A couple of weeks ago I shared a recipe for a yummy Cinnamon Sugar Breadstick with Cream Cheese Drizzle. I have had breadsticks on the brain since then. I love this recipe for breadsticks too but wanted something a little quicker and something with a little more cheese, garlic and butter. Sound good?
I was drooling over Pinterest one day and found a recipe for quick and easy breadsticks that the blogger claimed to be the best breadsticks so of course I had to give it a try. These definitely are quick and easy, you use frozen roll dough. I used the Rhodes brand and changed the topping a bit to suit my tastes and I think I have to agree with the blogger!
Just let the dough thaw and then form each roll into a breadstick. But before you do that you are going to cover the cookie sheet with butter and cheese!
Quantities are going to vary depending on how many breadsticks you want to make. I made 12 but you can fit up to 24 on a cookie sheet.(Just stagger them) For 12 I melted a half a stick (1/4 C) of butter and spread it onto the cookie sheet (in the area the breadsticks were going to be). I then sprinkled a nice layer of powdered Parmesan cheese (the kind in the green can). It was about a 1/2 C. Then lay the breadsticks on top of the butter and cheese and let them rise.
Then I sprinkled them with more Parmesan cheese. I have made them two different ways – the first time I used freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a mixture of seasonings.
Pop them in the oven and let them bake until they are golden brown. Just like this!
I sent a batch home with a friend that stopped by and this was his wife’s Facebook message to me:
Hubby walked in and said..”are you ready to have the best bread sticks ever?!?” Baffled I said…”I don’t know…Olive Garden’s pretty good!”..but hands down now.. he’s right! Dang lady, mouth watering..thanks for sharing!
Per hubby, we need the recipe!
So My-Linh you are getting the recipe today!
The were so yummy I made them twice in a week. The second time I made them I used the powdered Parmesan cheese on the bottom and the top and they were just as yummy!
These were so good – I had to give part of the batch away because I knew I would have no self control and eat them all. I had Jim deliver some to some friends in the neighborhood. I got a thank you email from the wife and the husband. yes, they are that good!
