Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks RECIPE ____________________________________
1 1/2 cups Milk 1 teaspoon Granulated Sugar 1 3/4 teaspoon Active Dry Yeast 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) Unsalted Butter, at room temperature 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt 3 cups Bread Flour 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder 1 teaspoon Onion Powder 1/4 cup Parsley 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Peppers 1 Egg (to use as an egg wash)
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder 1 teaspoon Onion Powder 1 teaspoon Spanish Paprika
Combine milk, yeast and sugar. Set it aside to dissolve for 5 minutes. Grab your mixer (or a stainless steel bowl) and pour the warm milk, softened butter, salt and half of the flour. Mix for a minute until well combined and then add the rest of the flour along with the crushed red peppers, garlic powder, onion powder and parsley. Turn your mixer to medium speed and knead the dough for 8-10 minutes. Grab a clean stainless steel bowl and spray it with pan spray and place the dough in it. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough double in size (draw a circle of its size in order to help you determine when it doubles in volume which might be about an hour depending on the room’s temperature). Once the dough doubles in size, preheat your oven to 400°F and line up three baking sheets with parchment paper. Flour the surface that you will be working on and cut little round pieces of dough that weigh 2 oz. each and place them on the floured surface. You should have about 15 pieces. To shape the breadsticks, grab one of the pieces of the dough and shape into a ball. Then grab a rolling pin and flatten the dough then add some of the seasoned Mozzarella cheese at the edge of the dough and roll it twice. Afterwards close the dough from the end then add a little more cheese and roll it once more, closing the ends while continuing rolling until reaching the end. Gently roll the dough on a dry surface which will assure it sticking together. Place the breadsticks on the parchment paper. Repeat this method on the rest of the dough. Once you finish, lightly brush them with you egg wash. Bake until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy the seasoned cheesiness of these delicious soft breadsticks.
