Bread sticks

Do you love the smell of fresh bread baking? How about hot tasty bread sticks? Here's an easy way to enjoy fresh bread sticks you can make from store bought canned biscuits. You'll be surprised at how good these taste and how easy and inexpensive they are to prepare.

Your family will love the taste of these delicious bread sticks when you serve them along side spaghetti, lasagne, soup, or chili. Preparation time is minimal and they're ready to come out of the oven in just a few minutes. You can even invite your youngsters to help you roll them out like they would modeling clay. It's fun, quick and it's easy following these simple directions.

Things You Will Need

One can of ready to bake biscuits

Cookie Sheet and a spatula

Garlic powder or garlic salt

2 Tbsp melted butter or margarine

Pre-heated standard oven and a

Microwave oven

Step 1

Preheat the oven to the temperature suggested on the canned biscuits, usually 350 degrees.

Open the canned biscuits according to the package directions.

Separate one biscuit from the group and roll it between your hands like you would a piece of clay, creating a thin rope-like strand about 6-8 inches long.

Step 2

Carefully twist the strand of dough by holding one end and twisting the other end. Place the twisted dough into position across the cookie sheet, leaving room for the remaining bread sticks. To hold the shape of the twisted dough in place, press down lightly on each end.

Repeat this step with the remaining biscuits, allowing 1-2 inches between them so they can expand and become crisp.

Step 3

Microwave the butter or margarine in a microwave proof container for about 10 seconds or until it melts. Add a few seconds at a time if needed to get it to the right consistency.

Using a spoon or a pastry brush, dab a small amount of butter or margarine over each bread stick on the cookie sheet.

Step 4

Lightly sprinkle the buttered bread sticks with garlic salt or garlic powder once they are in place on the cookie sheet. Use your imagination to create tasty bread sticks for breakfast or as a side for spaghetti, lasagne, chili, soup or just by themselves.

Step 5

Bake your creation in a pre-heated oven for around 9-10 minutes per the directions on the biscuit package. Watch them carefully to avoid over cooking. Use a spatula to remove the baked bread sticks from the cookie sheet and place them into a napkin lined bowl or serving dish. Enjoy!
These easy creations will delight your family as an alternative to garlic bread or plain biscuits. They're quick, inexpensive and fun to make. You can create a variety of bread sticks by substituting other spices like cinnamon and sugar. Or try them with parsley flakes, oregano and sesame seeds.

Tips & Warnings

Make clean-up a breeze by covering the cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spraying it with a non-stick spray. It's best to use the dull side of the foil to avoid overcooking the bottom of the bread sticks.

Use caution when removing the cookie sheet from the oven as it will be very hot.
