Garlic knots are perfect to eat alone or dipping into the marinara sauce. 

Like I mentioned before, garlic is one of my favorite seasonings.  I use garlic almost on everything I cook. 

Garlic knots are a beautiful twist of regular breadsticks.  My kids love to eat in the morning along with fried eggs as well.  The aroma of garlic when you re-toast them in the oven, it’s definitely making our morning.

These are also a fun bite-size appetizer to serve along with pizza, salad or soup.
