This recipe is so easy, it's practically a joke! My family loves these with soups or salads.

2 loaves Rhodes bread dough, defrosted
5-6 Tbs. butter
grated parmesan cheese
McCormick's Garlic Bread Sprinkle
McCormick's Salad Supreme seasoning

Slice each loaf into 10-12 equal slices. Roll each slice into a long, skinny rope. Meanwhile, melt butter in a wide, shallow pan (I seriously use a pie tin placed right on the burner). Sprinkle butter mixture with 1/2 tsp. or more of Garlic Bread Sprinkle. Prep baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick foil (easy clean-up).

From here you have a few choices: for less fattening breadsticks, place ropes on baking sheets and use a pastry brush to lightly apply butter to each rope. For more fattening breadsticks, the way my mom made them, dip each rope in butter mixture so it's thoroughly coated. Sprinkle ropes while butter is wet with either parmesan cheese or Salad Supreme (kids love doing this, though it can get a little messy). Let the breadsticks rise for approximately 1 hour (though sometimes I don't have time for this and it works out fine--the breadsticks are just more dense). Bake for 10 minutes at 375. Serves a crowd!
