Garlic Cheese Breadsticks

Now tell me who does not like a soft garlicky cheesy breadstick? These breadsticks are the perfect addition to a plateful of Italian Spaghetti or a serving of Lasagna.

These homemade breadsticks are soft, yet crispy on the outside and the cheesy part, you just cannot go wrong!

When it comes to serving these Garlic Cheese Breadsticks, you better make a double batch. Your family or guests are going to forget there is other food to eat.

This recipe is my version of what all these big name pizza stores deliver, only better. I noticed that whenever we ordered pizza from a take out location, the Garlic Cheese Bread was the first thing to be completely eaten. I knew that I had to make my version and get it up here for all of you.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Could I use a pre-made pizza dough?

You certainly could, I cannot guarantee that it will be anywhere near as good as my homemade. This homemade version is so easy to make and even tastier to eat, I think you should at least try it one time before using a pre-made dough.

            Can I leave the garlic off?

What I would do is cut back on the amount of garlic used if you have people that are not fans of garlic. However, if need be, make half with garlic and half without. That way you get the best of both worlds.

            How do I store these?

I have never had any leftovers, just to warn you. However, if you do, I suggest wrapping tightly with plastic wrap or using baggies that zip and storing these tasty treats in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
