When you make your own pie crust, bread or pizza dough, there are always a few scraps of dough left over. Instead of tossing them or trying to come up with a new dish to bake, turn them into bread sticks you can use with lots of meals.

Once you’ve finished your actual dish, take all the left over dough scraps and combine them. Roll them out to 3mm thick, and cut them into thin strips. Add any topping you like: herbs, salt, pepper or your favourite dried spices are all great. Bake the sticks in a 220C oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Since they’re fairly thin, keep an eye on them so they don’t get too crispy. You can enjoy these tiny tasty sticks on their own, as a vehicle for jam and other dips, or as an added crunch on top of salads. You’ll end up with a really versatile snack that would otherwise have been wasted.
