Italian Garlic Dough Knots

Monday, May 2, 2016
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!  

One batch of my homemade Pizza Dough 
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.

1 lb dough homemade or store bought see link above  ( I would double the recipe as this makes around 20)

Seasoning :

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon each oregano, basil,  granulated garlic powder, salt, black pepper, parsley

Optional for a little heat : 1/4 teaspoon, cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes ( optional for those that like spicer)

1/4 cup romano/parmesan cheese or more to taste

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

While knots are still hot out of the oven:
Mix seasonings in a large bowl (except garlic powder), or use a plastic bag, stir or shake hot dough knots.. to coat evenly, sprinkle with garlic powder and more grating cheese. Add more olive oil if too dry.  Toss knots in the seasoning add less or more to taste.
