Prosciutto knots with wild garlic

Prosciutto knots with wild garlic

Although this isn’t an original recipe (thank you @tasty) I gave it my personal twist substituting the bacon with prosciutto and using wild garlic. Still, the bacon knots are also REALLY good and made the bulk of the recipe…. I had so much dough left and not enough bacon strips.
