  • For the dough
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour + more for forming
  • For the knots
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup crispy bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated fine
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • Marinara sauce, for serving


    Preheat oven to 375°F.

    Prepare dough by dissolving yeast in warm water.
    Stir and allow to bloom and foam for 3-5 minutes.
    Stir in honey, and pour mixture into flour, stirring until a ball is formed.

    Knead dough until no longer tacky.
    Cover and let rise until doubled in size.

    In a pot, combine garlic and butter and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

    Cut dough into 2-inch pieces and roll out about a 1/4-inch thick.
    Brush with garlic butter, sprinkle with bacon, cheese and a dollop of mashed potatoes.
    Fold and press the edges together to form a little dough ball.
    Brush with more garlic butter and pop into a prepared cupcake pan.

    Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
