Cheesy Garlic Knots Medium

Home made bread is absolutely delicious and surprisingly simple to make.

Perfect weekend project.


  • 500g strong white flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 7g sachet fast-action yeast
  • 3 tbsp garlic oil
  • 300ml water
  • 100g Grated cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped herbs like chives


Pour the flour into a large bowl

Add the dried yeast and salt, combine

Pour the Fussels garlic oil and water all over the flour, and mix well

Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and knead

Once the dough is satin-smooth (10-15 minutes), place it in a bowl and leave to rise for 1 hour until doubled in size

When risen, divide the dough into 4 and roll into thin long sausage shape and cut into 10cm long segments

Flatten them out and fill with a little cheese and herbs, roll up and tie into a knot and place on a baking tray

Continue with the rest of the dough, sprinkle with a little more garlic oil and leave to rise for another 30 minutes

When ready to bake, bake as they are, or brush with a little beaten egg for a shiny finish or sprinkle with sesame seeds and little more cheese for a crunchy finish!

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and sounding hollow when tapped

Cool on a wire rack
