Easy Parmesan Knots

My kids love these Parmesan Knots! They are so simple to make and they can even do them all by themselves! Which is a win, win in our kitchen.

We usually always have a can of buttermilk biscuits in our fridge to make these. Need a quick appetizer for game night with friends or a side dish of rolls next to your main meal, these only have six simple ingredients that are easy to have on hand and easy to make.

My girls love to make these Easy Parmesan Knots. Tying them in a knot, stirring the ingredients together and brushing each knot is a highlight they both love. My boys appreciate their “hard work” and devour them with marinara sauce, my Homemade Alfredo Sauce or even cheese.

Ingredients for Easy Parmesan Knots:

  • Refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • Melted butter
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (I did use the green can stuff)
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried Oregano
  • Dried parsley flakes

How do you make Easy Parmesan Knots?

  • Roll each biscuit into a 12-in. rope and tie into a knot; tuck ends under.
  • Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; brush the warm knots with the mixture.

Can you use fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese?

Yes! Grated Parmesan Cheese will taste great too! For a quicker way and something you usually have in your pantry the grated can of parmesan cheese works great too!

Can you use homemade dough?

Yes! This is perfect for using homemade bread dough instead of buttermilk biscuits. I love the quick and easiness of the can of biscuits but these are great with homemade bread dough. Try my Quick and Easy Dough for another great way to make them.

What sauces or dips go well with Parmesan Knots?

Can you make these Parmesan Knots ahead of time?

Yes! If they are anything like our home, they won’t last long. These are perfect for a quick snack or a needed side dish of bread during dinner. They will be good for 2 to 3 days in a sealed or contained storage.

Can you freeze Parmesan Knots?

Yes! You can freeze the knots after they are baked; however, they will need to be warmed up after thawed. For best results, making them, baking them and eating them taste the freshest.
