Everyday Mom's Meals: Not By Bread Alone

Not By Bread Alone

We are big bread eaters in this house. And when I say bread I am talking about bread, rolls, biscuits, bagels, muffins, toast, etc. We are the people that go to the restaurant, sit down and by the time our meals come are half way full b/c we've eaten so much bread/rolls. When I was growing up, most evenings there was bread and butter offered w/ the meal, especially if Dad had anything to say about it. And I have to admit that tradition has continued on Tulip Tree Rd. We think of it as extra flatware: Knife, fork, spoon and bread :) The other day I was on my cousin's blog Recipe Roundup, and she had made bread sticks for her family. Well, a lot of times her and I are on the same wave length b/c I was meal planning trying to decide what to have w/ a salad supper. The minute I saw the ones she made I knew not only did I want to make some bread sticks, but I knew exactly the kind I wanted. Pizza Hut's. I think "the Hut" has some of the bread sticks around and was super excited when I found the copycat recipe at Food.com. They are actually easier to make than I ever thought they would be (I'm sure Pizza Hut doesn't want me telling you this) and are perfect w/ my Olive Garden Salad. Wow, I guess in one simple meal, we made the rounds at some great Italian restaurants. Carb lovers anonymous here we come :)

Pizza Hut Bread Sticks

1 10 oz. can refrigerated pizza dough ( I used Pilsbury)
1 TBS Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. oregano
1/4 c. olive oil

Preheat oven to 450. Unroll dough onto cutting board. Cut into 16 even strips. Place each on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes until golden brown. While baking, mix dry ingredients. Remove bread sticks, brush w/ oil, and quickly sprinkle w/ dry mix.

*NOTE* I baked mine the entire 8 minutes and they were a little "crispier" than Pizza Hut's. They still had great flavor, but next time I will take them out after 6.

Reading your story brings a smile to my face. My paternal grandparents served white bread every night with dinner. Fond memories!! We are the same. We love restaurants that serve any kind of bread before the meal and YES, we always take our dinner home because we eat too much bread before the meal comes. Lovely story, great recipe.

My husband loves Pizza Hut, and my favorite part of going there is the bread sticks. I think I'll try this, but using butter instead of olive oil. Thanks for the great recipe, and I'm pinning this!
