What to Serve with Air Fryer Garlic Knots

  • Baked Ziti. There is really nothing better than a wonderful pasta dish with a side of garlic knots or garlic bread.
  • A traditional comfort food such as chicken and gravy or a slow cooker pot roast.
  • Serve as an appetizer with a good marinara sauce for dipping.

Change Things Up!

I had a can of refrigerated biscuit dough on hand already so that’s what I chose to use for these garlic knots, but you can defiantly use something like pizza dough instead.

Also, you can add parmesan cheese to the garlic mixture or even sprinkle to top after the garlic knots are done cooking.

Don’t want to take the time to form these into knots? Keep them as breadsticks by just rolling them into breadstick forms after cutting biscuits in half before cooking.

Regardless of how you want to serve and eat these garlic knots, they will be the perfect side dish or appetizer for any meal!
