I haven't played with yeast as often as I'd like..luckily, this bread stick came at the right time when I felt like making bread and coincidently, there are few ingredients need to be used before they pass the expiry date..so it's kind of win-win situation !
The sticks are not crispy type..instead it's more like pizza sticks that are soft and a bit chewy. Surprisingly, it turned out to be a hit for my daughter..:)
The recipe :
200g bread flour
125ml warm milk
1tsp instant yeast
50g bluecheese ( I used gorgonzola )
1/2 scant tsp salt
1/2 lemon zest
1egg + a tbsp milk for glazing
1. Combine all ingredients (except glazing ) into mixing bowl and use a dough kneading head to form a soft dough and with a low speed, keep kneading the dough until smooth and elastic about 20-25 minutes.
2. Let the dough rest for an hour or till double in size then punch & knead dough to release air.
3. Place the dough onto a slightly floured working table and roll it out flat about 11x8" & cut into thin & short sticks. Place sticks on lined baking tray and leave the sticks to rest for about 30-40 mins then brush on egg glaze.
4. Bake in the preheated oven 195-200'C for about 10-12 mins or till brown.
