I know quite a few people out there have the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day book, so I just have to share this.
On saturday we went to an italian place for lunch and I was mourning the loss of these fantastic garlic knots that we used to get at a little red & white checked tablecloth kind of place in Greensboro. So there I was, complaining about not being able to get them and it occurred to me that OMG I could MAKE garlic knots!!
Thank goodness for google, eh? I googled a few recipes, wound up with one I was happy with, ignored the making the bread dough part and just used the dough I had ready to go in the fridge and voila!
OMG people, SO. Freaking. Good.
They were a little big for a side for two people, I will try to make them smaller next time, and my knots weren't perfect - but hey, put enough garlic and butter on them and who's criticizing your knots??? That's right...nobody.
Do it. You know you want to. They're amazingly yummy!
A tip: Stand anxiously over the oven while you are baking them, I baked these 18 minutes and that was a bit too long, make them smaller and I would say 10-12 minutes to get that ooey-gooeyness-smooshy inside that you want in something like this.
