Challah Sticks (D)
Source: Oprah Magazine Jan 2002
Yield: 18 sticks

1 loaf challah, crust removed
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried garlic
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Cut bread lengthwise into 1/2" thick slices, then lay slices flat and cut into 1/2" wide lengths, about 7" to 8" long.

Lay on a baking sheet lined with foil and brush bread with butter.

Combine all other ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle carefully onto bread, pressing slightly into bread so mixture sticks.

Bake 7-8 minutes, then turn over and toast and additional 4-5 minutes, until sticks are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.

Serve warm or at room temperature with salads, soups or creamy dips.
