Garlic Knot

From the shadows of the Italian kitchen into the spotlight of our heart. Garlic knots aren’t just a piece of leftover dough anymore. Tasty, garlicky, Yummy!

As I currently have a little time, I had been surfing on the web a few days ago. Attempting to find fresh, fascinating ideas, inspiring meals that We have never tried before, to impress my loved ones with. Searching for a long time unfortunately couldn’t discover any interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this scrumptious and simple treat by chance. The dessert seemed so scrumptious on its pic, it called for rapid action.

It absolutely was not difficult to imagine how it is made, its taste and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Actually, it is quite easy to delight him when it comes to puddings. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I went to the site: Suncakemom and used the step-by-step instuctions that have been coupled with impressive snap shots of the method. It really makes life much easier. I can imagine that it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot photos in the middle of baking in the kitchen because you normally have gross hands and so i pretty appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this post .

With that in mind I’m encouraged to present my own recipes in the same way. Thanks for the thought.

I was tweaking the main formula to make it for the taste of my family. I must mention it had been a terrific outcome. They loved the flavour, the structure and loved getting a delicacy such as this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They ultimately requested more, more and more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the quantity .

Original Garlic Knot is from Suncakemom.


Dissolve fresh yeast in a half cup of lukewarm (not hot!) milk. Set it aside whilst preparing the other ingredients.

Get a big bowl and put flour, sliced room temperature butter, egg and the lukewarm water in it.

Pour the dissolved yeast into the big bowl on top of the other ingredients.

Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about an hour to rise.


Crush or dice up the garlic.

Mix the garlic with the room temperature butter and the rest of the filling ingredients in a small bowl.


Prepare an egg wash by beating up an egg with a crushed garlic, basil, oregano and salt.


After an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a well-floured work surface.

Roll it into a square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.

Spread the butter with the herbs onto half of the dough.

Fold it in half so the butter creates a layer between the dough.

Then fold it again horizontally.

Leave it in a warm place under a kitchen towel for another 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.

After about 20 minutes when the dough have risen somewhat depending on the temperature.

Put it on a well-floured work surface to roll it in an approximately 10″ x 10″ / 30cm x 30cm square.

Cut about 1″ / 2cm wide stripes. Before cutting up the whole dough experiment with sizes. Find the length and with that is comfortable to make knots with.

Make knots out of the stripe and place roll into the the baking tray.

Give an egg wash to each roll before putting tray into the preheated oven.

If making knots gets boring just twist the stripes and make garlic twists.

Bake it for 20-25 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Eat them warm or cold with some melted cheese for more pleasure.
