Share a Spoon - Cheese and Rosemary Breadsticks

Think Tank Momma

Bread week! Yummy! Who doesn't love breads?? I certainly do, and my ever-growing belly can verify that! OK, so yes there IS a baby in there, but she likes the breads too! :)

Now, I have the BEST recipe EVER for Homemade Dinner Rolls. Seriously, they are the BEST!! My mother-in-law has perfected the recipe.
And, no joke here, I had to MARRY my husband to GET this recipe!!! (why yes, I guess I DID have ulterior motives ;))

It's a secret family recipe! VERY secret. And I am getting pretty good at making them!! BUT, if I shared it with you all, my dear father-in-law would probably string me up by my toes! So, you can't have it! But if anyone ever visits me, I'll be sure to make you some! :) The neighbors love when I make them, cause I make an extra pan for them!

The recipe I WILL be sharing is for some very delectable breadsticks. We got this recipe from a book called Everyday Italian. Hubby makes these usually while I make the homemade chicken alfredo. They freaking ROCK!!!! And they are pretty easy to make. Very worth it.

1/3 cup grated Gruyere cheese or Swiss cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon freshly chopped rosemary
1 {11 ounce} container of refrigerated bread-stick dough (like Pillsbury)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Chop the cheeses and rosemary together to mince and blend. Set aside.

Separate dough rectangles. Using sharp knife, cut each dough rectangle in half lengthwise to form 2 thin strips from each rectangle.

Lightly brush oil over the strips.

Coat each strip with the cheese mixture, then roll each strip between your palms and the work surface to form an 8-inch long strip.

Transfer prepared strips to baking sheets and sprinkle with salt.
[The breadsticks can be prepared up to this point 4 hours ahead. Just cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate.]

Bake until breadsticks are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy! :)

Now head on over to the very awesome Think Tank Momma's place to link up your favorite recipes and get some new ones!


  1. Ok...that just wasn't right. You know teasing us with the dinner rolls.

    These sound great! There really is no end to the possibilities with pre-made doughs like this. When you add just a little something to them they don't taste "store bought" at all!

    Thanks for Sharing!

  2. Im not a big rosemary fan, but I bet they would be really yummy with garlic... =)

  3. You could always drop subliminal messages in your know you are talking about something and you say...I wouldn't take that with a teaspon of salt let alone a grain! And so on. ;) For baking directions, that is is so hot right now...i swear it feels like it is 400 degrees!
