I have found the most delicious and the easiest recipe for garlic knots ever! When I saw this recipe posted by Georgia from the blog The Comfort of Cooking I knew it was a keeper. Georgia is one of my favorite bloggers. Her recipes are useful and are usually easy to make, and you can always bet they are delicious. I go to her site when I need inspiration.
Now, I’m telling you these knots are great, and boy did they inspire me! They are delicious served as appetizers, with a big bowl of pasta, or with grilled chicken and a Greek salad like the one I had for dinner last night. The best part about this recipe, nearly all of the work has been done for you. You simply need a can of buttermilk biscuits. I used an off brand, but did buy the jumbo size biscuits. I think I paid a total of $1.19 for the can. A small price for such a huge hit!
I adapted Georgia’s recipe ever so slightly to accommodate my tastes.
Finger Licking Garlic Parmesan Knots
1 can of jumbo biscuits
3 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. Italian seasoning
a pinch of dried parsley
1/2 tsp. parmesan cheese
a pinch of salt
Grease a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small dish, add melted butter and seasonings; mix ingredients until blended.
Roll each biscuit into a rope about 6” long and tie each one into a knot. Brush each knot with about half of the butter mixture and bake until light golden brown (about 10 -12 minutes). Remove the baking sheet from the oven and brush each knot with the remaining butter and serve.
If you like flaky rolls loaded with garlic and parmesan flavor, and you like no fuss and inexpensive, then these knots are calling your name.
