Sriracha Knots

Home ยป Sriracha Knots

In our house we are total sriracha lovers and drink several large bottles of the stuff each year. That’s a lot of heat. I saw sriracha rolls at Walmart and knew I could easily replicate them at home. We are big fans of these babies! You can add less sriracha to keep it mild and all sriracha flavor, or pile it up for a spicy roll feast. Either way, we ate every single one of them every time they came out of the oven during our testing period.

Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Ready: 3 hours and 30 minutes
yield: 16 volumes

raw material

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tbsp olive oil

1 tablespoon is Sriracha
1 1/2 tablespoons instant yeast
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted
1-3 tbsp Srirachainstruct

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the water, olive oil, 1 tablespoon Sriracha, yeast, salt, and sugar. Mixing with a dough hook on low-to-medium-low speed, add flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough pulls cleanly from sides and forms a dough ball, adding slightly more flour as necessary. The dough should be slightly sticky and very soft.

2. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 90 minutes.

3. Divide the dough into two portions. Divide each half into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into an 8-inch rope. Tie each piece into a knot, then pinch the ends together at the front, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. For this recipe, you will probably need two baking sheets with 8 rolls on each. Cover and ferment for another 90 minutes, until doubled again.

4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake for about 14 minutes, until lightly browned on top.

5. Just before the rolls are done baking, whisk together the melted butter and 1 to 3 tablespoons sriracha in a small bowl. Use more sriracha for more heat, or less to keep it mild. Just out of the oven, brush the melted butter over the rolls with a pastry brush.

6. Best served warm, but also good chilled.
