These Fried Breadsticks are too good; I’m not surprised at all so many of you perked up when I posted them on Instagram last week.
They’re too easy for me not to share ASAP, and you deserve these in your life. I’ve been making them for years now, and there are never any left, no matter how many I make!
I like to use the regular ol’ Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust you find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, for ease. When I can, I’ll stop by one of my favorite local pizza joints and buy a medium pizza-sized round of their dough, which equals about the same amount as the canned dough.
You can feel free to use your favorite, make your own from scratch, do whatever!
I usually keep my Fried Breadsticks easy, but if you’re into scratch-made garlic-flavored fried bread, you’ll love the Garlic Poppyseed Bites in my newest ebook “Who Made the Potato Salad?” My brother-in-law calls them “the clouds baby Jesus slept on before he floated down from heaven” and he’s not wrong.
Switch Up These Fried Breadsticks
- Add grated parmesan to the garlic butter you baste on the Fried Breadsticks for a bit more unf.
- Fried Garlic Knots: twist the logs of dough into knots. Add fresh minced garlic to the garlic butter sauce.
- Fried Garlic Rolls: Don’t unroll the dough when you remove it from the can, just slice it into pieces like cinnamon rolls and fry those, then baste them in the butter. OR, unroll the dough, slather it with the garlic butter, then roll it back up, slice them into pieces and fry those. Baste them again when they’re out of the oil!
They make a great appetizer with marinara sauce, and pair well with pretty much any pasta dish you can think of.
If you make these make sure to come back and rate the recipe. I’d also love to hear your thoughts! Here’s a nice graphic for your Pinterest Boards:
