Gluten Free Bacon Cheese Bread Sticks Recipe

Gluten Free Bacon and Cheese Breadsticks Recipe

People ask me all the time if I miss gluten. I always tell them “no!” After all, who misses migraine headaches, itchy skin, and swollen joints? Certainly not me!

Of course they are talking about the food – don’t I miss bread, or cakes, or pasta and such? The answer is still “no” simply because I can have great gluten free breads, cakes, pasta, and such.

A while back however I did find something that I missed – breadsticks. I was having Sunday dinner for the family and thought that breadsticks would make the perfect complement to what I was making. So I ran to the store and bought a box of gluten free breadsticks. Looking at the box, they looked perfect. I was happy with the find and didn’t give it another thought until I opened the box just before we sat down to dinner.

Well, the word “breadstick” was very misleading – as was the photo on the box. There was nothing stick-like about them. They were about 2 inches long. Maybe “breadthumbs” would have been a more appropriate title (although from a marketing standpoint I totally get why someone would not want to call their product “breadthumbs”).

I’m not one who likes to “miss things” so the other day – a dark, blustery, made-for-tomato-soup kind of day, I went into the kitchen and made some gluten free breadsticks. It was easy enough, Chebe sells Garlic-Onion Breadstick mix and it couldn’t be easier to prepare and they are indeed quite tasty.

But I wanted to put my own spin on these breadsticks and since it was a dark, blustery, made-for-tomato-soup kind of day, I decided that bacon and cheese would be the perfect way to jazz them up. Yea, I said bacon and cheese. Seriously? How can that be anything but fabulous?
