Crisp Cheese Breadsticks

This recipe is a great way to use up day-old bread. They are great served alongside soup or salad. And guests at my card game parties love them as appetizers.—Elizabeth Tonn, Waukesha, Wisconsin

    2 dozen


  • 1 jar (5 ounces) sharp American cheese spread
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 unsliced loaf (1 pound) day-old white or wheat bread


  • In a small bowl, combine the cheese spread, butter, egg white, Italian seasoning and garlic powder; beat until fluffy and blended.
  • Remove crust from bread. Cut loaf in half widthwise. Cut each half horizontally into thirds; cut each portion lengthwise into fourths. (Strips will measure about 4 in. x 1 in. x 1 in.)
