Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks

If you have tried the French Bread or Pizza Buns with the same recipe, today's bread sticks should come by quite easily, as it's the same recipe recycled once again. It's the bread recipe with endless options and so easy to mix.

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 4 - 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons instant yeast
  • 3 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella or mix )
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 clove garlic crushed

  1. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Put first four ingredients in mixing bowl or Kitchen Aid mixing bowl. Stir in 2 cups flour and yeast.
  3. Mix until well combined and then add the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time, until dough can easily be shaped into a ball with all the flour well mixed in. No need to rise.
  4. Divide in half. Roll first half out on floured surface, to approx size of cookie sheet. Roll up on to rolling pin and unroll unto cookie sheet. Stretch into shape where needed. Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Roll out second half, a bit larger. Roll onto pin and unroll on top of cheese. Fold under the bottom layer, along edges. Cut through the dough with a pizza cutter to create 20 - 24 pieces. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise 20 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, Parmesan, oregano and garlic. Brush evenly over dough.
  8. Bake for about 15 minutes, until bread sticks are light golden in color. If a large bubble pops up while baking, simply break with a knife to keep the sticks even.
  9. Cut along the seams of the bread sticks and serve warm with soup. Can also be used for kids' lunch boxes.


    1. Oh dear. My family is going to LOVE this one. I might even have to try making some adjustments in the ingredients and make them into their favorite breakfast sausage roll. They love their soft bread and cheese. These don't look so complicated. Wonderful!

    2. These look amazing!!! I love bread!!!

    3. Is it strange that after looking at the picture I want this for breakfast ? ? ? ? LOL! Have a very blessed day . . . and I just might have to give these a whirl :0!!!

    4. Thank you MGCC for all your wonderful recipes, i've tried lot's of them already

    5. Great instructions and oh they look so yummy!!!!

    6. This looks great, gotta love that French bread versatile! I wonder if you could take this same concept and instead of cheese, sprinkle cinnamon roll filling between the layers of dough? And when it's done, drizzle it with icing?

    7. wow, who knew baking bread was so easy! def. going to try this!

    10. Tonight I had some fresh buns on the counter and the kids said, "This is all we need to eat at the wedding." I already said, that I will be using your recipe and making many of these savory snacks to freeze and pull out when company arrives. This looks fantastic.

    11. These look so wonderful; wish my printer was fixed.
      Your cookbook came and thank you, Judy, for sending it to me. Thank you all for signing it. I've sent a proper handwritten thank you note but wanted you to know the book did arrive and is already in use.
      God's blessings on you, yours, and the work of all your hands.

    14. I just made them, and they Are Fantastic!
      How do you store them? May you freeze and reheat?
      Many thanks again!

    15. Love your recipes and your book! Any plans for a new cookbook??

    16. Delicious. We had them last night and again today.

    17. My teenage son and I made these yesterday ... they were amazing, and are almost all gone already!

    18. About the question on storing them ... yes, they easily freeze and re-heat.

    19. We loved these! Definitely the best breadsticks I've ever made! And really easy too.

    20. My Mom made these and we enjoyed them with our spaghetti and meatballs on Sunday at a family lunch after Church! WOW! my kids each ate like 5 of them.

      Needless to say - these are going into my arsenal and getting pulled out frequently!

    21. These are so tasty, and such an easy recipe to make I have 3 boys and they can't get enough of them thank you for sharing.

    22. Exactly what i was looking for. Going to try them right now.

    23. These breadsticks are delicious :) I have yet to find another that lives up to the rave review this one gets at my house! I also like to use this recipe to make cinnamon buns. I increase the sugar to 1/3 cup and decrease the salt to 1 tsp. They always turn out just perfect! Thanks so much for this amazing recipe.

    24. Incredible, gooey, soft, scrumptious. I will make these again and again.

    25. Thank you for making your recipe straight and to the point. So many bloggers ramble on and on--and include 450 pictures before they get to the actual recipe! Yours is clear, simple, and easy to read. It's MUCH appreciated! :D

      PS--this is my first time on your page and I'll definitely be back!
