Grissini – Crispy breadsticks

Grissini are italian breadsticks which were traditionally hand shaped. They are perfect for your lunch box, as a snack in between or with some good ham and a white wine as an appetizer. They are also always welcom as a do-it-yourself present.

Taste variations

You can adapt the taste of your grissini by adding some herbs or spices into your dough or by sprinkling some salt or pepper on them before baking. We have already try basil grissini with a tomato mozzarella salad and curry grissini to a pumpkin soup. I’m looking forward to your variations and ideas.

Guten Apetit!
