We love garlic knots, and the last time we ordered them from our favorite pizza place they were just awful! They were a hard tiny ball of knotted dough...drenched in garlicky grease... and the dough wasn't even cooked all the way through...yuck! Let me tell you I am not a doughy person. I have issues when my stromboli isn't cooked all the way and you get a doughy segment...so these went in the trash. They did smell good though with all the garlic!
So I decided to make my own...now you can make them using premade pizza dough from the market or a pizza place, but I didn't have any on hand. I searched for an easy recipe...one you can make in the bread machine and I found it! Yum!
I found the dough recipe on Pam's For the Love of Cooking blog, she used her mom' dinner roll recipe, and they turned out so big and fluffy. I will be using this recipe for dinner rolls.
Ingredients: recipe - Pam's Mom"s Dinner Rolls
1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter (softened)
1 egg (held under warm water)
3 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast
Add ingredients to your bread machine in order listed. Set to dough cycle, when dough is finished flatten out on a floured surface into a rectangle shape. With a pizza cutter cut into strips and then in half lenghtwise. Keep them well floured so the won't stick. Take each strip and tie into a knot. Place onto silpat sprayed with a little oil or it worked fine on my stoneware baking sheet.
Bake 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
For the topping:
1/2 cup melted butter
2 cloves minced garlic (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon chervil
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Place all ingredients, except the parmesan in a microwave safe bowl and cook until butter is melted. You can use, fresh herbs like basil or Italian seasoning or any herbs that you like.
I brushed a little butter on without the garlic (otherwise it would tend to burn) before baking, but you can just bake them first without.
Once they come out ove the oven brush on the butter mixture... they turned out rather large so I did have to use more butter. Then sprinkle on the parmesan cheese. It made around 20 knots, good size knots.
They were so good, and smelled so good too. I couldn't believe how well they turned out, nice and soft inside...and so easy when made in your bread machine. I think easier than going to the store to pick up some pizza dough, and well worth it.
I hope you will give it a try. I now am ready to bring the rolls for Thanksgiving!
They look delicious and it sounds simple to make!ReplyDelete
Mmmmmm mouth watering, I will defiantly try these.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment and congratulations on my giveaway, best of luck in the draw. I know what you mean about a slow computer, I get so frustrated when people put on videos and YouTube as I simply cannot play them when I am in France!!! Keep well Diane

Lyndsey, these look so good! We recently discovered garlic knots at an Italian restaurant in Anchorage (yes, living in Alaska does sometimes make it feel like I live under a rock!)ReplyDelete

Never tried garlic knots before though I have seen them in the food blogosphere recently.ReplyDelete
Lindsey-your garlic rolls look so amazing, light,and oh, so delicious. I would like to try this recipe out. It's gotta be good when a recipe is shared by someone's mom's. I can just smell the fresh rolls with the garlic on it...yumm!ReplyDelete
Please stop by my blog, you are invited to join in the fun of the 7 Links, to link 7 of your previous posts. I would love to see your roundup on your blog!
Adore garlic buns! Those knots look so soft and delicious.ReplyDelete
Nice garlic knots and I like to add more garlic in it.:)ReplyDelete
Lyndsey, these garlic rolls look so good! I'm so hungry now and I can't go sleep and now I look at your rolls.... stomach is reacting to them... I just saw Elizabeth's comment above - I can't wait to see your 7 links Lyndsey!ReplyDelete
These are Perfect!; exactly what I have been looking for; printed this one out.ReplyDelete
I love garlic knots but it's definitely always disappointing when you get bad ones! Better to just take matters into your own hands...these look great!ReplyDelete
I will be the star of Thanksgiving dinner with these! Of course I'll do a few practice runs beforehand.ReplyDelete
Lyndsey, these are so pretty. Actually they are more attractive than the ones in the bakery.ReplyDelete
Great job dear!!! they looks so perfect , soft and absolutely deliciousReplyDelete
Aww these are adorable! I'm marking for our next dinner party. =)ReplyDelete
These are so adorable! What a great alternative to breadsticks for pasta dishes :)ReplyDelete
These look killer good. Now you make me want to make them for Thanksgiving. I better practice, as as soon as it cools down!!!ReplyDelete
Today was my first day back at school. Was it yours??? Only 179 more to go. ;)
Gosh, I can wallop quite a number of these garlic knots on its own. Looks so soft.ReplyDelete
My gosh...that looks SO good! I will eat a dozen of it :D I'm sure they are just irresistible when just out of the oven. I must make one day, too. Thanks very much for sharing.ReplyDelete
i can have a few at one go, they are already sound terrific to me with garlic and cheese!ReplyDelete
They look beautiful and so fluffy! Love the topping too...ReplyDelete
Oh, I could really go for one of them now! They look so delicious! I so agree with you about "doughy" and am wondering about a bread machine. Good job with the rolls, Lyndsey!ReplyDelete
Your garlic knot looks so fluffy and delicious! And I can almost smell the aroma of the garlic!! Love garlic! Have a lovely weekend!ReplyDelete
Oh these look so good Lyndsey!ReplyDelete
I hope being back to work hasn't come as too much of a shock after spending a couple of months on holiday (oh how I wish I was you!)
Lyndz, finally...you made your own bread. So glad to see you see making them. I love the parmesan cheese topping. Sounds really tempting.ReplyDelete
Hope you're having a great day & enjoy your work!
this look so fresh and good.ReplyDelete
So, I'm making these tonight and noticed that you call for three tablespoons of yeast. That seems like a lot of yeast? Is that measurement really right?ReplyDelete
Sassy, I can't believe you are the first one to notice that. No it is not 3 tablespoons, but 3 teaspoons, and I think 3 teaspoons is more than I usually use. I hope it works for you and you enjoy them! Let me know.ReplyDelete
I went with 3 teaspoons because I couldn't imagine 3 tablespoons was right. These were really tasty! I ate way more than my share! I hope you like the coconut tart. The coconut crust would be great with a lime curd filling too if you've got limes hanging around.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh these are good! Mine, however, came out HUGE mainly because I don't know any different. LOL Seriously, these are delicious and will definitely be made again (and smaller, too, so we think there are more of them). :)ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh these were good! They came out a little on the 'big' side so next time I will make them smaller. Also, I used a glaze of melted butter, minced garlic, garlic powder and parm cheese. Then I sprinkled just a tad more parm when they were finished. Definitely will make these again. AWESOME!ReplyDelete
