Recipe - Cheesy Garlic Quick Sticks

I love garlic bread... all buttery and garlic-y and cheesy! Crusty on the outside and tender on the inside? 

Yes, please! 

Here is a quick way to make garlic sticks for one or two or a whole group! Be aware of the salt content in the spices you use here otherwise things can get too salty! 

You can make these as an appetizer or with pasta, soup or a side salad. Figure a half roll (4 sticks) for each person. I like using ciabatta bread for this because it's chewy and tender but feel free to use any bread you like. 

Shelly's Cheesy Garlic Quick Sticks

Ciabatta rolls 
Earth Balance 
Nutritional yeast
Garlic seasoning

Olive oil
Dipping seasonings of your choice

Slice each ciabbata roll in half horizontally and spread each half with softened Earth Balance.

Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and garlic seasoning
(I used Weber brand Roasted Garlic & Herb)

Slice each half into 4 'sticks'.

Place them on a small baking sheet and broil until they are crispy and done to your liking.

Arrange on a plate and serve with a small dish with olive oil topped with your choice of seasonings. (I used Trader Joe's South African Smoke Seasoning here). You may want to try flavored olive oils too!
