Do you love home cooking? What dishes get everyone excited about dinner in your family?
My husband tells me time and again how much he loves my home cooking. He says that his favorite thing is walking through the door after a long day at work and smelling the delicious meal I’ve prepared for our family. There is something really special about coming home to a kitchen filled with the aroma of a home cooked meal.
With two little ones and a busy schedule, I can’t always make everything from scratch, but I will say that these homemade garlic knots make for a mouthwatering smell that gets your appetite going when you walk through the door.
A Touch of Homemade
These easy-to make garlic knots are from scratch. I love the flavor of minced garlic with a touch of Italian seasonings. Combine these with a Ribeye steak, fresh steamed broccoli and STOUFFER’S® Mac & Cheese for the perfect in home family meal. I love the convenience of STOUFFER’S®, their dishes make it easy to have a hot meal on the table and they free up my time so I can spend more of it with my kids and husband.
STOUFFER’S® encourages families to gather around the dinner table for family meals and is offering a $2.00 Off Coupon to everyone who purchases two family sized entrees. (Buy two family size or bigger 28 oz., earn $2.00) Why not enjoy a delicious dish from STOUFFER’S® and a tasty family meal?
To create the family meal you see pictured here, I just started baking the STOUFFER’S® about an hour before we were ready to eat. I popped in the garlic knots at the tail end of the cooking cycle to bake them and everything was ready right on time. Hot and ready to eat.

Why Homemade Garlic Knots?
These Homemade Garlic Knots are made from a light, flaky buttermilk biscuit dough. You can’t beat the buttery flavor of a homemade biscuit dough. And, when you make these at home, you can add as much minced garlic as you like. There is just no substitute for the aroma of freshly baked garlic in the oven.
Ingredients for Homemade Garlic Knots
- 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour (more for coating the countertop and your hands)
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 Tablespoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Cup Buttermilk
- 2 Tablespoons Crisco (I used coconut oil)
- Butter or spray oil to grease cooking pan
- 1/2 Cup melted butter
- 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
- 1 Tablespoon dried Oregano
Directions for Homemade Garlic Knots
Step 1: Gather all ingredients and pre-heat the oven. I like to gather all my ingredients together before I start to make sure I have everything. Preheat the oven t0 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Mix the dry components . Add the baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the flour and mix to combine.
Step 3: Add the buttermilk to the dough. It’s best to add the buttermilk to the dough slowly. Gently mix it in to combine.
Step 4: Add the Crisco or Coconut Oil last. Do not melt the fats. You want the fats to be at room temperature when you add them in. Fold them in gently. It’s ok to have lumps as it adds flakiness to the dough.
Step 5: Form the dough into “ropes”. I find it easiest to roll out the dough and cut it into strips to create equal-sized dough pieces. Once you have the pieces “cut”, roll them into ropes about 12 inches long.
To create the “knot” with the dough, simply tie the dough into a knot and tuck in the ends.

Step 6: Add the butter topping. Melt the butter in a small heat proof bowl in the microwave in 20 second intervals until melted. Then add the garlic, garlic sat, and seasonings. Use a pastry brush to brush the mixture onto the surfaces of the garlic knots. See the video for a step-by-step guide.
Step 7: Cook the Homemade Garlic Knots. Bake the garlic knots for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove from oven and feel free to add more buttery garlic topping as desired.
Prepare any additional dishes to pair with these garlic knots for some delicious home cooking.
