Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 piece) equals 184 calories, 7 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 10 mg cholesterol, 557 mg sodium, 26 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Stir in bouillon and garlic powder. Remove from the heat; let stand until bouillon is dissolved.
  2. Meanwhile, unroll breadsticks and separate into 12 sticks. Place eight sticks lengthwise side by side on a greased baking sheet. Place another breadstick along the bottom of the house, stretching dough as needed. To create the entrance, move two center sticks so they extend 2 in. above the other sticks.
  3. To form the roof, place two of the remaining sticks on top of the house so they extend about 1 in. beyond the sides. Cut remaining breadsticks as needed to fill spaces beneath the roof. Gently pinch edges of breadsticks together to seal seams. Brush with the butter mixture; sprinkle with rosemary and thyme.
  4. Bake at 375° for 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before carefully transferring to a serving platter. Yield: 6 servings.
