Here is another super easy, totally adaptable, fun food to make. Bone shaped bread sticks.
I was cruising around the net yesterday and found this instructional over at the Rhodes Dough website, here is the link.
This recipe was adapted from Rhodes Dough Bone Chillin' Breadsticks.
You will need:
1 loaf of bread dough, homemade or a frozen loaf, defrosted
OR2 cans of refrigerated bread sticks
garlic salt or powder
Roll the dough into a log.
Cut in about 1 inch on each end of the dough.
Tuck each end under to make the knobby ends of the bones.
Do all of the "bones" and place them onto a greased cookie sheet. Here is where all of the optional goodies come into play. If you would like to have them a little jazzed up, brush with melted butter and sprinkle on one of the toppings that I suggested above, or anything you think would be good with the meal you are serving. Be creative! Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes, or according to package directions on the refrigerated bread sticks.
How cute is this served up with some paste "worms"? My kids devoured these and though it was so neat to dip a "bone" into their "wormy" pasta lunch.
These would be great on a party table with a little marinara or pizza sauce to dip them into.
*Notes* I wanted to add that when you are making the bones, make them all different sizes. Stretch some of them out so when you bake them you get short fat one, long skinny ones and some in between. It just looks fun and makes for a cool presentation.
Mmmm, bones for lunch anyone?
