PREP. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with a silpat. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

SEASONING. Melt the butter in a small bowl. Add the Parmesan, garlic powder, oregano, parsley and salt. Mix together and set aside.

BISCUITS. Open the can of biscuits. Cut each of the 8 pieces of dough in half so that you have 16 pieces of dough. Roll each piece into a rope about 6 inches long and ½ inch thick.

BAKE. Tie each rope into a knot. Place them on the baking sheet making sure to tuck the end of the rope under the knot. Brush the tops of the dough knot with half of the butter mixture. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove knots from the oven and brush with the remaining butter mix. Serve warm.

Recipe Tips

Using Pizza dough: You can use a canned package of  pizza dough  or even homemade pizza dough. Simply let the dough rise for 30 minutes. Shape it into the knot and let rise another 5-10 minutes before brushing with garlic mixture and baking for about 13 minutes.

Garlic: add or subtract the amount of garlic to your desired state.

Spice it up: If you want to give the knots a little kick, then simply sprinkle a few red chili flakes on top

Dippable: These are delicious all on their own, but they also pair well with your favorite dips. Some of mine include:

Storing Info

These are best served fresh and warm, but they can be STORED for later. Place in an airtight container and store for 2-3 days

To FREEZE, flash freeze first, or separate layers with parchment paper. Freeze for 2-3 months. Reheat in the oven or microwave.

I don’t recommend freezing canned dough, but if you use homemade pizza dough, then you can freeze it in dough form.
