You might think we’re being over-the-top when we say these Cheesy Garlic Knots are about to change your life but we are serious! Double-baked to true perfection and so easy to make, they are indulgent, flavorful, and comforting and we haven’t met anyone who doesn’t fall head over heels for them.

What makes our cheesy garlic knots stand out

There are many things that make our cheesy garlic knots the absolute best. For instance, the fact that they are double-baked helps to achieve the most amazing texture. They are also slathered in marinara sauce, baked in cheese, and drenched in Danish creamery butter.

Using Danish Creamery butter makes this recipe extra yummy. Inspired by traditional Danish butter, Danish Creamery’s recipe hasn’t changed since 1895.

It is made with pure sweet cream and sea salt and churned to perfection in the classic Danish way. Because of that, Danish Creamery butter is richer and creamier than any other butter. The extra time and care put into making Danish Creamery butter is what makes this extra delicious.

All of these components make for a standout recipe that can be served on its own or with some of our favorite dinner recipes.

What to serve with our cheesy garlic knots

These cheesy garlic knots are a great appetizer all on their own. They are baked twice — once on their own and the second time in a delicious blend of garlic, Danish creamery butter, parsley, and marinara. As a result, these bread bites don’t need a dipping sauce!

While they are great as is, these cheesy garlic knots can also work as a side dish to these amazing dinner recipes we have here at Food Dolls:

  • If you want to curate a true Italian meal, then look no further than our one pot spaghetti carbonara. This simple pasta recipe truly is an incredible pairing to these garlic knots. It is packed with flavors that perfectly match our cheesy garlic knots.
  • Our chicken wild rice soup is a healthy and nourishing soup that warms you from the inside out. You can absolutely serve this soup with plain crackers, but for some extra indulgence, our cheesy garlic knots take this simple soup recipe up a notch!
  • These garlic knots with melted mozzarella cheese are vegetarian. If you want to keep your entire meal meat-free, then our one pot pasta puttanesca is right up your alley! This saucy pasta dish comes together in under thirty minutes and is so flavorful.

How to make cheesy garlic knots

  1. Thaw the frozen dinner rolls. This will usually take about 2-3 hours.
  2. Portion out the dinner rolls, and roll them in your hands into 6-inch tubes. Make knots with the dough, and place them on a baking sheet. Bake the knots for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. When cooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool.
  4. Place all of the dough knots in a large mixing bowl and toss them with melted butter, parsley, and garlic. Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients together so that the dough balls are slathered in butter. (You can definitely eat them just like this as garlic knots!)
  5. Transfer the bread bites to an oven-safe baking dish.
  6. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  7. Top with marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the cheese is slightly brown and bubbling.
  8. Remove from the oven and serve hot!

Can I make these garlic knots gluten free?

You can totally make these delicious cheesy garlic knots gluten-free. It may be challenging to find gluten-free frozen dinner roll dough, but you can use any gluten-free pizza dough in its place!

First, bake the gluten-free dough per the instructions on the packaging. Then follow our recipe exactly as is. And voila! You have the most delicious gluten-free cheesy garlic knots.

Alternatively, you can use already-baked gluten-free dinner rolls and pick up our recipe at the step after the first bake.
