When I was in high school, I used to love pizza. Then somewhere along the way I decided I was no longer a fan. I think now I’m somewhere in between. I appreciate a good slice every once in a while, and enjoy making my own pizza at home.
Honesty though, I think I may actually love garlic knots more than pizza. I love the burst of pungent garlic flavor that comes from biting into the pillowy, warm dough. I had many cans of Pillsbury dough to use up, so I rolled the biscuits into knots and brushed garlic on them after baking. Simple and so so yum, especially when paired with some warm tomato sauce!
Recipe: Homemade garlic knots
Makes 32 garlic knots
1 can of Grands junior biscuits
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
Dash of dried oregano
Freshly cracked pepper
1 cup of tomato sauce
1. Heat the oven to 325 F.
2. Remove the biscuits from the can. Cut each biscuit in half. Using your fingers, roll each into a rope. Then knot each piece. They will stay in place.
3. Place knots on a baking pan with parchment paper (would not recommend silpat since it may small like garlic). Place in oven and bake for 8-9 minutes, or until golden brown.
4. In a bowl, add garlic, oil, cheese, oregano and freshly cracked pepper.
5. Warm up the tomato sauce over the stove or microwave.
6. Once the garlic knots are done, brush garlic mixture over each piece while hot. Serve immediately with a side of warm sauce.
