INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1
    (11 ounce) can pillsbury breadsticks
  • 1
    egg, beaten
  • 2
    tablespoons kosher salt (or you can you poppy seeds, or even grated parmesan, use your favorite pretzel toppings, I prefer ju)
  • 8
    ounces Velveeta cheese (I like spicy)
  • 2
    tablespoons Dijon mustard (you can add more if you want more tang)
  • 3
    tablespoons dark beer (if you don't want to use beer, you can use milk, but the beer to me just really adds a nice flavor)
  • 1
    teaspoon grated onion
  • 2
    tablespoons diced bacon, sauteed (optional as a garnish)

DIRECTIONS

  • Cheese sauce -- Add the beer (or milk), cheese, mustard, and onion to a small sauce pan and heat up. Garnish with the sauteed bacon.
  • Bread -- Separate the 12 bread sticks and then cut each lengthwise in half to make 24 bread sticks. Now roll each one to make a small rope. Now make a knot. I don't care how you make the knot, use any design you want. I like to make a '"O" the cross the bottom and twist and then flip the cross piece back over the "O", but again, just make a knot, it isn't important that they look perfect.
  • Brush the breadstick with egg and then add the salt. Bake 375 for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve with the cheese sauce. The perfect quick appetizer.
