Gluten free alternative to breadsticks

Top Review by Cinnamon Turtle

I tried these out as an accompaniment to a salad meal. They seem like a good starting point, but need some work. They were not much like breadsticks, as they required a fork. The comment was made that they were more like quiche. However, having had a two-week trial of gluten-free, I understand that these might fulfill a need for a garlicky-cheesy accompaniment when desperation for bread sets in. For those without gluten intolerance, adding bread crumbs or a bit of flour would likely improve the texture.
