Sip & Snack - Knotted

Whenever I am home visiting my folks there is a little old fashioned Italian restaurant in Sag Harbor, NY that we go to  strictly for the garlic knots. Growing up my having bread before the meal was not usually allowed, my dad used to tell me "if you still want it, you can have it after dinner" {booooo} but even he can't resist the bread before the meal with this heaping bowl of warm garlicky bread. So since we unfortunately aren't home as much in the winter as we are in the warmer month, I thought I would try to recreate this indulgent treat for my husband after his long week of travel.


Recipe

pre-made pizza dough or you can follow this recipe
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 olive oil
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 chopped Italian parsley
salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Mix garlic, butter, olive oil, parsley salt & pepper in a sauce pan on low heat till melted & the garlic is evenly cooked blended. Roll out pizza dough and cut into strips. Tie each strip into a knot & bake in oven for 15-20 minutes {or till golden brown} at 375 degrees. Once out of oven, brush with garlic butter topping & enjoy!

A glass of wine would have been easy peasy to just serve with this old fashioned snack. But instead I went with a Italian style cocktail with some ingredients of my favorite ingredients.
