These Easy Cheesy Breadsticks Are A Family Favorite!

My kids are obsessed with cheesy bread. And when I say “my kids” I mean *ahem…possibly my kids but mostly me.

I can’t and won’t deny that cheesy carbs are my favorite food group…besides chocolate chip cookies of course. And I am fully ready to celebrate chubby food with an overzealously simple recipe for cheesy breadsticks. And by recipe I mean “assembly”, because it isn’t really a recipe at all…it’s putting a few things together and baking. I’m not above it and you shouldn’t be either.

Only 4 Ingredients!

  • crescent rolls
  • grated cheese
  • seasoned salt
  • melted butter

How To Make These Cheesy Breadsticks…

  1. Simply unroll your crescent rolls. If you’re using the perforated sheets, pinch the seams closed so the cheese doesn’t leak out.
  2. Now pile your grated cheese on half of the dough. You can use a cheddar blend, mozzarella, pepper jack, American…get creative!
  3. Then sprinkle seasoned salt on top of the cheese. You could also use taco seasoning, or any other seasoning blend you prefer!
  4. Now cut halfway through the dough to make 10 sticks. And then spread it with a little melted butter! These makes them easy to pull apart when they’re baked.
  5. Bake it for 15-ish minutes until it’s golden brown and let it cool for about 5 minutes.

When they’re baked you can cut them all the way through so everyone can grab one! 

These are so incredibly easy and will become an easy addition to your weeknight dinners.
