Ingredients for Garlic Parmesan Knots

  • Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits: I like to use Pillsbury Grands biscuit dough.
  • Unsalted Butter: Unsalted butter is best for this recipe because you can control the salt content in your recipe.
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese: Grated parmesan cheese works better than shredded.
  • Garlic Powder: I prefer garlic powder over fresh garlic for these knots.
  • Dried Oregano: Is a common spice used in Italian dishes and works well paired with garlic.
  • Dried Parsley:
  • Salt: Add more or less depending on your taste.

How to make garlic knots

  • Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or lightly grease baking sheet.
  • Cut each of the 8 biscuits in half, making 16 pieces.
  • Roll each biscuit into a rope, 1/2 inch thick, and tie them into a knot.
  • Place each knot onto a prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Add parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried oregano, dried parsley, and salt. Whisk to combine ingredients well.
  • Brush each knot with half of the garlic butter mixture and place in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and brush garlic knots with the remaining garlic butter mixture. Serve immediately and Enjoy!

Tips for making the best garlic knots

  • You may need to microwave reserved garlic butter for 20 seconds before brushing it on warm rolls from the oven. As butter sits, it tends to harden a bit.
  • You can substitute refrigerated pizza dough for biscuit dough if that’s what you have on hand.
  • Parmesan garlic knots are delicious served with a side of marinara sauce for a delicious appetizer.
