Who doesn't love cheese sticks? These were good, easy, and just the right addition to a big bowl of pasta. I found this recipe over at My Recipe Box.
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tso salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup prepared Italian salad dressing
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
dash black pepper
1 to 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a mixing blow combine the flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Combine the water and oil in a separate bowl then add to the flour mixture. Mix and add flour as needed to form a soft ball in the mixing bowl. Knead the dough for several minutes on a flat surface until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl combine salad dressing, sugar, salt, garlic powder, oregano, thyme and black pepper.
Once the dough is ready, punch it down. Place on a greased pan and pat down until you reach the desired shape. Brush the dressing mixture over the bread then top with cheeses. Bake at 450 for 11 to 13 minutes. Slice and serve warm.
