I love the way these garlic knots look. It changes up the plain old roll!! I found this recipe on A Kitchen Addiction after looking for some different but easy rolls to make for Easter this year. They are very easy to make especially if you have a bread machine to do the dough work for you! I didn’t have fresh garlic so I used garlic powder and I also didn’t have fresh parsley so I used dried and I thought they turned out wonderful. This will definitely be the roll on our Easter table this year.
- FOR THE ROLLS:
- 1 1/4 c. bread flour
- 1 c. whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp yeast
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 TBSP butter melted
- 3/4 c. warm milk about 120 degrees F
- FOR THE GLAZE
- 1/4 c butter melted
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 TBSP dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp salt
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, salt and sugar.
- Add in butter and milk. Mix together until it starts to come together.
- Dump onto a greased counter top and knead for 5-8 minutes. You may need more flour if your dough is too sticky.
- Shape the dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl and cover. Let rise in a warm place until doubled. About 1 hour.
- Turn dough out onto a floured or oiled surface and gently roll into a 4x12 inch rectangle. Cut into 16 strips.
- Take each strip and roll into a rope. Tie each rope into a knot and place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Combine melted butter, garlic, dried parley and salt. Brush over each roll.
