Recipe by gulf-gal

These are so easy and they make the kitchen smell heavenly. Serve these with cocktails or dinner or as a snack. A friend gave me this recipe back in the 1970's and I still make them several times a year.

Hot diggity - are these good! Probably the best garlic herb breadsticks I've ever made. Hard to believe they are made with cheap old hot dog buns. I used the ingredients just as listed, but baked them differently. After basting with the butter mixture, I divided into 4 groups of 8 sticks each. I froze 3 of the 4 portions in zip top bags for future meals. I baked 8 sticks immediately for dinner. I baked at 350F for about 10-15 minutes until crispy on the outside and still soft on the inside. The frozen packages are so easy to take out of the freezer, put in the oven, and have fresh garlic bread for a meal anytime.
