Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks

I love breadsticks, and while we were st the state fair a couple weeks ago I was reminded of these breadsticks stuffed with cheese.  Got me thinking I could probably do the same with some string cheese.  So I started with my normal breadstick recipe and some mozzarella string cheese.

Bread Sticks


1 1/2 C hot water (I use mine between 110 and 120 degrees)
2 T sugar
1 T yeast
1 T salt
2 T butter, softened
4-5 C flour


3 T melted butter
sea salt
garlic powder

Pour water into stand mixer with sugar and yeast, let sit and froth about 10 minutes.

Add salt, butter and 2 C flour.  Mix on low.  Add 1/2 C flour at a time until dough scrapes sides of bowl clean.  Mix 5 minutes on medium.

Roll into log. Spray knife with cooking spray and cut into 12 pieces.

Roll into snakes.  At this point I shaped some of them around a stick of string cheese. I suppose I could have tried to make them a bit prettier, but at least they were yummy!

Top ones have cheese. Bottom ones don't.

Lay on greased cookie sheet.  Place in oven heated to 170 degrees for 15 minutes to rise.

Brush with butter and sprinkle with sea salt.

Meanwhile increase oven heat to 400 degrees.  Bake 12-15 minutes.

Brush with butter and sprinkle with garlic powder.

These are best the day they are made preferably right after they are cooked!
