Easy Cheesy Bread Wedges
One of our stand-by recipes is this cheesy bread stick recipe. The dough is easy to prepare & bakes up soft. The bread is pressed out onto a pizza pan and cut into strips or pieces once cooked, making them perfect as dipping vessels! These can be a stand alone appetizer on their own, or pair them with a hot cheesy dip (try the BBQ pulled pork dip or pizza dip recipes from the Lazuli Farms blog). Or serve them with a caesar salad for a simple meal.
