- 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe Original Cheese Bread Mix
- 2 oz shredded Parmesan* plus a little more for sprinkling
- 2 large eggs or aquafaba**
- 4 Tbsp water or milk if using other Chebe varieties
- 2 Tbsp oil
- Egg wash (blend 1 egg w/ 1 Tbsp water)
- Fresh herbs for sprinkling (chives thyme, etc.)
Preheat oven to 375F
In a bowl and using a fork, blend into the Chebe mix the cheese, eggs, water and oil. Mix for a few minutes then continue kneading with your hands until the dough is smooth.
Separate into 15 equal pieces (each piece will weigh about 1 oz).
Three pieces at a time, roll them out into 10” thin strands.
Braid the set of three strands into one braided breadstick (see above photos or video for reference). Be sure to press then ends together so that the end of the breadstick is smooth. Do this with the remaining pieces.
Place the breadsticks on a baking pan. Brush them generously with egg wash.
Sprinkle the breadsticks with shredded Parmesan cheese and herbs. Bake for 20 minutes.
*Hey, dairy free cheese works great with Chēbē!
**For an egg-free version, use 6 Tbsp aquafaba.
