Garlic Chive Knots

This isn't so much a recipe as a method. You don't have to use garlic and chives. You could use cinnamon and sugar, and make cinnamon rolls. Still, it is a great way to dress up a simple meal.

1 1/2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated bread stick dough
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or green onions
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic; sauté 30 seconds or until lightly browned. Remove from heat; stir in garlic powder. Unroll the bread stick dough onto a lightly floured surface; brush dough with garlic mixture. Sprinkle the dough with chives and cheese.

Roll the dough back up. Cut the dough into strips (the knife will crimp the ends together, or you can separate the strips, and shape each strip into a knot). Place the knots onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 17 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
