Low Calorie Recipe

You use frozen bread dough to make these delicious Parmesan bread sticks which really speeds up the process.

Parmesan Bread Sticks


1/4 cup egg whites, slightly beaten
1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed
1/4 cup fat free Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder

Recipe Directions

Parmesan Cheese Slice

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside. Pour egg whites into a 9 x 13-inch pan. Sprinkle another 9 x 13-inch pan with Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Divide dough into 16 pieces and shape each piece into a ball.

On lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a rope, 12-inches long. Dip rope in egg whites, then into the Parmesan cheese mixture, coating evenly. Gently twist each rope several times to create a spiraled look, then lay bread sticks on prepared baking sheets, 2-inches apart. Bake for 12 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
