You can't get any easier but still tasty! I used Ma Hiker's black olive paste Black Olive Paste instead of store-bought. I loved the extra zip the cumin seed added, I toasted them in a dry pan before using. I liked Tia Mouse's suggestion of trying this with pesto, I am a basil-holic. These would be so good dipped in a marinara sauce. Thanks for a keeper, Mama! Made for ZWT5, Hell's Kitchen Angels team.

These were super yummy! I served them as part of my Greek meal during ZWT 4. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

Thanks, Mama! Yummy stuff! I couldn't find olive paste in San Diego, so I had to improvise. I used PESTO paste and subbed the cumin seeds for parmesan, to go with the pesto. It was just wonderful this way. I would be careful with the kosher salt, because they were a bit salty (I love that, but not everyone does!). I couldn't get mine to twist, so I braided them (see photo) and I thought that was even better! I'll be making variations of this for YEARS!

I made them for supper but we ate them before. I had to make the paste and I really like them and will make them again. I covered them with sesame seeds.

These are terrific! I had dough rising for hambuger buns so used it instead of the frozen. We ate a few warm yesterday and the rest today with lunch. We loved the flavors, everything really worked together. Thanks for sharing a recipe I will use again and again.

I noticed this recipe after I saw MA HIKER's review for it and I had to make it immediately. Got some bread dough from the bakery (we still have them on every corner in Greece) and brought out one of the 4(!) jars of olive spread I have in the fridge. So quick to make and delicious. Served alongside paella.

Amazing! Best right out of the oven. I made my own black olive paste (Black Olive Paste) and didn't have cumin seeds so used powdered - not as pretty but gave it the same flavor.

These are fantastic and so flavorful!!! The black olive paste is so perfect inside these breadsticks. I used refrigerated breadsticks and just followed the directions... They were short... but oh so good!!! thanks mama!
