These finger breadsticks are just plain fun to make and enjoy. They are a tasty treat no matter if you are making a batch for Halloween, or just because. Though, if you are making a batch for the latter, maybe leave the gory “almond” nails off?

Even though these take a bit of time to make because of the proofing, the extra time is so well worth it. You can serve these breadsticks in a tasty adult red dip. Or, leave out the red wine and make this dip kid friendly!


Depending on where in this big ‘ol world you are, the customs associated with drinking wine have always fascinated me.

For example, in Japan, it’s not uncommon to have wine “on the rocks”. Seeing I’ve had vanilla ice cream and rosé, I guess I need to try adding ice cubes to my Cabernet next time.

And, did you know that in Ukraine, whoever steals the bride’s shoe at a wedding holds the power to request that other guests drink from a said shoe? Of course, I have gathered that a wine glass is taped to the shoe so people actually don’t drink from the bride’s shoe.

And, then there’s the wine fight of Spain, where on the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, people pelt each other with wine and have buckets of wine thrown on each other as well as sprayed by wine from trucks! Talk about a fun wine party – eh?!

Speaking of fun and wine, have y’all seen the new Living Wine Augmented Reality Labels on The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend and The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon bottles?

If you haven’t, the next time you find yourself at Kroger, Ralph’s, or Fred Meyer, look for The Walking Dead wine bottles.

Scanning the Label on the Walking Dead Wine Bottles for a fun experience

Why should you bring home The Walking Dead wine bottles?

When you come across them, make sure you download the Living Wine Labels Augmented Reality App on your smartphone. The Living Wine Labels App is free and available on the Google Play Store and Apple Store.

Then, scan the labels of The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend and The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon and join Rick Grimes of The Walking Dead on a dangerous supply run, or dodge the grasping hands of a zombie.

As the two bottles interact with each other, you can use both bottles to unlock the ultimate battle for survival: a showdown worthy of the apocalypse!

An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions may have swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled; there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, and no cable TV. Luckily, there is wine! And, that’s why you should look for The Walking Dead wine bottles!

If you are having a wine gathering with friends who happen to be fans of the Walking Dead Comics, then: The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend, The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon and Living Wine Labels Augmented Reality App can provide hours of exciting entertainment!

But…

That’s not all!

How to Make Walking Dead Finger Breadsticks

The Living Wine Labels App is an authentic way to learn the stories behind your wine. And wine-time stories are the best. When friends and I gather together to share a bottle such as The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend or The Walking Dead Cabernet Sauvignon, we like to exchange stories, talk about new wine customs we have heard of, and eat foods like these Cheesy Walking Dead Finger Breadsticks served with Roasted Red Pepper Red Wine Dip.

These chunky cheesy Finger Breadsticks make for some fun conversations at Halloween or any other party/get together, especially when they are served with this roasted red pepper and red wine dip – yes, there's red wine in that dip!

Ingredients

For the Whole Wheat Breadsticks:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Active Yeast
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup cheddar
  • 1 egg for egg wash

For the Roasted Red Pepper Red Wine Dip:

  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • cup The Walking Dead Blood Red Wine Blend
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp chili powder optional

Instructions

For the Whole Wheat Breadsticks:

  • Add the water, sugar and yeast to a bowl and mix well – set aside till mixture is frothy (about 5 minutes).
  • Then, add flour and salt together into a bowl and mix, add the yeast/water mixture and cheddar and knead till dough isn’t sticky.
  • Oil a bowl and set dough in it. Cover with a warm moist towel and set aside for 1 hour.
  • Dough will be double in size. At this point divide dough into 4 balls. Roll each ball out into a tube. Divide tube into four “fingers”. Shape into Walking Dead-type fingers. Brush with egg wash. Add a slivered almond for the nail.
  • Bake breadsticks in a oven that’s been preheated to 425 degrees F for approx. 15 minutes.

For the Roasted Red Pepper Red Wine Dip:

  • While dough is sitting covered, wash and roast the red peppers by preheating oven to 400 degrees and setting the red peppers to bake in it for 20 minutes. Then, flip peppers over and bake another 20 minutes. When done, cover with foil and set aside till cool.
  • While peppers are cooling, saute onion and garlic for about 15 minutes, stirring to keep them from burning.
  • Add the wine into another pan, turn stove onto medium high heat and let wine reduce down for about 8-10 minutes. The ⅓ cup of wine will reduce down to about 1-2 tbsps.
  • When peppers are cool, the stem and skin will separate from them easily. Add the flesh of the 3 bell peppers to a food processor or a bowl where you can easily use your immersion blender. Also add in the onions, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, parsley, red wine reduction and chili powder and pulse till ingredients are roughly incorporated. Serve with the whole wheat breadsticks.

  1. […] Usually I’m burning the midnight oil photographing food for this blog of mine. But that wasn’t the case with this Pumpkin Spice Cake. You see, I whipped this snack cake up in the early morning hours for a photo shoot at my current day job. I also baked a batch of these Chocolate Chip Cookies (sans the orange), a breakfast casserole with croissants and berries, and these Finger Bread sticks.  […]

    Here is another wine drinking thing for ya… The VBK Vörös Bor és Kola, a very popular way to consume red wine in Hungary, red wine and coke yup it is a thing and an insanely popular thing, drunk by the half litre and leads to the most exquisite hangover when consumed at a music festival 😮

    Anyway I digress, loving the sound of that dip, I reckon I could eat that with a spoon 😉

  8. Loved learning all these crazy wine traditions Shashi!!! Never heard of any of them, though I have seen folks drop ice cubes in their wine, and WONDERED!!!! Love the accompanying finger breadsticks, what could be better with the Walking Dead cabernet sauvignon? Big score. Thanks for sharing this great post, I will try this wine! xoxo

  9. Wow, those are some pretty awesome wine traditions there, Shashi! How have I not heard about that party in Spain? And now I need to figure out how to get invited to a wedding in Ukraine, too! 🙂 So these Walking Dead wine bottles are awesome. We haven’t gotten into the show (yet), but I love the augmented reality angle here. How fun! And then serving that wine with these finger breadsticks? That’s getting into the spirit of the show! Plus, that dip sounds delicious. Maybe we’ll just have to binge watch some walking dead while we eat breadsticks and drink wine! 🙂

  10. I have two friends who would love this – one would love the wine, and the other those fingers!

    Oh my Gosh Shashi, those breadsticks are looking so scary. To be very honest, I won’t be able to eat it because of its scary looks. I am a little weak at heart and get terrified at such scary things. I am sure it is very tasty so I will probably give it another shape!!! Hahaha
    Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
