Six Cheese Stuffed Garlic Bread Bites

Hey guys, I'm here with my last recipe for my Super Bowl party food week! I'm a little late with it, but I know you'll forgive me :) especially if you make these! Wow, they are SO good. I REALLY suggest using a six blend cheese like I did because it gives the bites an amazing flavor, but you could use just mozzarella or any other cheese you'd like. Everyone is looking for finger foods for these types of events and these are perfect for that. They'd be good for so many more occasions too, like with a nice spaghetti dinner. If you like this type of thing, then you will not be disappointed!

Ingredients:
1 Package Active Dry Yeast
1 Cup Warm Water
1/2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
8 Ounce Package Six Cheese Blend (mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, asiago, fontina and romano), shredded
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Teaspoon Dry Italian Seasoning
3 Tablespoons Butter
Optional - Marinara or Ranch, for serving

Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt, olive oil and 2 1/2 cups flour. Attach dough hook to mixer, and kneed about 1 minute on medium low speed. Continuing on medium speed, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl, about 2 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease the top and bottom. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled. Punch dough down, and take a ping pong sized piece of dough and make an indention for the cheese and fill each with 2 tablespoons of cheese, then take all sides and pinch them together to completely close the cheese in the dough ball. Place pinched side down in a greased pan. Repeat until you have used all the dough. Melt the butter and then add the garlic and Italian seasonings and mix well. Brush butter mixture over top the bites and bake for 15 minutes in a pre-heated 450 degree oven, or until they start to turn golden brown.
