  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-in. square. In a small bowl, combine butter, chives and garlic; spread over dough. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
  2. Fold dough in half; seal edges. Cut into sixteen 3/4-in.-wide strips. Twist each strip 2-3 times; pinch ends.
  3. Place 2 in. apart in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 40 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
