Breadsticks done in a jiffy when you have unexpected guests or unexpected hunger pangs! Delicious and so easy to make!
Breadsticks is one of those recipes of mine which is like my go-to recipe in case of an emergency whether its sudden guests at home or sudden cravings by my son.
I really can’t believe myself that I haven’t posted it yet here. Its actually what I have written in title in a jiffy, all you have to do is cut some bread in sticks. Melt butter, apply butter on them and microwave, that’s it!
There are two versions I do depending on my audience – sweet and savoury. In the sweet version I mix cinnamon and sugar to the butter and in the savoury one I mix herbs (more often than not the left over pizza seasoning) salt and pepper.
The sweet ones are perfect tea snacks or snacks to be parceled in the school snack box. And the savoury ones perfect to be served with cocktails or to a child who doesnt have a sweet tooth.
Honestly, it just can’t get easier. I think there are so many dishes we can make in the microwave. We really don’t use the microwave to the fullest of its potential. I discovered that even tea can be made in the microwave. If you are out of gas and need a cup of tea to calm yourself down, fret not! Try the microwave instead.
Or curries. I love making some bhindi in the microwave. Or the potatoes. Those taste so delicious when you make them in the microwave.
These breadsticks are really loved by my son. Whether it is eating the sweet or the savory ones, he loves both. These are crisp to eat and you can feel the taste of the butter in every bite. Definitely worth a try!

Wow that’s a wonderful one..:)..thanks for sending it to the event..you can actually send this for the party appitizers too if you happen to serve this in a party what do you say?..:)
Bread sticks are perfect mini bites and side dish. I make them often with salad in summer and with soup in winter. How about adding little garlic to the savory one?
You know, I’m going to serve the savoury version of these with the soup I’m making tonight 🙂 I’ve been wracking my brains for a decent side to go with it and these are perfect! And I think I’ll make the sweet ones for Bonbon to have with her cup of Bournvita 🙂 Thanks for sharing, babe!
