Bacon Wrapped Breadsticks

1 cup grated Parmesan
  teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper

2 teaspoons garlic salt or powder
12 slices bacon
24 long sesame breadsticks (we like to break the breadsticks in half).


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, combine the Parmesan with garlic salt, cayenne and set aside.

Cut the bacon slices in half so they are approximately 5-inches long.

Tightly wrap each bread stick with 1 slice of bacon, starting at one end and ending at the other.

Place wrapped bread sticks on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper

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.

They taste good warm or even chilled!

Chef Monkey's recommend...

Alessi Sesame Breadsticks.
They have lots of sesame seeds for the bacon to "grab" while cooking.

You can also make this in a microwave oven if you are in a hurry! We've tried both ways and they both work fine.
