Mozzarella Filled Breadsticks
- one batch of prepared grill dough*
- mozzarella cheese (string cheese would be great for this, we used shredded)
- melted butter
- assorted dips, if desired (marinara, garlic butter, ranch dressing, etc.)
After grill dough has risen, pinch of a piece of dough about the size of a small golf ball. Stretch and shape with your hands until you form a rough rectangle. Place a small handful of mozzarella cheese (or a piece of string cheese) in a line down the middle of the rectangle. Pinch the long sides together to make a seam and repeat with both ends, making sure all seams are sealed well. Set breadstick on flour dusted plate until all have been prepared. Place breadsticks on preheated grill and allow to cook for several minutes. Brush lightly with melted butter and then flip to cook other side. Brush top side lightly with melted butter and remove to serving plate. Serve as is or with a dip.
The breadsticks were so successful that I'd like to try some other variations in the future. I think pizza filled sticks would be great, as would taco sticks. Got any other ideas? Let me know!
