Breadsticks with Garlic Butter

This is one of many recipes that I tried for the first time when we had company. Why do I do that to myself? I'm fortunate in that I've never had any major disasters. Anyway, these breadsticks were far from a disaster, instead they've become a mainstay in my menu planning.
After trying a few different methods I've found a great way to keep these in the freezer to pull out for unexpected uses. That, along with keeping a batch of Garlic Butter on hand, means breadsticks are never more than 10 minutes away from the table!
