This Garlic Parmesan Bacon Knots post is sponsored by Wellshire Farms. As always, thank you for reading and for supporting companies I partner with, which allows me to create unique content and recipes for you from readily accessible ingredients. All opinions are always my own

I cannot emphasize to you enough how delicious these Garlic Parmesan Bacon Knots are. The way the bacon renders into the flaky puff pastry but stays slightly chewy and so so flavorful? Heaven. Seriously, the bacon is the star of the show here. 

I first discovered Wellshire Farms Sugar Free Paleo Dry Rubbed Bacon a couple of years ago when Matt and I did our first Whole30. Bacon is one of those things that you don’t realize has added sugar in it until you’re trying to cut it out. Thankfully, you absolutely do not miss the sugar and it has become the only bacon we keep in rotation in our house, even when we’re not doing Whole30 and just balancing our diet regularly. 

Like this recipe, Wellshire Farms Sugar Free Bacon only has a handful of ingredients. With no antibiotics, no growth hormones, no preservatives, and no added nitrates or nitrites, you know you’re getting a product that you can feel good about feeding your family. Wellshire Farms is always all-natural, always animal friendly, and always transparent with their ingredients. Norah is obsessed with their Chicken Dino Nuggets and I love that I can give them to her freely without worrying about what may be lurking inside. 

Even though the holidays might look different this year, these Garlic Parmesan Bacon Knots are sure to bring a smile to your face and add a fun… twist to your table. 

Ingredients and Subs

Parmesan cheese — Grated works much better here, but you could use shredded in a pinch.

garlic powder — You could also use some freshly minced garlic, but I just find the mix is easier to sprinkle on the knots without the moisture of the fresh garlic. The flavor is amazing though!

fresh rosemary — You could also use parsley here!

frozen puff pastry — You only need one sheet for this recipe and two typically come in a box. You can save the other for another day OR easily double this recipe! 

Wellshire Farms Sugar-Free Paleo Dry-Rubbed Bacon — My absolute favorite bacon. Period. 10 strips of bacon come in a pack and I wrote this recipe for 12 knots, opening up two packs. If you wanted to just use one pack and make 10 knots, just be sure to cut your puff pastry strips a bit wider, only making 10. No other modifications will need to be made!

How do you shape Garlic Parmesan Bacon Knots?

It’s as simple as tying your shoe! If you watch the video it’s easier to see, but basically, you just lay the bacon on top of the puff pastry strip, grab both ends and put one end over the other and pull the other end through the center loop. Voila! It sounds way more complicated than it really is. Promise.

How to make

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. 

In a shallow bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, rosemary, and salt. Set aside.

Place the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 12 (1/2 inch) wide strips. 

Lay one slice of bacon on top of each puff pastry strip and tie it into a knot. Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat for all of the bacon and puff pastry. 

Sprinkle the tops of the knots with the garlic-Parmesan mixture. 

Bake 30-35 minutes until the puff pastry is golden brown and the bacon is crispy. Serve room temperature or warm.

How to store

These are really best eaten the same day they’re made, but If you’re making for a get-together, I wouldn’t worry about there being leftovers. TBH, just the two of us polished them off pretty quickly. You could possibly store for a day or so in an airtight container and then reheat in the oven or in the air fryer to maintain that crispiness.

Can I make it ahead of time?

You can assemble the knots a few hours ahead of time and just bake them right before serving. They can be served warm or at room temp.
