I typically try to do some sort of bread with every dinner I cook at home. Sometimes that is bread with butter and sometimes it’s canned biscuits. I’ve noticed that there is a definite quality difference between the store brand $0.50 tube of canned biscuits and the $4+ can of flaky rolls from one of the name brands. But in our house (and I’m assuming we’re not the only ones) we can’t justify $4 every night just for biscuits. I found this hack and I don’t know that our dinner sides will ever be the same.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 Tbps Parmesean
  • 3/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano (dried)
  • 1/2 tsp Parsley (dried)
  • 1 can of biscuits (16 oz)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Melt butter
  3. Combine butter with all seasoning in a bowl
  4. Tear each biscuit dough in half and roll out lengthwise inĀ  your hands
  5. Tie each dough roll into a simple single knot and drop in the butter bowl
  6. Once the entire can has been tied and placed in the butter gently coat the knots
  7. Place the knots on a baking sheet and bake 5-10 minutes (until desired level of browning)

These changed our $0.50 can of biscuits into mouth watering garlic knots. These could be really useful as an appetizer served with some marinara and sprinkled with a little cheese before baking. Everyone also seemed to eat less bread because even eating 3 knots you felt like you had a lot but it was effectively less than eating 2 boring old biscuits.
