Bread Sticks
Submitted by: PrayingBear
2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated dinner roll dough
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
some fresh pepper to taste
Lightly grease one large baking sheet. Divide each roll in half. Roll dough between hands to make a 4 inch long stick. Place sticks on the prepared baking sheet. Brush lightly with egg white or melted butter or margarine. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and sesame seeds. Cover and allow to rise until doubled in size. Bake in a preheated 350F (175C) oven for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes one 4 inch long bread.
Note: Do not overbake as these burn easily on the bottom.

Submitted by: PrayingBear
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon red food coloring
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen strawberries
(thawed and drained)

Preheat oven to 350FF (175C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add oil, beaten eggs, food coloring. Mix well. Drain the strawberries and reserve 1/2 cup of the juice for the filling. Fold in the drained strawberries. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pans. Bake at 350F (175C) for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese with 1/2 cup of the reserved strawberry juice. Slice the loaf twice horizontally to make three layers. Spread the cream cheese mixture between the layers and reassemble the loaf. Wrap loaves in plastic and chill in the refrigerator to set the filling. Slice and serve chilled. Makes one bread.
