Vegetable Spiral Bread Sticks - Weekend Recipe

These savory wrapped vegetable sticks are perfect for parties.  They make an impressive appetizer. Just in case you are looking for something different for the big game!?

3 medium carrots
12 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. chopped dried rosemary
1/2 tsp. savory or thyme, crumbled

Cut carrots lengthwise into quarters. In a large skillet, bring 2 in. of water to a boil. Add carrots; cook for 3 minutes. Add asparagus; cook 2-3 minutes longer. Drain and rinse with cold water; pat dry.

Cut each piece of breadstick dough in half. Roll each piece into a 7-in. rope. Wrap one rope in a spiral around each vegetable. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; tuck ends of dough under vegetables to secure.

Brush with egg white. Combine cheese and oregano; sprinkle over sticks. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.
