How to make cheesy breadsticks

  • Slowly pour in the warmed milk and mix using a fork to a stiff dough.
  • Knead the bread dough with your hands to make a nice pliable dough.
  • Cover the mixing bowl with cling film and leave bread dough to prove for 1 hour

  • Leave breadsticks in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
