I've blogged about my opinions of convenience foods before, so of course you know, I'd have to put my own twist on this one. I looked briefly for "pop'n'fresh" breadstick dough in the store, but couldn't find any here locally. So I made my own dough with the following ingredients (my breadmaking process is here)
- 3/4 cup very warm water
- 1 TBSP active dry yeast
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 TBSP sugar
- 2 or 3 cups all purpose or unbleached flour
- 1 TBSP olive oil
This recipe made about 14 cheesy bits.
After your dough is mixed and has risen once, roll into snake-like strips and wrap around each half slice of cheese
Serve with hot marinara sauce for dipping.
We LOVED this. I made it for lunch on a Saturday afternoon, and the 14 little cheese-filled bread sticks was just barely enough for the three of us. When I make it again, I'll make a few more (using a full cup of water for the dough) or serve it as an appetizer or with a dinner salad.
