  • 12 slices bacon cut in half
  • 24 breadsticks rosemary, Alessi brand
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 C parmesan cheese grated


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Combine the Parmesan and garlic salt and spread on a plate. Set aside.
  • Bacon should be cold to make it easier to work with. Take out 3 slices of bacon and put the rest back in the refrigerator. Slice each strip in half, lengthwise.
  • Wrap a strip of bacon around each breadstick by laying flat and rolling from one end to the other. Do not hold up breadstick and try to wrap as they will snap in two. (Trust me!) 
  • Continue rolling in small batches until all are rolled. Place each breadstick on cookie sheet once rolled.
  • Bake in 400° oven for about 12 minutes or until bacon is crisp. The breadsticks soften in the oven but crisp back up once cool.
  • As soon as breadsticks come out of the oven, start rolling in parmesan cheese. Of course, they will be hot, so be careful. Using a fork to roll them around is helpful.
  • Serve!
