Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

  • Wrap 1 bacon strip around each breadstick, leaving about 1 inch uncovered on each end. Place wrapped breadsticks on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over breadsticks.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crisp and browned, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool breadsticks on a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper sprayed with cooking spray.

Cook's Note:

Some people like to combine 1 cup light brown and 1 cup dark brown sugar before sprinkling on the bacon sticks. Four stars because this gets messy and takes some time to wrap the bacon. Can be made a day ahead.

LOVE this recipe! I use it often. I use 1/2 Alessi breadstick for each and split each bacon strip in half. the long way so it fits the smaller stick. ADVICE: Need to plan for a few breadsticks breaking during prep - since they are so thin (but that's OK because that gives me an excuse to snack on the broken bits!) Since the sticks are shorter i usually cook for 45 minutes but it depends on how crispy you want the bacon too. Read More

They were ok. I couldn't find Alessi brand breadsticks so I used the shorter ones I found in my local grocery store. They were fine just nothing wow. I mixed light and dark brown sugars. Read More
