Prep time: United States American
Cook time: Servings: 15 Knots, depending on size


  • 1/2 c warm water
  • 1 1/4 tsp active yeast
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 c bread flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • Topping
  • 1/4 c butter, melted
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large bowl, combine the warm water and yeast. Stir in the oil. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt, garlic powder and thyme. Combine the flour mixture with the yeast mixture. Knead dough until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  2. Allow the dough to rise covered in a greased bowl in a dark, warm place until doubled, about an hour and a half.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Punch down the dough and roll into a rectangle, approximately 18 x 12 inches.
  5. Using a pizza cutter, cut 3/4-inch slices. Tie each slice into a knot and tie the ends into a second knot. For easier knotting, you can place the dough in the freezer for several minutes to stiffen it up some. (To bake later, you can freeze them in a single layer and bake them at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.)
  6. Bake on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Meanwhile, combine the topping ingredients in a bowl. Brush the topping over the garlic knots.
  8. Serve with marinara sauce.
  9. Enjoy!
