On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me 12 Drummers Drumming... so I made breadstick drumsticks! Garlic Sesame Grissini in fact.
Actually Maddy made them for me because my original plan didn't work out. Sometimes recipe testing is just like that, nothing turns out the way you want, but it helps to have a great team around you who can help you out and come up with something even better in the end. Well I'm so glad she took over because her breadsticks came out much more beautiful and tasty than mine. And we're sharing the recipe with you now!
Garlic Sesame Grissini
Grissini is a long, crunchy breadstick that originated in Italy. They're great for appetizers, snacks, or eating with soups. They're also beautiful and would be a great addition to a charcuterie board or a table spread.
Because Maddy made these that means they're actually vegan friendly (just substitute agave for the honey), which means all your friends and family can happily munch away on these tasty treats. Make sure to make extra because these are sure to go fast!
You want to get these nice and long (at least 16 inches) so having even portions of dough is helpful. I love to use my bench scraper to help me cut and shape dough easily. Plus it has a little ruler on it which is helpful for measuring out portions of dough! And when it comes time to clean up, the scraper easily scrapes up any dough stuck to my counter (just be careful not to scratch your countertop if you don't have stone countertops).
This concludes our 12 Days of Christmas Recipes series, but don't worry we have more fun posts planned for this week. If you're wondering what we made for the other 11 days I'll link them below.
