Difficulty: Easy, Cook Time: 1 hour, Core Ingredient: Garlic, Servings: 20, Calories: 83

Description: Hand knotted dough baked till crusty and golden on top and topped off with a blend of creamy butter, spices, garlic and Parmesan.


For the Dough
1 cup Warm Water
1 package or 1 Tbsp. Active Dry Yeast
2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 – 2 1/2 cups Flour

For the Garlic topping
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. parsley
Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese


Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let rest/proof for about 10 min.  Add the sugar. Combine the flour, garlic powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add the olive oil and yeast mixture to the flour mixture. Beat well until a soft dough ball has formed. Knead for a few minutes until smooth and elastic.  Place dough in a large greased bowl. Cover with a cloth and place in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Take a small pinch of the dough and roll into a rope about 5 inches long and ½ inch thick. Tie the rope into a knot and place on greased baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the dough, and your baking sheet is full of dough knots. Let the dough rest in a warm place until nearly doubled in volume (about 30 minutes)

Preheat oven to 400° F.  Bake for approx. 12-15 min. or until golden. While knots are baking, make garlic topping.

After removing knots from oven, while still warm, either brush with garlic coating, or place knots in a large bowl and toss with garlic coating.
