Parmesan Knots Recipe

In Parkersburg, West Virginia, Cathy Adams uses refrigerated biscuits to make a big batch of these buttery snacks. They're handy to keep in the freezer and a snap to reheat and serve with a meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:60 servings


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash pepper
  • 3 tubes (12 ounces each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, cheese, parsley, oregano, garlic powder and pepper; set aside.
  • 2. Cut each biscuit in half. Roll each portion into a 6-in. rope; tie in a loose knot. Place on greased baking sheets.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 8-11 minutes or until golden brown; immediately brush with the Parmesan mixture. Serve warm or freeze for up to 2 months.
  • 4. To use frozen knots: Reheat, unthawed, at 350° for 15-20 minutes. Yield: 5 dozen.

"Delicious! Made with soup my son didn't touch the soup and usually that is one of his favorites. He kept sneaking more rolls instead!"

"I agree with xicota- the time and temp for this recipe is NOT accurate, if you follow the directions--they will be hard and burnt! 375 for 8-9 mins is GREAT! ENJOY them often. I've also substituted Pillsbury Crescent Roll refrigerated dough (one crescent piece per KNOT) and made LARGER Garlic Parmesan Knots! Excellent with Soups and Chili's Mmmmm...Good Eatin! ;)"

"Great recipe! So easy, and they were a hit at dinner. I replaced the canola oil with olive oil (I might try melted butter next time), used two cans of Grands Home Style biscuits, and baked the biscuits at 375F for about 9 minutes. I'll be making these often!"

"This is a great recipe. I served them last night and many wanted the recipe. I baked them a few hours early and heated up in the oven before serving. You must make them!"

"I love this recipe but I don't cut the biscuits at all. The cheap refrigerater biscuits are kind of small any way and I use only 2 cans and re-coat them a 2nd time. I don't even brush them--I dunk the biscuits whole into the oil mix. We love them very much."
