Yummy breadsticks

Pepperoni-Cheese Sticks
Betty Crocker Reduced-Fat Bisquick Copyright 2000

2 ¾ cups Reduced Fat Bisquick
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz) I used Cabot 50% Light Jalapeño cheddar
½ cup finely chopped onion
½ cup reduced-fat sour cream
½ cup low-fat buttermilk
1 package (3 ¼ ounces) sliced pepperoni, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped I was lazy and used garlic powder
1 cup grated fat-free Parmesan cheese topping I used regular grated Parmesan in the green can - I had it leftover from another recipe

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 2 cookie sheets. Stir all ingredients except Parmesan topping until dough forms.
2. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls into Parmesan topping. Roll in topping to coat. Roll into 8-inch breadsticks. Place about 1 ½ inches apart on cookie sheets.
3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 20 breadsticks.

I halved this recipe and that was plenty. You don't have to be exact when halving it. I just guestimated and my dough was a little too wet to roll so I just added more Bisquick. My breadsticks are a little bit ugly but that was just laziness on my part. The dough wasn't hard to roll, I was just rushing and trying to do too many things at once, as usual.

These were really good - very flavorful. I was a little hesistant about the chopped onion but that was probably the best part. I served this with a freestyled pasta dish. It was a nice change from garlic bread. I just happened to have everything on hand to make these. I love when that happens.

Gosh, Thanksgiving is one week away. I may have to put my blog on the backburner during the holidays. I won't stop posting but if I miss a day or two, don't worry about me. I think I'll put the Blast From The Past on hold too. That will save me a few minutes each day.

Question of the Day: Are you in the holiday spirit yet?

No, I am NOT in the holiday spirit. And every day I am less and less in the spirit.

I keep jumping in and out. I was really into it a few weeks ago when I was thinking about my cookie party, but then no one jumped at the idea so I canceled it and was bummed.
Now I am working at signing up families to be adopted for the holidays and that is depressing and also make me a little irritated of people trying to take advantage of the system. I am sure that once I get done with that it will be back

So-so. It just comes so quickly, and I am not able to get things done like I wish I could. Plus Christmas brings so many extra projects at church, and I am in charge of so many of them, that it just wears me out and stresses me out. Right now we are in the middle of preparing for the students' Christmas play and parish party. It's going to be great, but a LOT of work. And I just remembered today that I'll need to order a lot more angel wings. And the Christmas play is not even the tip of the iceberg.
