Make them as a side dish or as an appetizer – either way, these easy-peasy garlic breadsticks are a total crowd pleaser! They’re crazy quick and easy to make, mouthwatering as can be, and always garner tons and tons of compliments. If you make these breadsticks for a party, be ready to share this recipe!

If you’re baking on a budget, I have great news for you! These breadsticks call for just 4 simple and inexpensive ingredients. You’ll just need some refrigerated breadsticks, an egg, crushed sour cream and onion potato chips, and a dash of garlic salt to whip up these bad boys.

While I do love a good homemade recipe, sometimes it can be SO much fun to dress up the store-bought stuff, and that’s exactly what this recipe does! I’m a firm believer in working smarter, not harder… And tossing some refrigerated breadsticks in tasty ingredients like these is definitely a smart way to make them a million times more delicious than even some strictly homemade recipes.

  • GARLIC SALT: 1 tsp garlic salt

How to Make Easy Garlic Breadsticks

PREPARE. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat.

ROLL THE DOUGH. Let’s make some breadsticks, shall we?! First unroll the refrigerated dough, then separate it into 12 separate sticks.

TWIST. Twist each breadstick three times and place them 1 inch apart on the baking sheets.

MAKE IT TASTY! Time to dress ’em up! Brush each twisted breadstick with egg before sprinkling on the crushed potato chips and garlic salt.

BAKE. Bake the breadsticks for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown.

ENJOY! Serve these bad boys nice and warm with a bowl of marinara sauce for dunking, and enjoy!

Variations to Try

  • Change up the flavor of chips if you’d like! While I find that sour cream and onion chips best compliment the garlic powder, there are plenty of other chips out there for you to choose from.
  • Pillsbury breadstick dough is my favorite, but you could always use another brand (or even a homemade recipe instead) if you’d like.
  • ALWAYS serve these breadsticks with marinara sauce! It’s the official rule of breasticks. I prefer plain red marinara sauce with a little cheese sprinkled in the mix, but you could always use a spicy or garlicky sauce if that best suits your needs.

Tips and Tricks for Easy Garlic Breadsticks

  • These breadsticks are best served fresh out of the oven. If you’re making them as a side dish or appetizer, make sure you time it right so they can be enjoyed still warm. However, if you do have leftover breadsticks, they’ll stay fresh in the fridge for about 2-3 days. Reheat them in the oven for best results.
  • Don’t skip out on the potato chips! They’re what really make these breadsticks stand out from others. They not only contribute to the overall flavor, but they also add an incredible crunch that you’re gonna love.
  • Avoid over baking these breadsticks. Once they’re a pretty golden color at the end of the baking time, they’re ready to go! You don’t want them to burn or lose their fluffy consistency.

Dressing up store-bought stuff is a major hobby of mine. As a mom, it’s impossible to find the time to make EVERYTHING from scratch! That’s why I like recipes like this one, where I can take a store-bought item and make it my own in a few easy steps.
