Cheesy Breadsticks

1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
4 oz. Natural & Kosher shredded muenster
olive oil
garlic powder
Natural & Kosher grated parmesan

Place the yeast, sugar and water in a large bowl and let it rest until foamy. Add remaining ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and place in a warm place to rise, about 1 hour.

Roll the dough out into a rectangle, adding flour as needed, to keep it from sticking. Spread the muenster cheese over the bottom half of the dough and fold the top half of the dough over the cheese. Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into sticks and twist carefully. Place the strips on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese and bake at 400 degrees until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

VARIATION: Try mixing some shredded muenster directly into the dough for more cheesy goodness.
SHAPING: If you prefer to keep the cheese inside the dough, roll out small strips of dough into rectangles, fill with shredded cheese and roll into a long rope, pinching to close on all sides. Brush with oil and proceed as above.

Yields: about 12 breadsticks.
