Garlic knots technique?
« on: September 23, 2017, 11:56:07 AM »
Hi,

Does anyone have a simple and straightforward technique on how to make garlic knots so we can make them efficiently and consistently in our store?

Its a new item we want to add to our menu, i havn't made them before.

Thanks

Also, if someone can help with telling me if it would be possible to par-bake them or something like that so when an order comes we can dash them out quickly?

Yes, they par-bake fine (mentioned around reply #14 in the linked post).

Scale your dough into 50-gram pieces or whatever weight you want to use. (we scale them from our fermented dough balls) roll each dough piece (like a hot dog), sometimes a light spritz of water on the bench top helps to roll the dough. Form each piece like a hot dog, about the same diameter and same length or maybe a little longer, tie into a single overhand knot and place on a lightly oiled sheet pan to proof for about 20-minutes, par-bake until very light golden color, store at room temperature up to 3-days in a covered dough box. To use, remove what you need, place on a screen and reheat, immediately after you remove them from the oven dip in a commercial garlic flavored oil or butter oil, sprinkle with grated Parmesan and you're good to go.

There’s also some good YouTube videos on this subject.

I just open a dough ball into a rectangle and use a pizza cutter to cut strips of dough, which I then simply tie into a knot. I let them proof for a bit on a pizza screen then pop them into the oven. I've also seen places who roll the dough up like a cinnamon roll.

This is an old post but I originally composed it after reading a lot of stuff from the PMQ Think Tank, some of which may have come from Tom:
