- You can find frozen bread dough near at most grocery stores, it's usually near (frozen) garlic bread and dinner rolls. They often come in a package of 3 loaves, though you only need 1 for this recipe.
- You may have some of the seasoning mixture leftover, don't feel like you have to use it all. A dusting is all they really need.
- For this particular recipe I use the kind of parmesan cheese that comes in a green can (like Kraft). Normally I use fresh parmesan when cooking but for this recipe the "powdered" kind works best.
Italian Bread Sticks
1 loaf frozen bread dough
4 tablespoons Olive oil
2 tablespoons Garlic powder
1 tablespoon Oregano (dried)
2 tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
Let bread dough thaw to room temperature. Lightly coat your hands/fingers with cooking spray and shape dough into 8 cigar sized pieces (you may need to knead the dough a little first to make it more pliable).
On a greased cookie sheet, place the bread sticks a few inches apart. Let them rise in warm place until doubled in size (1-2 hours). In a small bowl combine the garlic powder, oregano and Parmesan cheese. Toss together until mixture is blended.
Lightly brush the top and sides of each bread stick with olive oil and then sprinkle with a dusting of the seasoning mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly before serving.
