Cheesy Herb Alphabet Breadsticks

Kids will love making Dad these cheesy breadsticks for Father's Day. This easy recipe for kids is perfect for little ones to show off their skills as they spell out D-A-D using bread dough. The best part of this gift is that they get to help Dad eat it!

What You Need

1 package - 8 sticks - refrigerated garlic breadstick dough
(or plain breadsticks if garlic is not available)
1 egg
2 tsp water
1/4 C. shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. dried Italian seasonings
1 tsp. garlic power (if using plain breadsticks)

What You Do

Preheat oven as directed on breadstick package.

Tear dough into 8 pieces (already precut). Unroll one piece at a time and then fold in half from tip to tip. Gently roll the dough sticks on a lightly floured table to remove the square edges. Lay the dough directly onto the baking pan as you are forming the letters. Form the letter "D" by using 2 breadsticks for each one (4 total) & the letter "A" by using 2 1/2 breadsticks. With the leftover dough you can make "#1" or an "!" to go along with DAD.

Make an egg wash by beating together 1 egg + 2 tsp. water in a small cup. Brush the egg wash over each letter. This will be the "glue" to hold the seasoning onto the breadsticks.

In a small bowl, mix together Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic (if needed). Sprinkle on top of each letter.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes on baking sheet. Serve warm with a side of spaghetti sauce.
