Gris-sigh-ni - what to do with Italian breadsticks?

Elster | Jun 21, 2012 03:55 AM

Hello all,

My grandmother keeps going off to Italy and bringing back a huge hamper of Italian foods for us when she returns. This is very kind of her, but she only ever gets the sort of very cheap and boring foods that you don't really salivate about when you think of Italian delicacies! Lots of drrrrryyyy biscuits and pasta shapes. But the main problem is the enormous sacks of grissini (those very thin breadsticks) that she always gives us. We have thousands of packs of grissini just lying about because we don't even like them - they're a bit too bland and boring to really be worth eating, too thin to be a decent dip-scooper, and they don't really fit with many other things apart from as a cheap party snack. So I'm wondering: does anyone have any ideas for how they could be used or cooked with so that they're not going to waste? Perhaps they could be used in place of panko breadcrumbs or something? Be creative about it :)
