Olive Oil Garlic Knots Recipe

Main Street Mercantile Garlic Olive Oil Garlic Knots
Makes 2-2 1/2 Dozen


4 – 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup Harvest Garlic Olive Oil from Main Street Mercantile, Georgetown CA

1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs

Garlic Infused California Olive Oil


In a large mixer bowl combine 2 cups of the flour and the yeast. In saucepan heat milk; sugar; oil; and salt just till warm; stir constantly. Add to flour mixture; add eggs. Beat at low speed of electric mixer for 1/2 minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes at high speed.

Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can mix in with a spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6-8 minutes total). Shape into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover; let rise in warm place till double (about 1 hour).

Punch down; divide dough in half. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into strips of about 1 inch wide by 5 inches long. Cut these strips in half. Take one piece and work it into a snake, then tie it in a knot. The dough will be sticky along the cut edges, so dust these with flour before you tie the knot. Cover; let rise till nearly double (about 30 minutes). Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or till done.

Topping: 1 tablespoon of your OTHER favorite Infused California Olive Oil, such as our Tuscan Herb Olive Oil, or any of the others

1 tablespoon fresh herbs


After baking, blend olive oil with fresh or dried herbs, salt, pepper, and/or Parmesan and brush onto hot rolls.
