So, with only having one meal at home together, I didn't bother with planning a menu or grocery shopping. We just threw together a quick bite to eat on Monday night with stuff we had kicking around. I had originally planned on making Mexican Chicken Stew for this week's Food Network Cooking Chef's Challenge but since I didn't have everything to make it, I decided to just stick with something easy and make Garlic Breadsticks to go with our Monday evening meal.
Garlic Breadsticks - from David Lieberman
Flour, for surface
1 package refrigerated, prepared pizza dough or make your own
4 cloves garlic, pressed
1/3 cup olive oil
Few pinches salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Dust a counter surface with a bit of flour.
Roll pizza dough into a ball and cut ball into quarters.
Roll each quarter into a 1-inch thick snake shape. Cut snakes into 5-inch pieces.
Place on a cookie sheet, well spaced apart.
Whisk together the garlic, oil and salt in a bowl.
Brush the mixture onto the dough.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until slightly risen and golden brown.
These breadsticks were nothing special, but they were tasty, quick and easy - a combination that will make me happy any day. Head over to Sarah's to see what everyone else made for this week's challenge.
