Parmesan Knots

Jeanne Benavidez


I love hot, homemade bread of all kinds. Here is something that I created using my Classic Dinner Roll recipe and kicking it up a little bit. These are great served with spaghetti or your favorite soup or stew.

How to Make Parmesan Knots


  • 1Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl.
  • 2Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120º to 130ºF).
  • 3Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.

  • 7Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • 8Bake at 400° for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 9In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; brush the warm knots with the mixture.
  • 10Serve warm with your favorite spaghetti, soup or stew.
