Mouth watering garlic knots are filled with cheese and smothered in buffalo sauce in this delicious recipe for cheesy garlic knots, perfect as an appetizer or party snack!
Garlic knots, the delicious creation that twists up pizza dough and smothers it in garlic butter, creating one of the most delicious snacks ever!
When I lived downtown San Diego, I used to frequent a little pizza shop that sold garlic knots in a bag by the half dozen. My friends would order pizza slices at said pizza shop, I would order a dozen garlic knots and literally just eat them out of the bag, like the civilized food blogger I am 😉
Needless to say, I’ve had a long standing love affair with garlic knots and today I made them even better by filling them with cheese and smothering them in buffalo sauce, creating Buffalo Cheesy Garlic Knots, also know as THE MOST DELICIOUS SNACK EVER!
You better believe I’ll be making these for game day parties all football season long!
- 4 oz cream cheese (softened)
- ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles
- 1 lb pizza dough (store bought or homemade – click the link for the homemade recipe)
- 4 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp buffalo sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp dried parsley
- ½ cup blue cheese or ranch dressing – optional, serve on side for dipping
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and blue cheese crumbles, set aside.
Roll the pizza dough out into a rectangle. Cut into 12 one inch strips of dough.
Place a small spoonful of the cream cheese/blue cheese mixture in the middle of each strip of dough.
Wrap the strips of dough around the cheese and tie into a knot. Place the cheesy garlic knots on a baking sheet.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, buffalo sauce, garlic powder and parsley.
Brush this mixture over the garlic knots.
Place in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
Immediately remove from the oven and brush with any remaining butter buffalo sauce mixture.
Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing on the side for dipping, if you would like.
Now just try not to eat all dozen of them by yourself… like I may or may not have done 😉
