How to make cheese breadsticks at home with this simple recipe. A basic rustic yeast bread dough is used as a base for this recipe and rolled in cheddar cheese.
Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 15minutes
Rising time: 2hours
Total Time: 25minutes
2tspdry active yeast
2cupsgrated cheddar cheese
Stir to dissolve the yeast in a bowl with the warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes.
Stir the salt and sugar with the flour and dump into a stand mixer bowl.
Using the dough hook, turn on the stand mixer to low speed. Slowly pour in the water and yeast mixture. Continue to let the stand mixer knead the dough for about 5 minutes. The dough should come away from the bowl and not be sticky/tacky to the touch.
Grease a large bowl with oil. Shape the dough into a ball, place in the bowl and flip so all sides are coated in the oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Put the bowl in a warm place with no draft and let rise until doubled in size, about 90 minutes.
Punch the dough down and hand knead it for about 30 seconds. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
Roll one portion into a long breadstick about 12-14 inches in length. Brush the breadstick with water. Roll the bread stick in grated cheese so that a bunch of cheese sticks to the outside of the breadstick. Place the breadstick on a large baking sheet or stone. Do this with the remaining portions of dough. Place the breadsticks side by side on the baking sheet approximately 1 inch apart.
Bake in a 425F oven for 15-18 minutes or until the breadsticks are baked through and the cheese is bubbly and just starting to brown on top. Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes before serving.
