Olive Garden Breadsticks

When I tell my kids that we get to go to Olive Garden to eat, they scream with joy! Why? Because they love their breadsticks, I mean who doesn’t. So, you can only imagine their reaction when I told them I was going to make them at home. As soon as they popped out of the oven, they were excited to try them. I waited to see if my recreation of the Olive Garden breadsticks was a success and then they asked for another one! That is a success in my book! There was only one problem, I didn’t make enough! I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine did!

Now place in the first pan that you rolled and place in the oven for 6 mins. Then you want to brush them with your garlic butter mixture, make sure to roll them over too.
