Parmesan Garlic Knots

These are easy-peasy and very delicious.  I am a big fan of any recipe that has cheese and warm bread, and this one didn't disappoint.  You don't even have to make the dough!  This uses canned buttermilk biscuit dough.  This whole recipe takes like 12 minutes to make, and with the exception of the can of dough, I had all the ingredients in the house already, which I think will be true for most people.  Try to eat them hot out of the oven.


1 tube of refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough (I bought one that had 16 oz. of dough and made 8 large biscuits, so adjust the recipe accordingly)
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons canola oil
3 1/2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (I used the green can kind - nothing fancy)
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  

2.  Roll each biscuit into a skinny rope and tie into a knot.  I found it hard to make knots, so I sort of made mine into pretzel shape and then mushed it together.

3.  Bake the biscuits on a tray for 8-10 minutes, until browned.

4.  While the biscuits are baking, make the herb and cheese mixture.  Simply put the oil, Parmesan, garlic powder, oregano, and basil into a small bowl and stir until well mixed.

5.  When the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the herb and cheese mixture generously on each biscuit.  Makes 8 Parmesan garlic knots.  Enjoy!
