Frequently Asked Questions
- How Long Do They Last?
When stored properly, the garlic knots will last for several days at room temperature. It is important that the knots are covered to protect them from drying out.
- How Do I Store Leftovers? I love making a big batch of these homemade garlic knots. While they are best served immediately, leftovers are good too. Once the garlic knots have cooled they can be stored in the fridge.
- Can You Freeze Them? If you will not be able to eat all the homemade garlic knots , consider freezing them. The garlic knots will stay good for up to three months in the freezer. It is important to make sure to store them wrapped tightly in plastic or in freezer bags to prevent the knots from getting freezer burn. They’re also wonderful to pull out for a quick pasta supper. (Like boxed garlic bread only better!).
- How Do I Reheat Them? There is nothing better than fresh from the oven garlic knots. But just because there are leftovers doesn’t mean you have to miss out on soft rolls. You can reheat the homemade garlic knots in the oven or even in the microwave. If reheating in the microwave be sure to wrap them in a damp paper towel. This will help the knots to stay moist ,and not dry out.
Dipping Sauce Ideas
I love dunking my knots in sauce. A few simple ideas are:
- Ranch: My favorite! Garlic Parmesan knots + ranch=heaven.
- Marinara: A classic choice for sure, but it is a great tasting combination.
- Cheese: Make a homemade cheese sauce for a delicious twist.
- Herbed Olive Oils: Just like at your favorite Italian restaurant! If you have leftover herb butter it works great too!
- Add Cheese: Sprinkle the top with Parmesan or mozzarella for a cheesy roll.
- Mix Up The Herbs: Add whatever you have on hand. Rosemary, basil, or even a pinch of Italian seasoning would be lovely.
- Use Pizza Dough: You can also use canned, or fresh pizza dough in this recipe if you’d prefer.
- Make Them Spicy: Add red pepper flakes to taste.
