Cheese and Rosemary Breadsticks

I wish I could make a living off of food blogging.

I'm just nice would it be to cook and eat all day and then write about it? I would never have to get out of my pajamas.

That sounds good to me! Though being a "professional food blogger" would probably mean that I would need a really expensive legit camera (does an iPhone count?!), and know what I'm doing with it. I would also probably need some formal culinary training...or some English/writing education or something.

Hobby it is!

I am nearing(ish) the end of my 6th and final year of college and therefore my brain has been spinning with the "what-ifs" and trying to visualize where I am going to be upon graduation.

Kinda weird.

Carbs. Carbs fix that right?

That was the only transition I had :) These breadsticks rock. They look all fancy and time consuming but they are sim.ple. You could easily trick people into thinking you slaved over these babies (April fools!).

That man and I made these to go with our romantic Italian Valentines day dinner. We loved them.

My only complaint would be that the best way to reheat them the next day is in the oven. And we all know I'm not patient enough to wait that long.

Cheese and Rosemary Breadsticks


1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/3 cup grated Gruyere
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 (11-ounce) container refrigerated breadstick dough (recommended: Pillsbury)
Finely ground sea salt, optional


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with silicone baking sheets or parchment paper. In a food processor, chop the Parmesan, Gruyere and rosemary together until coarsely chopped. Set the cheese mixture aside. Separate the dough strips. Using a pizza cutter or a large sharp knife, cut each dough strip in half lengthwise to form thin strips. Working with dough strip at a time, coat each strip with the cheese mixture, pressing very gently. Twist each cheese covered dough strip and place onto prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with the salt, if you wish.

Bake until the breadsticks are golden brown, about 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the warm breadsticks to a basket and serve.
