Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

Hey, guys!  Happy Thanksgiving!  For our second post, we’re focusing on a restaurant-worthy side of…..breadsticks.  They’re slightly crisp and chewy, and only take 20 minutes to rise.  They’re also super addictive, which is perfect, since this recipe makes over 30 breadsticks.  Here we go!

To start, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a floured surface, kneading about 20 times or until the dough comes together and is stretchy.  Next, just roll out the dough, cut it into strips, and twist! on-cookie-sheet-2

After the dough has risen for 20 minutes, top (liberally) with butter, garlic salt, and parmesan, and bake.


It’s even simpler than our last post, (if that’s possible,) and so worth every second!  These breadsticks paired great with our spaghetti and meatballs, and would also be delicious alongside soup, grilled chicken, a glass of wine, or even your Thanksgiving Turkey!  Go ahead and give these delicious breadsticks a try!
