CHEESY GARLIC BREADSTICKS

I have a weakness for cheesy garlic bread. Garlic knots, garlic bread, garlic sticks, just about anything that contains garlic and bread is right up my alley. Honestly on pizza night I prefer cheesy garlic bread over pizza. There’s just something about buttery garlic bread topped with lots of yummy melted cheese. I love it alone or sometimes with warm marinara sauce for dunking.

One thing they absolutely love are these easy Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks. They’re super easy to make with just a handful of ingredients that I can whip up whenever the craving hits.
