Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks Recipe Courtesy of

Anything wrapped in bacon is good—but these treats are especially good because they’re also easy to make.

Servings: 2 dozen
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1   24-4 1/2 inch long sesame breadsticks, package
12   slices bacon
2 teaspoon garlic salt or powder
1 cup grated parmesan cheese





Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the parmesan cheese with garlic salt and set aside.  Cut the bacon slices in half so they are approximately 5-inches long.  Wrap each bread stick with one slice of bacon, starting at one end and ending at the other. Place wrapped bread sticks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 15 minutes or until bacon is browned.  Remove from oven and immediately roll bread sticks in cheese mixture.  Let cool and serve at room temperature.

Where can I purchase the little paper containers that Paula uses in the picture for the BBQ Snack mix?

Anyone notice that the picture does not follow the recipe? Recipe states to cover the ENTIRE 4-1/2 inch breadstick with the to bottom. It would make it a bit more difficult to pick up by hand but then the breadstick would keep a stick from over-baking and breaking.

I attempted to go healthy with this recipe and used turkey bacon. What a disaster!

Absolutely delicious! Made them for New Year's Eve open house, and everyone just raved about them!

I make these for our annual Halloween Party every year and people love them. I call them Smokey Bones

Followed the recipe carefully. I used hard sesame seed breadsticks. Every one of them broke while cooking in the oven. What did I do wrong? Maybe wrapped the bacon too tight?

These are delicious, and so simple. I have been making them for years. Also good with any kind of Italian meal. I do them in the microwave. No need to heat up the overn and take so much time. Just pop them in the microwave until the bacon is cooked.

Best recipe ever!! I made it for a Chistmas, and it went so fast! It tastes a lot better with pretzel rods and parmasean cheese. HEAVENLY!!! -Molly Age 11

Paula uses a hard breadstick for this recipe. A pretzel rod would work if you precooked the bacon nearly the entire way, then wrapped them around the pretzel rod and popped in the oven for just 3 minutes. The pretzel rods do not hold up in the oven well with this recipe. Happy Baking!

My friends call these heart attack sticks...They are wonderful.

Awesome! Made for Christmas Eve! We love them!!! When making them use thiner bacon and I used tongs and put them on paper towels for 1 mins to drain a bit of the bacon grease and then straight in the parm. mixture. Wonderful!
