They came out so good – we sprinkled them with cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream and added chives and bacon bits. The toppings made their way inbetween the slices and it was really good and so simple. If watching caloried use low fat/fat free sour cream and cheese and skip the bacon bits.

Cheese Twists

Cheese Twists

1   large egg white
1   tablespoon dry mustard
1/3  cup prepared horseradish
All-purpose flour
1   loaf (8 oz.) frozen white or whole­wheat bread dough, thawed
2   cups (1/2 Ib.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

In a bowl, beat egg white to blend well with mustard and horseradish.

On a floured board, roll dough with a floured rolling pin into a 12- by 15-inch rectangle. (Let dough rest 5 minutes if it’s too springy to stay in place.) Spread with 1/3 cup of the egg mixture. Sprinkle half the dough lengthwise with all but 1/2 cup cheese. Fold plain dough over cheese; pinch edges to seal. Gently ex­pel air with rolling pin.

With floured knife, cut dough cross­wise into 16 to 18 equal strips. Brush with remaining egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Lift 1 strip, make 4 twists, and lay on a greased 12- by 15-inch baking sheet; repeat with remaining strips, placing about ‘/2 inch apart. Lightly cover with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm place until puffy, 20 to 25 minutes; remove wrap.

Bake in a 375° oven until deep gold­en, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to rack with a spatula.

Serve hot or cool. Cool on a rack; store airtight up to 2 days, or freeze to store longer. To reheat, place on bak­ing sheet, and bake in a 400° oven for about 5 minutes. Makes 16 to 18.
