These Easy Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks only take minutes to prepare and are filled with gooey melted cheese that stretches for miles!
There is something magical about stretchy cheese isn’t there? Holding these Easy Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks makes me feel like a powerful wizard of dairy, able to entrance rumbling stomachs with one flick of my dough encrusted magic wand of melted cheesy goodness.
Gandalf has nothing on these!
A few weeks ago my wife and I went out for pizza at a restaurant we hadn’t tried before and my eyes quickly spied these Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks were on the menu.
Ingenious, I thought!
OK, perhaps the rest of you have been living in a world with Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks your whole lives and I have just been living under a rock. I don’t know. If you live under a rock, do you know it? Regardless, as soon as I discovered these cheesy sticks of wonder my brain instantly went to work on how I could easily replicate them at home.
That’s my idea of a cheese platter!
These Easy Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks are a mouthwatering cross between an Italian breadstick and the classic appetizer, mozzarella stick. A thin layer of dough encapsulates a stick of string cheese, and then is baked to create a cheese-filled breadstick that can stretch for miles!
Sure, you can make your dough from scratch, but let’s be honest, you’ll get around to doing that about the same time you go to that self-improvement class you’ve been thinking about for the past five years.
Instead, buy pre-made dough and whip up these Easy Cheese-Stuffed Breadsticks in minutes!
Yep, that’s right. Just head to the refrigerated section of your grocery store and grab a tube of bread dough or pizza dough (I’ve used both with success) and you simply unroll it and wrap the string cheese one by one! How easy is that?
I find using a simple pizza cutter to be the easiest way to get clean cuts of dough for each breadstick. Just simply lay the string cheese on the edge of the dough, wrap it, and then cut it out with the pizza cutter. You’ll be done in no time, and have little wasted dough.

- 1, 14 oz roll pre-made bread/pizza dough Pillsbury has these in the refrigerated section of the grocery store
- 6 sticks string cheese
- 2 tbsp butter melted
Preheat over to 450 degrees.
Unroll the dough into a flat sheet.
Place 1 string cheese on the edge of the dough and gently roll the dough to wrap around it and cut it out.
Pinch the dough around the entire seem to completely seal the cheese inside and place on a greased parchment-lined baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining cheese.
Brush each breadstick with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with salt.
Place in oven for 10 minutes.
Remove and serve (cheese will be hot).
Your total yield will vary depending on how thinly you wrap the cheese.
Be careful to completely seal each stick with dough or the cheese will ooze out during baking.
Try not to open the oven while baking or the exterior of the dough won't get done before the cheese starts oozing out. Instead, turn your oven light on and monitor the baking through the window as needed.
