Perfect before dinner: Garlic Parmesan Knots

Who can resist noshing on yummy garlic bread before the pizza or spaghetti is served? Once you taste these easy-to-make knots, that main course may not even be necessary! 

You will need:

For the garlicky butter:

  • 4 tsp parmesan
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For the dough:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 stick butter
  • 2/3 cup yogurt

Here's how:

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the buttery topping in a small bowl. 
  2. Add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and butter to a separate bowl and knead the ingredients together. Finally, pour in the yogurt and continue to knead until you have a smooth dough.
  3. Take small portions of the dough, and roll the portions out on a work surface to create long strands. Tie the strands into knots. 
  4. Dip the knots into the butter, and place them onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for 14 minutes at 350°F. 

It doesn't get any easier than that! These garlic knots don't have to be the opening act for any main course. Serve them with a side of marinara sauce and you've got an unbeatable snack. Enjoy!
