It all began with the purchase of some mozzarella bread sticks from the grocery freezer section. They were delicious and I thought to myself, "Surely, I can make these myself at a much lower price!" I decided that my recipe for braided bread,that I have had for years, would be a good choice of dough. My friend, who I have not seen or had contact with in almost as many years gave me this recipe. I think of her every time I use it. So, Jeanne Mealy, if you are out there, I think of you, and thank you for this delicious recipe. Here it is.
First, I made the dough:
Add, using a mixer: 2 pkg. dry yeast, 3 T. sugar, 2 eggs,
3 1/2 c. flour, 1 T. salt. Beat until well blended.
