Rosemary Bread Knots

Last week, one of Baby Brother’s coworkers brought a bunch of herbs to work to share with her coworkers. I came home to the aroma of fresh rosemary, chives and oregano.

Since then I’ve been cooking with them like crazy. I love the intoxicating  smells and the flavors they add to food. I especially adore the rosemary which I’ve been using on roasts, in my baking, etc. One of the things I baked were these rosemary bread knots. Basically garlic knots, except with rosemary instead.


Normally garlic knots are coated with some oil and garlic. I skipped that for these, choosing to leave them plain and less messy. These make nice bread rolls, though I overbaked mine slightly.

I used a recipe for garlic knots I had previously used, and adapted it for the rosemary. I would have liked my knots to be a little fluffier as these were more of a chewier bread roll.  I’ll have to experiment with more garlic knot recipes in the future.I am also submitting this post to yeastspotting

Recipe adapted from My Kitchen Snippets who adapted it from King Arthur’s Flour.
