Sometimes you just need something a little fancy to go with dinner. Unfortunately, it is already too late in the day to have something homemade fresh and fancy, so you have to settle for semi-homemade fancy. Like these Italian Garlic Knots.
Many years ago, when I used to live in Weaverville, NC there was a pizzeria on the main drag. It was small, locally owned, and fabulous. Not just the pizza, either. They had sandwiches, pastas, craft alcohols, and the best garlic bread. I could go there to just eat their homemade, ever so fresh, extra garlic, always warm garlic knots with an ice cold glass of tea. They were the best thing ever!
Not having the time to make bread from scratch, I settled for store bought pizza dough with homemade garlic butter sauce. Garlic Knots were quick and easy to make, even though very few of my knots stayed knotted, and made leftover night something fancy.
Scale for Likeness: Good
Were they as good as the local pizza place? Not even close. Were they good enough to make and eat again even if there was time to make homemade knots from scratch? Absolutely.
