I’m obsessed with these garlic knots.
I’m not even a garlic knot person. I have no problem turning down a garlic knot in a restaurant.
But these are so perfect. Maybe it’s because they’re so soft and fluffy right out of the oven. Or maybe it’s because they’re full of mozzarella cheese.

Can You Freeze Garlic Knots?
Yes, you can freeze these cheesy garlic knots! Bake them as instructed and then let them cool completely. Make sure they are completely cool!
Wrapped the cool garlic knots tightly in aluminum foil and then place in a freezer ziploc bag or other freezer-safe container.
They’ll be tastiest if consumed within a month of going into the freezer.
To defrost, just let them thaw at room temperature overnight. If you prefer them warm, you can heat them in the oven at 300F for about 10 minutes.
To heat from frozen, bake them at 300F for about 20 minutes.
