  • 3-1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann’s Quick Rise Yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons Mazola Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Crown Lily White Corn Syrup
  • 3-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons leaf oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Line a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with enough parchment paper to overhang the sides.
  3. Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Heat water, milk, oil and corn syrup until very warm (120° to 130°F).
  5. Add to flour mixture; mix until well blended, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Gradually add enough remaining flour until dough forms a ball.
  7. Knead on lightly floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Divide dough in half.
  9. Roll one portion to 15 x 10-inch rectangle to fit prepared baking pan.
  10. Place dough on pan, stretching as needed to meet edges.
  11. Sprinkle with 3 cups cheese, leaving a 1-inch border.
  12. Roll out remaining dough to slightly larger rectangle than the first.
  13. Place over the cheese and fold the edges under the bottom layer of dough; pinch to seal.
  14. Cut through the dough with a sharp knife to create 20 breadsticks, but do not separate the breadsticks.
  15. Cover and let rise 20 minutes.
  16. Whisk egg whites with oregano and garlic; brush over dough.
  17. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese.
  18. Bake 15 to 17 minutes until puffed and golden. Cut along seams into breadsticks; serve warm.

TIP: Serve with warm marinara sauce for a special appetizer.
