How do you Reheat Breadsticks?

Preheat oven to 350˚F and wrap cheesy breadsticks in foil creating a slight tent so the foil doesn’t stick to the cheese.  Reheat for 5 minutes until cheese is hot.

Or you can place them on a microwave safe plate and reheat for 1 minute in the microwave until cheese is warm and melted.
