Can I make Cheesy Breadsticks

You could add some crumbled parmesan to the dry ingredients or on the top, or both! You can really use your imagination with cheese. Since this breadstick recipe only cooks for 15 minutes, the cheese will be bubbly and perfect!
How do these compare with Pizza Hut Breadsticks?

Brush that over the top of the sticks before baking. Remember, this recipe does not call for yeast, so they won’t be as fluffy as a Pizza Hut Breadstick, but they will still taste amazing!
