A recipe for Parmesan Garlic Straws. Parmesan Garlic Straw recipe. Parmesan Garlic Straws These babies are the perfect little pre dinner appetizers. They are super pretty, especially if you nail the twist pre bake. I prefer to serve these in a glass, or a something like a weck jar to show off their long slender shape. You could totally pair these with a myriad of dipping sauces if you wanted, but they are also just perfect by themselves. They also keep really well, and in my opinion would make a great vehicle to consume things like mashed potatoes. They are really an elegant and delicious addition to any kind of meal. Get your straw on!

    These are so very pretty. I can never get bread to look ‘nice’. It always tastes great but it looks more like ugly bread :(
