A couple of weekends ago we had some friends over for dinner. I decided to make spaghetti because I knew that our kids and our friends kids would eat pasta. I thought about french bread to go along as a side, but didn’t want to run back into town to buy some from the store. I decided that these great little Garlic Knot rolls would be the perfect touch. They turned out great using my 30-minute dinner roll recipe that we all love. I love how it only took about 30 minutes to whip these rolls together. That takes away all the stress when it comes to cooking dinner for friends. Hope you enjoy these tasty Garlic Knot Rolls!
1 cup + 2 T of warm water
1/3 cup olive oil
2 T yeast
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
3 1/2 cups of flour
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine water, oil yeast and sugar. Let rest for 15 minutes. The yeast in the mixture will make the mixture expand.
Add 2 cups of flour, salt and egg to the yeast mixture. Combine then add 1/2 cup at a time of the other cup of flour while your mixer is running. The dough will be sticky, but you don’t want it too stick to where you can’t handle it. Add more flour if needed.
Spray a 9×13 pan with non-stick and form dough into the knot rolls. I did this by rolling out piece of dough into a snake shape. But not too skinny of a snake. Then take the two ends of your rolled out dough and tie it like a knot. Brush the tops with olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic powder and dried parsley flakes. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown on tops.
