Great appetizer! Made these and took them to a picnic for the buffet table. They were very well received. Given previous reviewers comments about possible sogginess, I wrapped as instructed and then put two cooling racks on top of my cookie sheet. The breadsticks went on top of the racks and any grease dripped onto the cookie sheet. Mine were very nicely crisped up. I took them out of the oven and then sprinkled the cheese and seasonings that I had already mixed up onto the breadsticks. Yummy recipe! Thanks for posting!
Saw this recipe on a FoodTV website and gave them a try tonight for my Bunko group. The recipe was requested by at least four people. They tasted terrific and looked great on the plate too! I baked mine for almost 30 mins. As suggested by another reviewer, I used garlic powder instead of salt. I noticed some of the middles of the sticks were just a bit softer than I would've liked. The next time I make these, I think I'll use a broiler pan so that all the grease drops to the bottom - this may help the middles stay crunchier.
Definitely a crowd pleaser. I only had shredded parmesan, so gave it a whirl in the food processor to break it up (only used 1/2 cup but could have used more) and mix with garlic powder. I used a thinly cut bacon and cooked for 23 minutes before we just couldn't stand waiting any longer. As it turned out--the bacon doesn't really need to be crisp--just cooked. We all loved it and will try many variations. Funny thing--most people thought it was chicken strips inside (LOL). I also realized that I misread the directions and rolled it in the cheese/garlic powder before I cooked and it worked out fine.
Great appetizer. I made it per the instructions (with the red pepper flakes). Very tasty and easy to make!
I would give this more than 5*'s just based on the many compliments I got and how many people asked for the recipe! These are so delicious! I served them at the office party last night and they were a big hit! I too would recommend using lean and thinly sliced bacon. I cut the breadsticks and bacon in half before wrapping and again after cooking and cooling in order to "stretch" the servings and to make them into a more finger food size. I would not recommend doing this because the breadsticks curled a little while cooking. Next time, I will do all the cutting into portions after cooking and cooling. DH said that he could fix these the guys' card games! These are great!Thanks Tearanii!
Could probably use vegetarian ("fake") bacon to make this vegetarian as indexed, but I would reduce the cooking time.
Great! Very easy and delicious. Probably not the most healthy choice of foods, but they're well worth it. Made these for a party and they were gone in no time. Several people requested the recipe. A super easy appetizer with lots of flavor. I'd suggest garlic powder rather than garlic salt, and lean bacon. Baked these longer than stated, about 22 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I saw these on Paula's show and knew I had to make them -- glad you posted them here!! My ten-year old son did all the work and were very delicious!!
