Savory Bread

Despite America's obsession with sweet treats, baking isn't all about sugar. Savory breads like rosemary focaccia or buttery garlic knots deserve a second look, too. What elevates ordinary bread into savory perfection? The addition of mouth-watering ingredients-cheese, bacon, onions and more. You're only limited by your imagination in the kitchen. F&W's guide to savory bread provides delicious recipes from loaded corn bread to airy spoon breads. You can even find ideas for savory cupcakes, such as a curried buttermilk cake filled with peas, carrots and potatoes, or a recipe that incorporates goat cheese-horseradish "frosting."

How to Make Spelt Garlic Knots
We’re calling it: 2017 is the year of the garlic knot. And the best part about these revamped classics taking Brooklyn by storm? They’re not only good, they’re good for you. At newly opened Gristmill in Park Slope, dough wunderkind Jake Novick-Finder has a devoted following for his reinvention of the beloved pizza shop snack. Made with fresh, locally milled flour (which is more nutrient-dense) and whole-grain spelt flour, his garlic knots are chewier and more flavorful than your standard knots. He finishes them with a liberal sprinkling of everything-bagel spice and cacio e pepe toppings. “But they still hit that same nostalgic note,” he says. —Julia Heffelfinger
