Parmesan Bread Twists

July 5, 2014

1 Parmesan Bread Twists (1)

I love making these bread twists – First,  because they are REALLY good and I always eat way too many!   Second, because they are easy to make and only take 20 minutes to raise.  They are a great compliment to any meal.

Fold the dough in half with the buttered side to the inside.

Lightly roll with a rolling pin, especially on the folded side to flatten it out a little bit.

Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough in half the long way and then in 1″ strips.  (These will look kind of small but when you twist them, they stretch out.)

1 Parmesan Bread Twists (9)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Twist the strips and place on a cookie sheet.  Let them sit for another 10 – 15 minutes to raise.

Bake at 400 degrees for 14 – 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Immediately after baking, brush with more melted butter and sprinkle with more garlic granules and parmesan cheese.
