Cheesy Breadsticks

We love bread sticks in our house and this recipe is one of our favourites. These go great with a large salad, but we have also served them with pasta, with soup… and just on their own.

  6. Cassie says:

    Thanks for the idea, Nikki! I will definetely have to try that next time.

  7. Lucie says:

    I wonder if you can either freeze the cheese sticks or part of the dough? I am single and can’t possibly eat all of these on my own. So the idea of freezing the individual portions of the dough appeals to me.

  8. Mrs January says:

    Unfortunetely, you cannot freeze these. You could always cut the recipe in half and then pop the extras into the fridge. They will last up to 3 days.

    • Anne says:

      Just curious as to why you cannot freeze them, because of the cheese maybe? Wondering if you could just dip in butter, bake and then freeze, you could add cheese when thawed and when you heat them. Could this work maybe? Love the recipe but am single, I hate to make a small batch and then have to keep eating, I will of course but not good on the calorie count! lol
