Garlic Knots perfect for any Italian Pasta Meal or as an Appetizer! They are bread dough, tied into knots and brushed with an olive oil and garlic coating. These are addicting I must warn you!
As an appetizer or with dinner, we just can eat these anytime, anywhere. Love the lightness of the dough and the flavors of the oil and seasoning that coats these. Sure to be a favorite hit in your home! Easy to do these. Just buy bread dough or make your own with my recipe.
Make two or three batches They will disappear quickly! One batch of my homemade Pizza Dough < (Click on Pizza dough) published on the link provided our family recipe or (pre- made fresh bread dough purchased from the local grocery or bakery). Frozen bread dough makes a soft crust and not crispy if you prefer Italian style do not use that kind that has milk in the dough. Directions: Roll around the size of a golf ball piece of dough into a long rope, tie in a knot. Let rest around 1/2 hour before baking. The longer they rise the bigger they get and lighter the dough. You will need to work with these to see how you like them. I like them firm. Bake at 400 degree hot oven and baked until browned and cooked for around 35 minutes.
