Do you ever have one of those day where your intentions to make something are good, you have all the ingredients, and then when 6 o’clock rolls around you realize you’re a failure? Yeah, that was pretty much my Saturday. I had planned on making homemade garlic rolls to go with our soup dinner and had everything I needed to make them. When husband asked what was for dinner it suddenly hit me that I hadn’t made the dough.
I quickly scrambled to look in the refrigerator and see if I had any refrigerated rolls and found a package of French Bread dough. I quickly unwrapped it, cut it into pieces, and made easy garlic knots. Twenty minutes later we had piping hot browned butter and garlic knots that while not homemade were still pretty delicious.
Browned Butter Garlic Rolls (adapted from Cooking Light, November 2013)
1 package refrigerated French bread dough (such as Pillsbury)
2 T. butter
1 t. sage
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Remove the dough from the package. Cut into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 9 inch rope. Tie each strip in a knot.
3. Place the knots on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook until lightly browned. Immediately add in the sage, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
5. Remove the rolls from the over and brush the hot garlic butter over top of them. Serve immediately.
