- 1 lb. round loaf sourdough bread, unsliced
- 1/2 C. butter
- 2 Tbs. fresh basil, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1/2 C. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Slice bread into 1-1/2 in. slices, cutting to but not through bottom of loaf. Slice bread again into 1-1/2 in. slices, cutting to but not through bottom of loaf, forming breadsticks. (The loaf should look like the popular onion flower appetizer) Place on sheet of heavy-duty foil. Melt butter, add basil and garlic. Drizzle the butter mixture between breadsticks and over top of loaf. Sprinkle with cheese. Wrap securely with double-fold seal. Place bread on grill 4-6 in. from medium coals. Heat 15-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is hot. To serve, pull apart breadsticks.
Makes 24 breadsticks.
