An enticing bread can make even an "ordinary" meal seem extra special. Fortunately, these breadsticks are quick and easy to prepare, so you can be rewarded with lots of "oohs" and "ahs" without having to go to a lot of trouble. Get them rising before you start your main meal prep, and they'll be done in time to serve them fresh from the oven.


1 loaf worth (1/3 recipe) Whole Wheat Refrigerator Dough
1/4 cup melted butter
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2-4 tbsp Parmesan cheese

Drizzle a small amount of the butter in the bottom of a 7x11" lasagna pan, and spread around so the entire bottom of the pan is coated. Divide the bread dough into 12 equal portions. Using your hands, roll out each portion into a long, skinny rope just a bit shorter than the width of your lasagna pan. Place the breadsticks in the pan, arranging them so they are evenly spaced across. Add the minced garlic to the remaining butter and drizzle over top of the breadsticks, then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over top. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for about 15-20 minutes. Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.


  1. AAARRRGGGHHH! Why couldn't I have read this BEFORE my family ate spaghetti today for lunch???

  2. We just had spaghetti for supper; finished up about 5 minutes ago!:-) Bread looks awesome. I will have to try it.

  3. Looks like spaghetti was a popular meal amongst my readership yesterday, lol! At least you guys will have the recipe for next time :)

    I polished off the last one from the photo with a bowl of lentil soup last night.

  4. I am definitely going to try some of this refrigerator bread dough. I am curious though, why is there mashed potatoes in it?

  5. Olivia - the mashed potatoes help the dough retain moisture in the fridge and provide a food source for the yeast, both of which allow the dough to keep in the refrigerator for a full week before using.
