Garlic knot rolls are the entire reason that I visit certain restaurants — even when I am on low carb I cannot resist them.
But who could resist them? I like them when they are practically dripping garlic butter (OK, not practically.. definitely) and are so soft that they almost melt when you bite into them. I love that cloudlike texture and then the rush of buttery garlicky goodness that happens.
This will probably sound stupid but it took me a long time to figure out how to knot those things so that they didn’t look like alien body parts.
So I was all cool about creating this video for you to watch. It shows you exactly how to create perfect garlic knots but then I forgot them on the counter (I have ADD, remember?) and they rose too much. They were delicious but the finished product was not gorgeous, to say the least.
I hope you enjoy the video. I did it by myself when everyone was gone. I also didn’t bother to put on shoes so I was short. That wouldn’t be a problem except as I was filming my chest kept photo-bombing the video.
Live and learn, right?
Well, on a happy note — although I am not going to win Next Food Network Star anytime soon I am getting better!
These rolls are soft. If you want to have them a bit crispy and crusty then substitute water for the milk.
I based these on the recipe at King Arthur Flour.
