Quick Rosemary Garlic Knots
I really enjoy making homemade bread of all kinds. I make homemade rolls for all of our holiday dinners and family get togethers.
I planted a couple of rosemary plants in the garden this year and so far I have been able to keep them alive. I love having fresh herbs all year long. The fresh rosemary made these bread knots something special.
We also have some winter kale growing right now. It’s growing really slow but I hope to be able to pick some soon. I thought the last cold snap would’ve killed it but it’s still growing!
I think I’m the worst at shaping rolls but these little knots were pretty easy and didn’t have to be perfect to look pretty when baked. I don’t do perfect, EVER.
I used 2 packages of my favorite Red Star Yeast Platinum to speed up the process. I’m always in a hurry, aren’t you? I get the most reliable results from Red Star Yeast and they have the best tips and troubleshooting for successful bread baking.

I mixed up the dough and then I kneaded it for about 3-4 minutes. I let it rest for 15 minutes while I was washing dishes. My word we make a lot of dishes since we are here on the ranch 24-7.
After the dough rested, I punched it down to remove the air bubbles and cut the dough in half. I rolled each half into about a 10- 12 inch rectangle/oval shape.
I cut it into 1-inch strips and then cut them in half. That makes the rolls small – about 3 bites. If you want larger knots just skip cutting the strips in half.
I tied each strip into a knot and then tucked the ends back into the center and placed them on parchment paper. I let them rise while the oven preheated and then baked them up. They bake in about 10 minutes.
I added fresh rosemary and garlic to melted butter and let it simmer while the rolls baked. I brushed it over the rolls generously and served them right away with dinner. Dinner just happened to be my favorite Chicken Fried Steak Bites with Country Gravy.
They were the perfect for a weeknight dinner but totally fancy enough for entertaining or holiday dinners.
Since these rolls are little, they make a perfect appetizer for holidays or game day get togethers. They are outstanding fresh from the oven but also great at room temperature.

- Punch dough down and divide into 2 sections. Roll each section to about a 10 to 12 inch rectangle (mine was more of an oval).
- Use a pizza cutter to cut into 1 inch strips. Cut each strip in half.
- Roll each strip into a rope shape and loop together and tie in a knot and tuck ends back into the center. Place on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining dough.
