cheese garlic bread sticks recipe

To make these cheesy breadsticks, I have used 3 types of cheese viz – cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese and vegetarian parmesan cheese. But you can also use just one or two types of cheese. Even pizza cheese can be used. For cheese lovers, there are many Tasty cheese recipes on blog like:

I have made the breadstick dough with whole wheat flour. you can easily use only all purpose flour (maida) or half-half of both the flours. Do use a good quality and good brand of instant yeast. This recipe will have a slightly different method of yeast activation and will take more time if you have used dry active yeast.

These garlic bread sticks not only taste yummy but are filling as well. You can Serve cheese bread sticks with tomato ketchup, chilli sauce, schezwan sauce or any dipping sauce of your choice.
