These were a hit at my Italian-themed Christmas dinner. I used asiago cheese instead of the parmesan since its what I had on hand. I made it by hand since I don't have a bread machine. The dough was very stiff and it was a workout to knead. I rolled the dough out with a rolling pin, and then cut into strips with a pizza cutter and then rolled those into snakes just long enough to fit the width of my sheet pan lined with parchment. I topped with olive oil, roasted garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt, pepper, red pepper flake, and more asiago. They were wonderful. They were even better the next day when they dried out a bit more and were actually a bit on the stale side.
