For dinner I made a spinach & cheese lasagna for myself and a traditional one for Hubster. I thought about making garlic bread, but thought garlic knots would be more fun. I couldn’t find the recipe I had book marked to try, so I used my focaccia bread recipe as the base of my garlic knots and improvised from there.

Garlic Knots

Garlic Knots


4 tsp. yeast, 4 c. flour, 4 Tbs. olive oil, 1 3/4 c. warm water, fresh ground sea salt, garlic powder, minced garlic, oregano

Mix together yeast, 1/2 c. flour and 1/2 c. water. Cover with a warm moist towel and store in a warm area for 1/2 hour. Mix in remaining, flour, water, and some salt. Knead dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes. Oil dough and place in a metal bowl, cover with warm moist towel and store in a warm area for about an hour. Preheat oven 400°F. Grease baking tray. Using floured hands roll out dough. Rub top with EVOO and sprinkle on the garlic powder, fresh ground sea salt, and oregano. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 2″ thick strips. Knot and tuck each piece of dough and place on baking tray. Press minced garlic on tops. Bake for about 15 minutes and serve warm.
