  • Beat the egg and water in a small bowl
  • Separate the breadsticks and start wrapping them around the tinfoil cone, starting from the tip and working your way up, pinching each end together as you go
  • Keep wrapping the cone until you have about an inch or so of foil left and 3 strips of breadsticks
  • Pinch the top of the remaining breadsticks together and braid. Wrap the braid around the top of the basket and pinch ends together
