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.
- 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)
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
- Melt butter
- Combine butter with all seasoning in a bowl
- Tear each biscuit dough in half and roll out lengthwise in your hands
- Tie each dough roll into a simple single knot and drop in the butter bowl
- Once the entire can has been tied and placed in the butter gently coat the knots
- 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.
