Prosciutto-Wrapped Breadsticks

Total Time:

Prep:
10 min
Inactive:
15 min
Cook:
20 min

Yield:
2 dozen
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 (11-ounce) container refrigerated breadstick dough (recommended: Pillsbury)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 24 paper-thin slices prosciutto
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a heavy large baking sheet with a silpat (nonstick baking mat) or parchment paper. Tear the dough along the perforations into strips. Using a pizza cutter or a large sharp knife, cut each dough strip in half lengthwise to form thin strips. Working with 1 dough strip at a time, roll each dough strip in the Parmesan cheese and twist. Transfer the dough strips to the prepared baking sheets.

Bake until the breadsticks are golden brown and crisp, about 20 minutes. Cool the breadsticks completely on the baking sheet.

Before serving, wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around each cooled breadstick. Arrange the prosciutto-wrapped breadsticks on a platter.

These were really good. I ADORE prosciutto and these were so simple and delicious! You should eat them right away though because they dont stay good for too long. Make them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love most of Giada's recipes but this was not a good one. I was tentative about using refrigerator dough but did to save time. They did not get cripsy even when very brown on outside. They became very tough after sitting just 30min. Still had over half the tray left over after the party. Very disappointing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe as an appetiser for a party of 20 people. I picked it because it was simple to make. However, I did have a hard time wrapping the proscuitto around the breadsticks. I personally did not think that they were that great and since I had about half of them left over I guess the crowd did not like them that much either. Also, 24 thin slices of proscuitto in my deli costs about $17, that combined with the cost of the other ingredients makes this a pricy appetizer - for me anyway. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for Easter and everyone just loved them. I had to print out 6 copies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I goofed and bought pancetta instead of prosciutto. So I rolled the dough in parm cheese and wrapped it with pancetta. I baked it for the time instructed on the roll. It ended up great! My husband ate a ton of these and he's already asking for more! item not reviewed by moderator and published

For a vegetarian version, substitute a thin slice of Worthington's Wham or Healthy's Veggie Salami; either works perfectly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was so glad to see this recipe again so that I could print it out(not that you need to read directions to make it)and add it to my recipe box to remind me to make this delicious snack, appetizer. I did not cut the bread sticks in half. As Giada says put the prosciutto around the bread sticks just before serving, and buy really really good prosciutto. Everyone loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
In a pinch for time? Buy prepackaged breadsticks, spread with softened unsalted butter, sprinkle with a little grated parmesan cheese, if desired, and wrap with a thin slice of prosciutto. You can make ahead, wrapped well in plastic wrap and refrigerated until serving time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Semi-homemade with packaged dough, this recipe really impressed my Italian parents, aunts, uncles, friends and rest of family! I make it every holiday and serve it with a platter of olives and bocconcini. Have fun letting the kids help too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was extremely easy and very tasty. I made it for a party and some of the ladies liked it--some didn't. If you don't care for prosciutto, then you will not like this. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The breadsticks came out o.k. but once you add the prociutto to it if they are not eaten RIGHT AWAY they get soggy. But regardless the recipe is not appetizing even if eaten RIGHT AWAY. item not reviewed by moderator and published

this and the other recipes on the holiday diner look so good i saw the episode and thought to my self i have tomake this for my family !!!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
it looks pretty good, but nothing to jump up and down over. chese and prosciutto is a nice touch though and the fact that the bread is ready mixed is a big help item not reviewed by moderator and published

We made these as one of the appetizers for our Christmas Party. I made the breadsticks in the morning, added the prosicutto in the afternoon and they were still fine by the evening. They went very quickly. Simple and easy I would definitely do this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The breadsticks are chewy and tasty, for safety's sake you should make sure they are in the oven a bit less than the 20 minute recommended time to get them golden brown, but not burnt. The more Parmesan and other cheeses the better! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy, and enjoyed by all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The breadsticks are a simple twist that everyone is sure to enjoy. We ate them right up! Only bad thing was getting the proscuitto to stay wrapped around the stick. Otherwise, real good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These breadsticks are a must have with the holiday salad. Recently, I served this combination for a Sunday evening meal during a blizzard! Love Giada!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great idea but I did something a little different...I added ground oregano and ground thyme to my parmesean cheese...made the breadstick a little tastier. The breadsticks are bit dry so I used puff pastry the second time and it was much better. Make sure your prosciutto is sliced very thin with more "meat" than fat and it'll work better when you wrap it around the breadstick...can be tricky but tastes really good if you do it right. I made this for Christmas and it was gone quickly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quick and easy. Served it at Christmas and everyone loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The Parmesan breadsticks were good, but the presentation was sloppy and the flavors didn't work together well. It was impossible to keep the proscuitto wrapped tightly around the breadstick and hard to cover most of the stick with one piece. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was very simple and easy to follow but,the breadsticks were too dry for my taste. Maybe I'll try pizza dough next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
great idea---toughest part was to find plain breadsticks-----grteat flavor--need real fresh grated cheese--but more important--find a good Italian prosciutto-- item not reviewed by moderator and published
I recomend just using a pizza crust instead of the breadsticks- you just roll out the entire thing and cut the slices how you like. These are a great start to a meal. My family loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
