serves/makes: 8recipe id: 1757
1 loaf frozen bread dough, thaw in bowl at room temp
non-stick cooking spray
dry oregano leaf, rub to a powder between fingers
When dough is soft enough to knead, spray your fingers with Pam or oil and knead just until you can shape into cigar-sized pieces (about 8 to 10). Place these 3" apart on Pam-sprayed cookie sheets. Let rise in warm place until doubled - about 1-1/2 hours.
Then holding cooking spray about 8" from sticks, lightly spray top of each and then dust with garlic powder and oregano.
Bake at 375 degrees F about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on rack to serve within a day or two.

Super easy way to get tasty breadsticks! Frozen bread dough will keep in your freezer for long periods of time so you can easily keep the ingredients on hand for when you need them. You can also use frozen roll dough in place of the bread dough.

Very easy. Had a little trouble rolling the dough out to look like OGs breadsticks though. Tasted good.

I was also wondering about the bread ingredient. What exactly is "1 loaf unfrozen bread"? I assume it's unbaked bread in the freezer. Is that right? Or is it dough? Can you use the pizza dough from bakery?
It's frozen bread dough, thawed

I have never had a breadstick from Olive Garden that had oregano on it.

i also worked at Olive Garden and tiffani IS right about how we prepare them. Although the breadsticks are not "magically" made, i think what she is saying is this is supposed to be the "Olive Garden" recipe, and it is not.
No, these are not supposed to be the original recipe. These are close to the original based on the submitter's "best guess" at how to make them.

You are putting too much into this! I work at Olive Garden, we use precooked breadsticks, We brown them in a convection oven at 450 for 3 minutes then slather them with liquid margarine and a simple garlic salt. No oregano, no painstaking process of actually baking them or hand forming them. Sorry to disappoint you!

Regarding the comment: "I work at Olive Garden, we use precooked breadsticks"
How precisely do you think the breadsticks you use get made? Magic? I'd much rather make the recipe this way. And the breadsticks I've had there have more than garlic on them so I'm not sure your "review" was spot on.
