Reviews for Herbed Cheese Sticks
"In my high school cafeteria they called this "Double Cheese Surprise" and it was EVERYONE'S favorite. This recipe reminds me of it so much and is just as good as it ever was. Perfect for an appetizer before the big game, or an easy dinner for the kids. quick to make, but always a hit. Usually serve with marinara sauce and ranch dipping sauce."
"We made this as one of the selections for our recent appetizer night. Really loved them and will be making them again."
"Amazing! My husband, who is not a big fan of any breadsticks, loved this recipe. We will definitely be making this again. I make my own pizza crust which yeilds 2 pizzas. Instead of making the second pizza, I added the garlic, a small amount of spaghetti seasoning and parmesan to the dough. I worked in the spices then rolled into the pan and topped with cheeses and spice. It worked great, though I did bake it a few minutes longer."
"this is cool im going home and trying it"
"Really good! I also used the refrigerated pizza dough instead of a pizza mix. Was really cheesy and tasted great with the Pizza soup recipe from TOH."
"flavor was lacking. try recipe for Italian Cheese bread instead."
"My grandies are all teens and are always hungry when they come to my house. This is one of the easiest snacks to make on a moments notice. I usually have the ingredients on hand. I made it extra easy by using the refrigerated pizza dough instead of the mix."
"So easy and tasty. Kids really liked it!"
