Surprise! Grissini

This month's surprise was the fact that I was going to be making something I had never heard of!  Grissini? Huh?  Ok, call them bread stick twists and I am all over it...
We used this recipe for inspiration, but were encouraged to fill our twists with whatever we wanted.  Which is good, since I am not a big olive fan...  (Though Hubby and Big Girl are.  The twists wouldn't have gone to waste, but I wanted to eat them, too!)  I made garlic grissini.  'Cause I love garlic.  Yum...!  These were not hard to make, and tasted fantastic.  I am pretty sure these will be made again.  And filled in a variety of ways to make them even more fun!
Start with the dough:
 Get your filling ready:
Put the filling on the dough:
Cut strips:
Pull and twist!
And behold!
Check out what our friends made, their grissini might just surprise you!


  1. Awesome! I love that photo of your grissini in the cup, too :) And garlic? YUM!!! Did you save some for me?? :)

  2. Wow! Awesome job! Love the massive amount of garlic you added in here! There wont be any vampires at your house for a while, haha!

  3. Who doesn't love garlic, eh? I could definitely go for a few of these twists!

  4. Your grissini look so nice and thick and chewy... and amazingly garlicky! :)
