Serve these alongside soups or salads. You can make the entire batch with just one of the toppings, if you prefer. For milder heat, substitute pickled banana peppers for jalapeños, or experiment with your own topping combinations. You can bake the breadsticks the night before, cool to room temperature, and store them in an airtight container; serve at room temperature or reheat in the microwave the next day.

Yield:

24 breadsticks (serving size: 2 breadsticks)
