Homemade Garlic Bread Sticks
Making homemade garlic breadsticks
The smell of anything baking warms the soul and the heart. It makes our mouths water for the tasty smell coming from the oven. The recipe below is one I have made for many years. It has been a BIG hit with friends and family. The recipe is one I enjoy making and taking as a dish during the holidays as it goes well with almost any meal. During the holidays whenever I'm asked to help my friends and family say please bring your homemade garlic bread sticks. I myself use Rhodes bread dough as I like their bread.
1 Package of Frozen Bread Dough
1 Stick of butter (melted)
1 Container of Parmesan cheese
1 Bottle of Garlic Salt
Remove 2 rolls of frozen bread dough and let thaw for about 2 hours. Do not let the dough completely thaw, you want it to be still slightly frozen so you can slice it easily.
Take one loaf of still partially frozen bread dough and slice into 1 inch pieces and set aside. Continue on and slice second loaf the same way. Each loaf will do about 12 slices, depending on how you slice the bread dough.
Take a cookie sheet and spray lightly with cooking spray. Now take a slice of bread dough and roll back and fourth between your hands forming a long rope. Place it on the cookie sheet. Do the same with the other slices of bread dough. Placing each piece next to the others. Turn on oven and let it warm for only a couple of minutes and turn off. Then place the bread sticks in oven and just let the bread sticks rise for a couple of hours or more.
Once your bread sticks are very puffy and fat remove from the oven and heat oven to 350. While waiting for oven to heat, brush the bread sticks with the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt. Then generously sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes or till golden brown. Remove from oven and brush the tops again with melted butter and sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese. Serve warm and enjoy!
