My family loves breadsticks, and this recipe was an immediate success. The breadsticks look delicate and fancy, but they aren't tricky to make using prepared bread dough. We love the herb flavor. -Marna Heitz, Farley, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

"The cheese melted and dripped off the cookie sheet I had them on. Next if I make them I would put them on a jelly roll pan. Made a mess and set off alarms in house."
