One of the easiest, quickest recipes ever: warm, crisp, cheesy bread sticks and you can even make them spicy and on top of that, as spicy as you wish! The quantities are entirely up to you!

Cheesy Grissini
Crispy bread sticks


  • Packet of grissini (bread sticks) or cheese straws of your choice
  • Olive oil
  • Mature cheese of your choice, finely grated
  • Herb of your choice, finely chopped
  • Red chilli flakes (optional)

Chef's hint: These are perfect for serving with drinks or soup. If you want to add even more oomph and body, wrap each stick in ham shavings or even Parma ham before baking them!


Place the grissini on a baking sheet and brush with a little olive oil. Sprinkle thickly with cheese then sprinkle over the herbs and chilli flakes to taste, if using.

Bake in a hot oven for a few minutes until the cheese has melted.

Allow to cool a little before serving.
