A delicious way to use fresh dill and rosemary from the garden. We like these breadsticks with vegetable soup or chicken salad. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (Septermber 1986)

These are the best breadsticks ever - even better than what you get in the restaurants. Have one fresh from the oven, steaming hot, with the scent of dill and rosemary. Mmmmmm! To die for! Thanks Ellie!
