Bacon Wrapped Parmesan Breadsticks

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

These are so easy to pop in the microwave and have a basket full for appetizers, TV snacks, or card clubs. The amounts are estimates depending on the size and number of commercial breadsticks you have available. Wrap bacon barber-pole style around the breadsticks. Cleanup is easy, because all the drippings will be absorbed into the paper towels. Serve at room temperature. Make plenty -- they are highly addictive!

I'm not going to rate these as they just didn't work for me, for starters the parmesan wouldn't stick to the bacon, the bacon wouldn't stick to the breadsticks and 5 minutes was way too long, mine were burnt after 3 minutes..I love the sound of these but they just didn't come together for me..sorry!
