|1 loaf||Bridgford Frozen Ready-Dough®, thawed|
|½ cup||Bridgford Sliced Pepperoni, finely diced or|
|½ cup||Bridgford Dry Salami Slices, finely diced|
|½ cup||Cheddar or Jack cheese , finely shredded|
|1 Tbsp||melted butter or margarine|
Lightly grease 2 large sheet pans; set aside. In a small bowl, mix together Bridgford Pepperoni or Bridgford Salami with cheese; set aside. Place thawed loaf of dough on a lightly floured surface (do not roll dough into a ball). Using a rolling pin, roll dough out into a 16″x 4″ rectangle. With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, slice the rectangle into 16, 4-inch long strips. Divide the meat/cheese mixture in half. Place one half on a flat surface, keep the remaining half in the small bowl. Take one strip of dough and press down to flatten. Place ½ tablespoon meat/cheese mixture from bowl down the center of strip. Press edges together and seal seams. Roll breadstick in the cheese/meat mixture that is on the flat surface. Repeat with remaining strips, making sure strips are 2-3 inches apart. Brush with melted butter. Let rise until puffy (30-60 minutes in a warm area). Place a macadamia nut onto the end of each stick to make a “fingernail.” Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
