  • 1 tablespoon Crisco® Pure Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/8-inch slices (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup drained sun-dried tomatoes in oil, cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (1 oz)

    Unroll breadstick dough into 2 sections. Separate breadsticks, leaving pairs of breadsticks together. Spread about 2 teaspoons onion mixture over each pair of breadsticks. For each pair, fold breadsticks together lengthwise; pinch edges of to seal. Twist stuffed breadsticks 3 times; place 1 inch apart on ungreased nonstick cookie sheets.
