Stuffed Divine Bread sticks
Recipe Source: A Cook's Quest (Bread stick recipe Mel)
1 batch of Divine Bread stick Dough
1/2 stick butter
Ranch Dressing Mix (I use my homemade variety) or your favorite herbs/seasonings
Cheeses of your choice
After allowing the dough to rest, roll out into a rectangle approximately 1/4 inch thick.
Drizzle dough with melted butter and spread with a pastry brush evenly.
Top 1/2 of the dough with a sprinkling of ranch mix, and your choice of cheeses.
Fold the plain buttered half over the seasoned half and gently press down to eliminate large air pockets between the layers.
I have found that pizza cutter works best to slice the dough into bread sticks.
Twist each piece of dough. Place on a cookie sheet and brush with more melted butter. This is a great job if you have little helpers like I often do!
**This recipe makes double what I typically need for my family. Instead of raising the second time, I place the cookie sheet in the freezer and allow the sticks to freeze solid. Then place in a plastic bag. When you are ready for breadsticks later, remove the breadsticks from the bag, place on a cookie sheet and allow to unthaw and raise (approximately 1hour.) Top with butter and bake as normal.
Total Cost $1.54 much less than an order from our local pizza place!
Bread stick Dough $.35
Ranch Mix $.19 (I used about 2 T)
