Easy Garlic Twists
My youngest daughter often requests for me to make garlic bread. She normally ends up eating half a loaf and not the rest of her dinner! Kids!
I had a tube of Pillsbury biscuits kicking around and wanted to make them garlicky for her. Instead of cooking them as biscuits, I ended up making these easy garlic breadsticks or as we’re calling them, Garlic Twists. Not surprisingly, Bridget went wild for them and ate more than her fair share. The rest of us were able to snag a couple before they were gone.
All I really did was flatten out the biscuits with the palm of my hand to stretch them out into a rectangle. Then I brushed on my buttery garlic seasoning and cut them in half. I rotated each one until they were in a twisty shape and baked in the oven. Easy peasy!
I think any kind of refrigerated biscuits you can find should work. If you don’t have the Country Biscuits where you live, try using another kind and follow the same method. I like the refrigerated biscuits vs. making my own because they save on time.
Easy Garlic Twists
This Easy Garlic Twists recipe is a crowd favourite with only a few ingredients! Use refrigerated biscuits to save time.
- 3 tbsp butter, melted
- 1/4 Italian cheese blend (I used Parmesan and mozzarella, shredded)
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 package of refrigerated biscuits (I used Pillsbury Country Style biscuits)
- Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
- Add Italian seasoning, garlic and cheese to the melted butter in a bowl and stir to combine.
- Separate out biscuits and then flatten out with your hand to make them a rectangle shape. Add a small spoonful of the butter mixture onto each biscuit and spread with your spoon.
- Cut the biscuits down the middle lengthwise with a knife. With your fingers, twist each a few times. Place on baking sheet. If you have any leftover butter, you an brush it on the twists.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
They are wonderful served warm. The dough is fluffy and the flavour packs a soft garlic punch. Serve with some pasta and you are golden. I recommend dipping them in your tomato sauce!
Bridget has been asking me to make more. I guess that means were are having more pasta soon. I know John would flip out if I made a homemade lasagna!
Do you make your own breadsticks?
