I’ve been making this EASY BACON appetizer for years. So simple and fun, that even my husband Peter likes to help make them!
The best part is, they can be made a day or two before you need them. I added cayenne (for heat) and fresh nutmeg to Food Network’s original mix.
You will also need: parchment paper
Preheat oven to 350
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the parmesan, garlic salt, cayenne and nutmeg.
GENTLY wrap each breadstick with a slice of bacon (so breadsticks don’t break), then place wrapped bread sticks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If you break one, just cut bacon to fit and add to sheet. No one will care if the pieces are small.
Can be made a day ahead and even taste great cold! I’ve even chopped up leftovers and used them as salad croutons!
