Cheesy Bread Sticks


Here's a recipe I serve our family when we want a little something special to go with spaghetti or lasagna. Enjoy!

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup warm water
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried chives
8 oz mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In medium bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Measure out water and add to it 2 tablespoons oil. Stir into flour and mix well until dough forms a ball. Let rest 10 minutes. On floured surface roll out to a 12"x15" rectangle. Transfer dough to a greased sheet cake pan. Sprinkle remaining olive oil on surface, spreading to edges. Allow dough to rise for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with garlic powder, chives, and grated cheese. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Cut into finger slices. Makes 15 slices.
