Garlic Butter Breadsticks

So today, I had decided that I needed to make my own breadsticks. And I was surfing the Internet for some recipes and all I saw were ones that you needed to make your own dough *yawn*. Who has time to wait for the dough to rise and all of that punching the dough and I didn’t want to get involved with that. So then, I was like, “Hey, there’s some crescent roll dough in the fridge that I need to use up.” And it hit me! I decided to make my own breadsticks.
For this recipe you will need...
-1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls
-about 2 tablespoons butter (possibly extra if you want to brush some melted butter on after they’re cooked)
-1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
-1 teaspoon sea salt
-1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
-1 clove garlic, mashed
-about 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Set that aside. Using a separate mat or cutting board, unroll your crescent dough. DON’T separate the triangles. Push the creases and join them together to create one seamless sheet of dough.

Melt your butter in the microwave for about 10 seconds, just so it’s softened enough that you can mix through it. Mix the butter with your oregano leaves. I’m pretty sure it was around a teaspoon, but I just shook the container a few times and that seemed to be enough. Mix your garlic in thoroughly.

Spread your garlic butter mixture across the dough with an offset spatula or a plain old knife will also do. *You may also sprinkle mozzarella cheese on at this time or you can do it in a later step. Next time I make this I will do the mozzarella cheese before I twist the dough strips*

Cut your dough into even strips with a pizza cutter or a knife.

Twist it (like so) into spirals. As you can see I suck at this step.

If you didn’t already sprinkle your cheese please do so now. *If you get cheese on the foil it will burn so if you don't want those crackly, crusties hanging off your breadsticks, please make sure that the cheese is ONLY on the breadsticks :)*

Now shake salt and Italian seasoning all over the breadsticks.

Time for the oven! I baked these babies at 375 degrees for 11-13 minutes or you can just bake them according to the package of your crescent rolls :)

Yum! They smell so freakin’ good when they’re baking- and the flavor is so great when they come out. Brush with melted butter if you’re into all the grease and moistness or just eat them by their lonesome. They are guaranteed to fill you up. My family says the garlic flavor is perfect. Not too much. Not too little. Enjoy!
