Parmesan Puffed Pastry Bread Sticks

Light, crispy, melt-in-you-mouth delicious… are just a few words to describe these easy scrumptious breadstick.
Put these tasty delights in a few tall glasses and position them around the table… then watch them disappear!

Parmesan Puffed Pastry Breadsticks
1 package puffed pastry
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
olive oil
1/2 tsp dried Italian herbs
sea salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put puffed pastry on a floured work surface.  Roll out pastry just a little.

Cut pastry into 3/4 inch strips.
Brush both sides of breadsticks with olive oil.
Put grated cheese on a parchment paper or on a large plate. Sprinkle with Italian herbs and mix.
Drag pastry strip through Parmesan cheese on both sides. Twist and place on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.  I use Fleur de Sal. Isn’t the little box adorable.
Bake for 10 minutes. Watch the breadsticks so they don’t burn.
Remove the parchment with the breadsticks on it to a wire cooling rack. It takes only a few minutes for them to cool.
Put a handful of breadsticks in a tall drinking glass and serve!

    I’ll be trying these! Also, I couldn’t help but wondering how you keep your camera clean while taking all these great pictures in the middle of cooking! :o)

    They look delicious! I wish the clubs would carry the puff pastry, it is so expensive in the supermarket.
    Come over and see what I cooked up!

    For Toni…
    I just laughed at your question, good thinking! YOu should see my camera and my laptop… they are a mess! But they work hard for me. I do clean them once in awhile. One time my computer would not type and it was because I had food crumbs stuck in the keyboard.
    Thanks for asking and for the good giggle.

    I have a deeply rooted fear of puff pastry but you have once again made a recipe sound doable. And they look so cute in the tall glasses! I’m going to try these! :-)

    Fantastic post, Yvonne! How would we ever get along without packaged puff pastry. I serve hearty dinner salads often and this is the perfect accompaniment.

    For Karen,
    The wonderful Fleur de Sal Sea Salt was a gift from Michael Lee at Designs By Gollum.

    I bet if you google it, you will find it. This salt has a lovely soft flavor and is not quite as “in you face” as some other salts are. Hope this helps!

    Yvonne did you solve your leaving comments problem. Now I can’t leave comments on most blogs. What did you do to correct it?

    I wrote back to you on my own blog wall, but not sure it you’d get it or not, so i am copy/pasting it to you here, so if you get 2 of the same in your box, you’ll know i’m a ditz, lol…certainly there is a way to click and respond back to someone’s comment directly to them, like f/b, but i dont’ know how to use that feature on blogland! )…..

    Oh thank you sooooo much for saying to move my “follow button”!…i just figured out how to get rid of the “letter verification” thing last night, did not realize it was on, hopefully you were able to comment without having to “verify”….

    Thank you too for “following me” i adore your blog, chock-full of such wonderful ideas and beauty! and can’t wait to see most posts…

    Made these last weekend-absolutely delish. I wrapped leftovers in foil and heated them up a couple days later to go with salad-again, yum! Thanks, Yvonne!

    I pinned this recipe and just wanted to drop by and say that they were lovely!

    My impatience in waiting for the pastry to thaw actually ended up saving me time: as soon as the tri-fold frozen dough was thawed enough to unfold, I broke it into three sections along the seams. I cut each section in half lengthwise and then in half again, making 12 long, skinny pieces of dough, which I then rolled in cheese and herbs before twisting them and placing them on the cookie sheet.

    This way, each one was the same size and the dough didn’t get all floppy! Of course, this means I didn’t roll out the dough as you recommended–but the breadsticks tasted just fine.

    I also made a batch with adobe seasoning and finely shredded cheddar.

    Good thing they are so tasty–the three leftovers were not nearly as good the next day!

    Thanks for the simple, clearly explained recipe.
