If you have ever gone out to an Italian pizzeria, I’m sure you have had garlic knots. Those buttery little dough balls that everyone fights for when they hit the table are usually everyone’s favorite part of the meal. I wanted to make those yummy knots at home. I thought of using pizza dough but decided Pillsbury® refrigerated breadsticks would be the perfect size and take only minutes to prepare. I was right!
I unrolled the dough, separated the strips and twisted and tied them into knots. Then I cooked up a little butter, oil, garlic and herbs to drizzle over them before baking.
These knots are so yummy and extremely versatile. Use fresh or dried herbs. For a twist, sprinkle with a little Parmesan or Romano cheese or even red pepper flakes before baking.
Trust me, if you make these once you will make them over and over again because everyone will love them!
They are even a fun way to get the kids cooking by having them tie the knots and drizzle with the garlic butter.
