Toronto Garlic Argo-Knots
Since there may be a knot in your stomach as you watch each play, there should also be a knot on your menu! Perfect for soaking up the last dredges of your game-day chili, or even as a stand-alone snack, these are easy to make before the game, and serve with the rest of your tailgate treats.
