A delicious garlic bread recipe, these Crescent Roll Garlic Knots are a simple way to enjoy this Italian restaurant classic, without spending hours on from-scratch dough.
Garlic Knots Recipe
During last year’s trip to Toronto, my daughter and I had a phenomenal meal at Buca, featuring the best garlic knots I have ever had.
Like, talk about them a year later good.
I will eventually bring you a from-scratch version of these, but this Crescent Roll version is perfect for a low-key spaghetti night when you want to have something a bit special, but you don’t have two hours to spare to knead and roll out dough.
But you don’t have to worry that these garlic knots are a compromise – that mouth-watering garlic butter sauce covers all manners of sins, and will more than make up for using a little cheat.
While they are best enjoyed fresh, you can make these crescents in advance and just warm them up in the oven until the butter is melted again.
In the unlikely event that you will have leftovers, just store in a airtight container in the fridge, up to three days.
You can serve these Garlic Knots with:
- Sunday Gravy

How to Make Garlic Knots
Preheat oven to 350F
Cut the crescent rolls into strips and tie the dough in knots.
Place 2 Tablespoons each of the butter and oil in a skillet until the butter is melted, then add in the garlic. Cook until fragrant and then take off the heat.
Place the knots in the skillet and spoon some of the garlic butter onto each knot.
Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until knots are golden brown.
In the meantime, melt the remaining butter and add in the oil and parsley.
When you remove the skillet from the oven, immediately pour the mixture over the hot knots.
