From Todd These take me back to my days of working in the restaurant business. Every day the kitchen would crank out a huge basket of garlic knots that we’d sell throughout the day. Those little devils would also serve as staff sustenance, since more often than not, breaks were skipped in order to get the day’s tasks done. Even after consuming what seems like a thousand garlic knots, I have never tired of snacking on them to get me through a long day. After leaving the restaurant business, that daily ritual inspired me to create my own version, and they are as addicting as ever.
It is not necessary to knead this dough; that will only toughen it. When you’re rolling the dough, lightly oil the surface you roll on to help the dough stick just enough, and lightly flour your hands and the dough balls to keep them from sticking too much. Find the balance between the two for best results.
