Easy Garlic Cheese Bread Sticks Recipe

Easy Garlic Bread Sticks Recipe
Garlic Bread Sticks was on my todo list since I tasted it at few restaurants.I love anything garlicky so does my family :) Once when we were shopping late at Brookfields and returning back home, we were very hungry so picked a bread like thing named as garlic bread from Spar, on our way back home we munched on it just to fill our tummies till we reached our nest.

The bread had a beautiful garlicky crust on top and I so loved it.But only the crust was good and that too the crust spread over a small patch area in the middle alone,the bread was so thick it had no flavours at all so none other than me liked it.So I made up my mind to recreate the same with the pizza base, yesterday I tried it and it was a instant hit at home.

Even amma who is not fond of bread bases loved it.When I said to hubby that I just tried to recreate what we tasted there, he gave a weird look and said 'Don't even compare this with that'....what else do I need?! He just loved it so much and was all praises for the bread.I noticed that the bread stays soft even after hours of baking, but tastes heavenly when had warm.

My Notes:

  • If you like spice in your bread sprinkle chilli flakes.
  • If you want goeey cheese then add cheese only at the final stage may be just 5mins before the ending time of baking.
  • You can skip cheese too but I recommend adding it as it gives a nice salt crust to the bread.
  • The kneaded dough should be sticky when you leave it for rising.May be while rolling you can sprinkle little flour if it sticks.If the kneaded dough is stiff, then your bread will be hard.It should not be like chapathi dough, you should see wrinkles and the dough should stick.
  • I was in a hurry that I sliced it soon after it got baked so the pieces were not that neat.Give cooling time, then slice it.
  • Don't over bake just bake till the top turns golden, else the inside bread will become hard.
