January 16, 2014

Looking for tasty appetizer recipes for your game day party? You'll definitely get cheers from your crowd if you serve these yummy Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks from My Last Bite. She adds cayenne pepper for a kick of spice and says she sometimes uses cheese-flavored breadsticks "for that extra punch" of flavor. Her easy recipe can even be made a day ahead.

Easy Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks
Submitted to Foodista by My Last Bite

1 cup grated parmesan
2 teaspoons garlic salt or powder
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg
24 slices bacon
24 long breadsticks
You will also need: parchment paper

Preheat oven to 350

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the parmesan, garlic salt, cayenne and nutmeg.

GENTLY wrap each breadstick with a slice of bacon (so breadsticks don’t break), then place wrapped bread sticks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If you break one, just cut bacon to fit and add to sheet. No one will care if the pieces are small.

Bake for 15 minutes or until bacon is cooked to your liking.

Next, roll the breadsticks in cheese & spices. Do this while bacon and breadsticks are still warm, then set aside and let cool. (Peter loves this part!)

Can be made a day ahead and even taste great cold (hey, it’s bacon)!
