pizza factory breadstick knock-off

i love pizza factory's breadsticks. every time i go there - no matter what i am ordering - i will order a breadstick. so, when i found this site i knew i had to try these. believe it or not, they are very simple and the mr. told me he likes these better than pizza factory's. it's still up for debate in my mind - although i do think they are delicious, just not quite sure if they are pizza factory delicious. try them and let me know what you think.

rhodes rolls (2 per breadstick)
3 TBS melted butter
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dilweed
1/4 tsp parmesan cheese (i use 1/2 tsp - but i really like parmesan cheese)
bamboo skewers

there is a little prep involved with these, so they can't really be done last minute. but just because they need prep, doesn't mean they aren't simple.

let as many rhodes rolls rise as needed (remember, two per breadstick, so if you want 3 breadsticks, you need 6 rhodes rolls).

once they have risen, knead two of them together and roll into a thin rope and wrap them around the skewers.

let them rise again - double in size.

(you can put them on a flat surface, i.e. cookie sheet, but i don't like mine to have a flat bottom, so i hang mine off of a cake pan, so the bread stick is nice and plump on all sides).

once they have doubled in size, preheat oven to 375 and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. while they are cooking, mix the butter, garlic salt, garlic powder, dillweed, and parmesan cheese together in a small bowl. once they are finished baking, take them out and immediately brush each breadstick with glaze on all sides. serve warm.

mmm mmm good.
