I stared cooking when I was really young, I have always loved it.  By the time I was 12 I was making full meals for my family of 8 a few times a week.  Some of them good some of them not so good.  But the important part was, I kept at it.  I learn from my mistakes and with time I feel I have turned into a rather good cook (well at least I enjoy what I make…wink)

That being said, the other day I was making rolls for dinner (to see the step by step recipe for my rolls click here), Were were having stuffed shells when I thought Bread Sticks would be much better than the same rolls I make all the time.  So I took half the dough and made rolls, and took the other half and tried an experiment.


Roll your dough our into a rectangle, top with bits of butter and grated cheese


I then sprinkled a bit of Garlic seasoning (got it at Costco about 4 years ago, has lasted FOREVER)


Fold the bread  in half


Press down firmly to get the to layers to stick together


Cut into bread Sticks, brush the top with a bit of egg wash sprinkle a little more cheese on top.

Bake on a stone or greased baking sheet.  Bake 400 degrees 10-12 mins

Things I would do different next time:

  • use a different type of dough, pizza dough would have worked out much better (not as fluffy, holds together better)
  • only add cheese to HALF the dough then flip the top over ( less mess, same end product)
  • transfer the dough to the greased baking sheet BEFORE you cut it, (so you don’t have all the cheese fall out)

they looked very gormet. Great idea. maybe you could place your dough on parchment paper so you could transfer them easily and not scratch your pan.


I worked the the schools last year and the cheese yum yum is really easy to make and it is one of my favorite things! My family will devour the entire pan! Make basic white bread dough, seperate into two balls let raise only about 15-20 min. roll out to fit a 15x11 pan or what ever large bar or cookie pan you have (needs to have at least a 1 in lip) greese pan with oil lay the flattened bread dough out on the pan press in corners and run fork over the entire sheet, add a mixtures of cheedar cheese, montery cheese and yellow american cheese (shreeded and diced) make sure to fill corners well, roll out top dough sheet make it bigger than the first sheet lay on top then take your rolling pin and roll it around the edge of the pan on the top. This will cut off excess dough and do a nice seal. Poke with fork again and bake at 325 for 30 min. YUMMMY


@Sue: I roll the Pillsbury dough out and brush(be generous) it with butter mixed with garlic powder then cheese(sometimes I add pepperoni and eat them as pizza sticks) and bake it and then cut it like breadsticks..Mmmm If you have ever eaten a Pokey Stick from Gumbys thats exactly what it tastes like.


These look so good! You mentioned the pizza dough instead....would the pillsbury pizza dough work do you think? I just took a peak at your roll recipe (must have missed it before)...that looks so good and easy. I have always wanted to make something like that but never had a good or easy recipe...thanks!

These sound so good and easy! I am 33 and I still don't know how to cook very well. Anything easy though, I love to try out! Thanks for the tips to! Will have to give it a go!


These look so yummy! We have tried the rolls three times and each time they are so great. We have passed the recipe on to everyone that has tried them. Now to try these, cheese and bread, can't go wrong! Thanks for sharing!
