Easy Garlic Knots

My Grandmother was the best bread baker.  She really made bread easy for me since I am a visual learner.  Show me once and I will never forget. 

She taught me her easy dinner roll recipe.  I make it all the time..but also take liberties with her original recipe that can be easily doubled or tripled.  Today, I made the recipe and added a BIG shake of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons oregano and a quarter cup grated Parmesan cheese.

Quick Dinner Rolls


1/2 c warm water, (maybe a splash more)
3 tb oil
1 tb instant yeast
2 tb sugar
1/2 ts salt
1  egg yolk
1 3/4 c flour

Heat oven to 400F.

In mixer bowl, combine water, oil, yeast and sugar.  Allow to rest for 15 minutes.

Using your dough hook, mix in the salt, egg and flour.  Knead with hook for a few minutes.   Dough should be smooth and silky.    (Note:  Grandma Grace made these by hand....I cheat and use my mixer.)

Form dough into 6 balls and place in a greased muffin tin.  Cover with damp dish towel and let rise for 10 minutes.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Mr. Bill,
At last! A bread recipe that I may have luck with :-) One question, how do you get the knot look? Is that 5 or 6 smaller balls rolled out a little then pinched together in a spiral? Can’t wait to try this, Thanks so much for sharing. – gary

Knots are easy Gary....just roll out a piece of dough to a 12" rolling out clay back in school. Take the length and tie a loose knot in the middle and then tuck in the ends around the middle knot. That's it!

These look great and I have to try the recipe. I'm glad you explained about the knot. You make it sound and look easy enough! Do they sort of have a yeast taste? Are they on the sweet side? I like that there is only one rising. I've experimented with roll recipes lately trying to find the perfect one and it seems like this just might be the one! Thanks for the recipe!!!

Now that is my kind of food. I love bread. In fact I stopped buying it as I want to eat too much. These sound heavenly.

A little too sweet from all the sugar needed to activate the yeast so fast but light and fluffy and delicious
