Dem Dry Bones

These aren't really "dry" - but they make great spooky body parts!
And they have bacon - everything's good with bacon!!!


* 1 box sesame seed breadsticks
* 1 lb. bacon
* grated Parmesan cheese - probably about 1/2 cup.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wrap breadsticks in uncooked bacon. (frugal note - you can stretch the bacon further by cutting it in half lengthwise down each strip. You will be able to wrap more breadsticks but they won't be as tightly covered in the bacon. Up to you.)

Place on a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and bake for 30 minutes. (I like to cover mine with aluminum foil for this -makes clean up easier)

Put the Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish. Roll each stick through the cheese while still hot.

Allow to cool and crisp, then serve.

...there are a lot of variations of this recipe out there in cyber land. Different kinds of breadsticks, some with garlic (keeps those vampires away), and some with different baking temperatures.

But they've all got bacon -so they all must be good, right?

What brand of breadsticks have you tried? Dumb question-- do you start with breadsticks in dough form?

Karen - no need for raw breadsticks -just the box of ones ready to eat will do fine. I have used sesame -but there are loads of different flavors -just pick your favorite.
