STEP ONE

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

STEP TWO

Open breadstick package, unroll dough, and separate.

STEP THREE

On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spell out S-T-A-R W-A-R-S with the dough. It should take one bread stick per letter. Cut the dough when necessary to make the letters.

STEP FOUR

Brush each letter with water and sprinkle coarse salt all over the letters.

STEP FIVE

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

STEP SIX

Arrange the letters on a dark-colored plate or platter (if you have one) and serve with mustard. You can also sprinkle coarse salt on the plate to make the stars.
