You know what makes any dinner extraordinary? Dinner rolls. Think about it. Most holiday meals or special occasions have dinner rolls on the table. When we go out to eat at a fancy restaurant, they usually have some sort of bread to munch on. Warm, fluffy and tender yeast breads give any occasion a special touch. I actually survive mostly on carbs, (yes, I realize that is a very weird diet) and these cute knots are something I make when I want to give any weeknight dinner a special flair. They are so easy to make, that it’s a shame we don’t make them more often.
These beautiful rolls take so little effort and are topped with garlic, herbs and Parmesan. You can even make the dough ahead of time, shape them and keep them refrigerated a day in advance and then you’ll magically have warm Garlic and Herb Knots on the table fresh out of the oven. They will disappear from the basket faster than you would believe. They are perfect any time of year, whether you’re serving them on a Wednesday evening with a bowl of soup of a full blown Thanksgiving dinner….
