Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6. Cut the baguettes into three lengthways, then halve each segment, creating 12 breadsticks. Place the sticks on a baking tray.
Mix the garlic and oil in a small bowl, then spread over the breadsticks using a pastry brush. Bake for 15–20 minutes until golden brown. Serve either hot or at room temperature.
Be cautious when handling hot baking sheets and the oven. Use oven mitts to prevent burns.
If using a knife to cut the dough, be mindful of your fingers and work on a stable surface.
Check for any allergies your guests may have, especially to garlic, and consider alternatives if necessary.
If involving children in the cooking process, ensure proper supervision to avoid accidents.
Follow safety guidelines for your specific oven model, and avoid leaving the oven unattended.
