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)
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.
