I like serving fresh warm rolls with my meals, especially if I’m having someone over. But, it’s a lot of work to make rolls from scratch and more often than not I resort to baking a pack of ready-made biscuits or crescent rolls. Here’s a quick and easy way to spice up a batch of biscuits to make it look homemade and lend it more flavor!
Garlic Parmesan Knots Recipe
1 (16 oz) pack of your favorite Biscuits
3 tbsp of grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp dried Parsley
1 tsp dried Oregano
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
Butter Spray ( or 2 tbsp butter melted)
– Start by cracking open that pack of biscuits.
– On a lightly floured surface, roll a biscuit into a sausage shape. Once it’s around 6-7 inches long, tie a knot with the dough…a simple knot, just as you would a rope or shoe lace or whatever.
– Pull the one end over and tuck it in the back and push the other in to the back as well….ta da, looks fancier already doesn’t it?
– Bake the knots according to the instructions on the pack (mine said a 425F Oven for 15-17 minutes). Bake them in the oven for a few minutes less than what the pack says. I baked for 10 minutes.
– While your knots are baking, lets start with what makes these rolls so good
-The garlic parmesan topping. Grate about 3 tablespoons worth of fresh parmesan cheese…and if you must you can resort to the powdered parmesan that you get in a jar.
– Add a teaspoon each of dried parsley, oregano and kosher salt and add just 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix well.
– After around 10-12 minutes take the rolls out of the oven and spray with some butter (or if you’r using regular melted butter, brush it) on each roll.
– Sprinkle your topping over each of the rolls. Be generous!
– Pop the rolls back into to oven till they turn a beautiful golden.
