So yummy!!

Notes:

  • I used un-cured, all-natural Hormel bacon for mine. Each brand may vary in size, but make sure you get the thin kind.
  • Twist the bacon around each breadstick, but don’t pull it too tight as you go around or the breadsticks will bend as the bacon shrinks up.
  • I used a combination of plain and sesame breadsticks. It is really just personal preference, use your favorite.
  • A 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne powder gives these breadsticks a bit of heat, but it is not overpowering. Adjust as needed to fit your tastes, or leave it out all together if you prefer.
  • All ovens bake differently so cooking times are approximate based on my oven.
