Garlic Breadsticks

I love breadsticks! Instead of buying breadsticks from a carryout place, I found an easy recipe to make them at home. They turned out gorgeous with soft bread in the middle and crisp on top and bottom. They are so addictive, full of garlicky goodness. 
Make a batch of these yummy breadsticks to serve alongside your next dinner.
