A Word From The Cook

“Simple, artistic, and light, these breadsticks are beautifully delicious”


Prep Time:

30 Minutes


2-3 Sticks per serving


  •  1-2 Boxes of thin breadsticks
  • 1 Basil leaf per breadstick
  • One 2x3 inch piece of thinly sliced Prosciutto per breadstick
  • Seasoned Olive Oil and Basil for Dipping (Optional)

Step 1 – Prepare Ingredients

Rinse and pat dry Basil leaves.

Cut Prosciutto into 2×3 inch pieces.

Step 2 – Wrap Breadsticks

Working one at a time, position basil with wide bottom of leaf near the top of the breadstick.

Work a piece of Prosciutto around the Basil and wrap around the breadstick to secure the Basil to the breadstick.

Step 3 – Present and Serve

Find a vase, bowl, or other decorative container to serve breadsticks in.

Note:  Basil will wilt if kept unrefrigerated for more than an hour or two.  So, prepare as close to serving time as possible.
