The Best Bread Knots & Twists
I love bread and these Bread Knots & Twists are no exception. You can make them from scratch by throwing together ingredients for Dinner Rolls dough or you can purchase it, premade, frozen. Either way you can make Knots & Twists that are absolutely amazing. Once you learn a simple twist and tie technique, all you have to do is let the dough rise, brush in the Garlic seasoned butter, sprinkle on the Parmesan Cheese and Oregano, then bake to perfection. In just a matter of minutes, you can sink your teeth into an American Tuscany; code for Heaven on Earth.
Bread Knots & Twists
Dinner Rolls Dough Ingredients:
4 to 5 Cups Flour
2 tbsp Yeast, Instant Rapid Rise
1/3 cup Sugar, granulated
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 Cups Warm Milk, 110 degrees
2 tbsp Melted Butter, for basting
Freeze dough or follow the instructions, below, for Bread Knots & Twists.
Bread Knots & Twists Ingredients:
16 Frozen Dough Dinner Rolls, thawed
1 Cube Unsalted Butter, melted
1/2 tsp Salt (Don’t add salt if butter is salted)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
Parmesan Cheese to taste
Oregano to taste
Bread Knots & Twists Instructions:
To make Bread Knots & Twists, thaw and Roll the dough before it rises. Twist and Tie the dough into desired shapes and place on a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Cover with a towel and allow the dough to rise at least triple the size. In the meantime, melt 1 cube of Butter and add the Salt, Garlic Powder and Onion Powder and stir with a whisk. When the dough has risen, baste and coat the dough with the melted Butter mixture. Then shake Parmesan and Oregano over the top of all the Knots and Twists. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 Minutes. Then coat again with the remaining butter and serve Garlic Parmesan Bread Knots & Twists while they’re still warm.
If you want the dough to rise quicker after you’ve twisted and tied the rolls into knots, heat your oven to 200 degrees then turn it off. Add a large bowl of water to the bottom rack and place the cookie sheet full of dough on the top rack. The dough will rise 3 times faster this way so keep a close eye on it and be sure NOT to cover with a towel this way. The Bread Knots & Twists won’t turn out right, if you do.
