Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks

As I sit down to write this post I can already tell you it's going to be short. I started teaching again this week and I am exhausted. On top of the back to school routine setting in I feel horribly sick today, so don't mind my pity party for one, but I am keeping things short. I have been meaning to share these delicious breadsticks with you because they are seriously heavenly. Straight up heaven. When I made them I served them with just a simple pasta and salad, and honestly I should have just done salad because John and I were all about the breadsticks. I ate one, took a bite of a second and then gave it to John, and literally I said "I instantly regret giving you that..." because it was so good I didn't want to share. You must try these. They are so delicious and so easy to make!

2¼ cups baking mix (like Bisquick), plus a little for dusting
⅔ c. milk
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
½ tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp parsley
2 tbsp. olive oil
8 pieces of string cheese

1- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2- Stir together baking mix, Italian seasoning, and salt. Add milk, and stir to combine.
3- Generously dust work surface with baking mix. Turn out dough, and knead about 15 times. Shape into a ball, then roll into a ¼” thick rectangle.
4- Cut dough into 8 smaller rectangles. Place a cheese stick in the center of each piece of dough, and fold the dough around the cheese. Stretch the dough as needed to entirely cover the cheese, and squeeze the entire breadstick, including the ends, to seal all edges.
5- In a small bowl combine the garlic powder, parsley, and oil. Brush the mixture over the breadsticks.
6- Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden.
7- Serve with sauce. (Warning- the cheese will be hot, so allow to cool a bit before biting in).


  1. The back-to-school madness is so exhausting. I don't miss that part of teaching. Breadsticks look delicious though!

  2. These sound great and easy to make. I hope you are able to get rested up this weekend.

  3. What sauce did you use? bottle or homemade?

    1. Either- I use whatever I have on hand at the time!
