It was only 2 posts ago when I mentioned that a good friend’s biggest criticism of ISITK is that there is too much cheese.
I know!! I know!! Too much cheese, but cheese is soooooo good.
Like when it’s all gooey and delicious atop warm, garlic scented dough.
When you want to elevate the humble bread stick you can’t go wrong with Herbed Cheese Sticks. They’re the perfect snack or an easy partner for soup and pasta.
Herbed Cheese Sticks
1 package (6-1/2 ounces) pizza crust mix (I used purchased pizza dough)
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Pizza sauce, to serve
1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
2. Mix pizza dough according to package directions, adding garlic powder to dry mix. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Knead dough 4-5 times or until easy to handle. (If using purchased dough you can skip this step. Just sprinkle the dough with a little of the garlic powder and knead in.)
3. On a greased baking sheet, press dough into an 8-inch square. Brush top with oil then sprinkle with cheeses and Italian seasoning.
4. Bake 6-8 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Cut in half then cut each half crosswise into eight strips. Serve with pizza sauce.
Makes 16 cheese sticks

‘Classics (Die Young)’ is from the new EP released last week by Florida-based Roadkill Ghost Choir. It’s super shimmery Americana that’ll get the week rolling.
