Easy Parmesan Garlic Knots

I love baking bread.  I enjoy the whole process from proofing the yeast to kneading the dough.  But sometimes (with a toddler and a preschooler underfoot) I simply don’t have time to bake bread from scratch.

On those days when I am craving bread, but lack the time, I turn to simple, yet delicious recipes like these Easy Garlic Knots.  For this recipe, simple buttermilk biscuits are transformed into elegant dinner rolls with a change of shape and a brushing of herbs and butter.  And the best part is the baking time, these rolls are done in 15 minutes, from start to finish.

Recipe Notes:
*If you don’t have refrigerated buttermilk biscuits on hand, try using refrigerated pizza dough or crescent rolls.

Easy Parmesan Garlic Knots
Adapted from All Recipes

1 (12 oz) tube of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
½ tsp dried parsley
½ tsp dried oregano
¼ tsp garlic
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a sharp knife or kitchen scissors, cut each biscuit in half.  Carefully roll each half into a 6 inch long rope.  Tie each rope in a loose knot and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the knots are golden brown.

Meanwhile, whisk together the melted butter, parmesan, and spices.  Immediately after the knots come out of the oven, brush the butter mixture onto each roll with a pastry brush.  Serve hot.
