Scary Monster Fingers Cheesy Bread Sticks (gluten-free)

There's a fine balance between a food is scary-looking, yet appealing enough to eat.  Yes, these look straight up middle America and there is nothing wrong with that.  Embrace it.  I just handed out cellophane bags of these scary bread sticks to my neighbors and they all commented how cute they were.  Not too cute to eat!  This bread is a pao de quejo mix (Brazilian tapioca cheese rolls), Chebe bread mix.  Any bread mix can be used.  It's all in the presentation.

Scary Monster Fingers Cheesy Bread Sticks (gluten-free)
  • Eggs, 2 large (+ 1 for egg wash)
  • Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Water or liquid of your choice, 5 tablespoons
  • Garlic salt or powder, 1/2 teaspoon
  • Parsley, 1 teaspoon finely chopped (optional)
  • Chebe, 1 box
  • Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup
  • Almonds, raw, about 10-12
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the 2 eggs, oil, liquid, garlic salt together with a whisk or fork.
  3. Mix in the Chebe, baking powder, and cheese.
  4. Divide the dough into 10-12 portions.  Roll between separated fingers to get the knobby look.  Place on parchment evenly spaced out.  In the wide knobs/knuckles, mark with a knife.  Brush very lightly with egg wash.  Push an almond at the tip for the fingernail.  Brush the almond lightly with the egg wash too to keep intact and for good color.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool on a rack.  Share with your favorite goblins.
