Cheese Herb Breadsticks

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 TBSP yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp Italian seasoning
4 cloves minced garlic
4 1/2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Parmesan cheese
olive oil

Combine warm water and yeast and set aside to proof.  Mix salt, Italian seasoning, garlic, and 1 1/2 cups flour together, then stir in water and yeast.  Add eggs, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, and remaining 3 cups of flour and mix well until it has formed a stiff batter.  Cover and let rest for 20 minutes.

Stir down batter and spread on a greased 10x15 inch jelly roll pan.  Brush on olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size (about 20 minutes).  Bake at 375˚ for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.  Cut into thin slices and serve.

*We dip ours in spaghetti sauce :)
