Italian Dipping Sticks Recipe

Italian Dipping Sticks Recipe

This is a favorite snack in our house during the Super Bowl. I season refrigerated breadsticks before baking, then serve them with warm pizza sauce for dipping. —Michelle Revelle, Guyton, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. Unroll breadstick dough; cut each piece in half widthwise and separate. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Add dough pieces, a few at a time, and shake to coat.
