Grissini are thin Italian breadsticks. I used the rosemary flavored ones, but I don't see why you couldn't use regular, thicker breadsticks, they would just be heavier. I was invited to a cocktail party and asked to bring an hors d'oeuvre, so Bacon wrapped grissini it is.
I experimented with making these a few different ways. The first time I baked them on cookie sheets, but found they burned on the bottom and also the breadstick part broke during the baking process.
The 2nd time I baked them, I perfected the recipe by breaking the grissini in half and wrapping them with only a half slice of Bacon instead of a whole slice. They were much easier to eat in the smaller size. I also baked them on a baking rack, so the Bacon grease could drip onto the cookie sheet.
If you like Bacon, you will love these!!
