Air Fryer, Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks

Everyone is familiar with bread, I come from a large Italian family, where we have bread at every meal. In recent times, after I had my own family, I let my homemade bread fall to the side, because there is so many great Artisan bread that you can get from the grocery stores these days. But, nothing beats the smell of fresh bread in your own home. So, today, I decided I will bake a loaf for my family and of course myself. (My oldest son Ethan absolutely adores bread, so he is always my taster, if he likes it, it always goes on to the website, if he doesn’t like it, I go back to the kitchen to tweak it)







  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the yeast, warm water, and sugar. Within 5 minutes, the yeast should start to foam, if it does not do not continue on, it means that the yeast is old or expired. This recipe will not work.
  2. After 5 minutes. Notice the foam.
  3. Add the salt, flour, and butter.
  4. Once the dough is mixed, knead for a few minutes.
  5. Shape the bread into long breadsticks, Then let sit for about an hour (they will double in size) and then brush the melted butter on top and sprinkle with Italian seasonings.
  6. Set the breadsticks into the air fryer and set the temperature to 320 degrees F, for 5 minutes. (air fryer setting)
  7. Plate, serve and enjoy!
