Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks do take a little bit of work, but the payoff is worth it. Garlic and herb bread dough stuffed with garlic and herb goat cheese has to be good!
Admittedly, this is a bit of a fussy recipe. The only way to get the cheese into the breadsticks is to roll the dough into a flat rectangle, pipe the cheese onto the dough, then roll the dough up to form the stick shape. I tried a couple of different techniques for getting the filling into the dough, and different ways of rolling the dough. Despite my best efforts some of the filling always leaks out of the breadsticks in the oven. Even so, the breadsticks still have a nice cheesy flavor.
This is a great recipe to make if you’re having guests for dinner. I would serve these Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks either as a snack with before-dinner drinks or put them into the breadbasket for the dinner table.
To work ahead you can assemble the breadsticks, lay them out on parchment lined sheet pans and pop the pans into the freezer. Once the sticks are frozen, transfer to a freezer bag. When you’re ready to bake the breadsticks, lay them out on parchment lined sheet pans and allow them to defrost while the oven preheats. Bake as directed in the recipe.
