When i was surfing pinterest, i found some many recipes for soup sticks and cheese bombs which caught my eyes and i decided to make some. I made a double batch of the dough and made garlic cheese bombs and breadsticks using that.
This recipe is so easy to make and it taste great warm when served with tomato sauce or any sauces. It can be served along side with soups. This is full of garlic and herb flavour and it turns out soft. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

First lets make the dough. Take yeast and sugar in a bowl. Add in ¼ cup of warm milk and mix well. Let it sit for 5 mins till it is activated and foamy.
Now take flour, salt, olive oil in a large bowl. Mix well. Pour the yeast mix and remaining milk and knead it to a soft dough. Add 1 tblspn of oil and knead to a soft dough for 10 mins till it is soft and smooth.
Now cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours till it is doubled in size.
Now lets make the garlic oil. Take all the ingredients for the oil and heat gently till the butter is melted. Remove it from heat and set aside.
Now take the dough. Punch back the air from the dough and knead one more time. Take a small portion from dough, roll it into a log and cut into pieces.
Now take a ball and flatten it lightly, place a cube of cheese in the center and cover it well. Roll it into a smooth ball.
Now take the balls and dip it in the garlic butter and place it in the tray.
Set aside the tray and preheat oven to 200 degree C.
Now put the tray in oven and bake it for 10 to 15 mins untill golden. Remove it and brush with the oil if needed.
