'Garlic Lovers' Garlic Knots

This is new recipe that I just came up with. We used to get these awesome garlic knots at a restaurant that we used to go to every other week. We stopped going because we started avoiding wheat and that's pretty hard to do in an Italian restaurant! Tim and I got talking about them one day and how much we missed them and then I said, "well, duh! I could make them!!" So I did and here's the result!

For this recipe I'll be using a Chebe breadsticks mix, but you can use whatever breadstick/dough recipe that you want.

You will need:
  • Chebe mix or other dough recipe
  • About 1 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced garlic
Here's how:

First, pre-heat your oven to whatever your dough recipe calls for--375 if you're using Chebe mix.

Then take a measuring cup and put about 1/2 cup or so of minced garlic in.

Then take your olive oil and fill it to the 1 cup line. Stir it and set it aside.

Now make your dough. Take your completed dough ball and divide it into 12 equal balls. Roll them into a strip and then tie them in a knot and place them on a baking sheet. Make sure to use a pan with a lip around the edge. ;)

Throw in the oven for about 15 minutes (this will again depend on your recipe). Pull them out and drizzle your olive oil and garlic over them. This will kind of happen in two stages; you'll drizzle the olive oil first and then kind of 'plop' the garlic on. If your meat (or whatever you're eating these with) is done you can eat them right away, if its not, turn off your oven and throw them back in the oven until the rest of the meal is done.
