  1. I make breadsticks often.

    I brush on olive oil mix with a little butter, and add parsley, and garlic.

    It’s fantabulous!

  2. I think rosemary is too strong, but that is just me.

    I would brush with olive oil, add garlic salt, basil, thyme, and parsley.

    *I too mix olive oil with a little gently melted butter.

  3. olive oil is icky on bread sticks. It prevents the herbs from sticking properly.

    brush the bread sticks with gently beaten egg whites then sprinkle on the herbs you suggest, dill, seeds like poppy or sesame. Lots of combinations you can use.

    when you take them out of the oven, spritz them with melted clarified butter for softening.

  4. Yes, just fresh rosemary, olive oil, pepper and salt. Also on foccocia bread.

  5. 1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
    1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
    On a lightly floured surface, unfold pastry sheets. Cut each sheet into 13 strips, about 3/4 by 10-inches apiece.
    In a shallow dish, combine cheese, basil, and garlic. Brush pastry sticks with melted butter. Roll pastry in cheese mixture, lightly coating each side. Gently twist pastry sticks, and place on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to

  6. i use a mix of olive oil and butter, butter has better flavoring, but browns too quickly if your cooking it with the seasoning on.

    then i use garlic, basil, thyme, oregano or sometimes pizza spice mixture if i have it. then i grate in Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, its a little bit different then regular Parmesan cheese. no measurements, just eyeballing the spices as i sprinkle them on, and i love a lot of cheese, so way more of that.

    its so good
