These rolls are perfect when you want to give your side breads a teeny bit of personality, without having to go through a lot of work. MORE+ LESS-

You’ll be calling them forget-me-knots because they’ll be something friends and family will definitely remember, especially if served with a slather of garlic butter. Here’s how to make them:

a breadboard with bread dough cut into strips

Cut the dough in half crosswise. Cut each half lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter in half lengthwise. (You should have 16 pieces.) Roll and stretch each piece into a 12-inch-long rope.

hands tying a knot into bread dough and three bread knots on a cookie sheet

Tie each rope into a knot. Brush with beaten egg white, and then bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
