If you've never made compound herbed butter, then you're missing out! It's so very simple, yet a fancy finish to any dish. It's especially fun to serve around the holidays, and let's talk about a blank canvas! The possibilities are endless as to what can go into butter...herbs, cheese, fruit, mustard, spices, jams, fruit, bacon (ahhh bacon...sorry, started day dreaming), etc.
Why should these lovely gems be a necessity in your refrigerator? Because I said so! A dollop of flavored butter could be used to grace steaks, fish (any meat really), biscuits/bread, pasta, corn on the cob, and potatoes.
Simply mix your favorite ingredients into room temperature butter.
Place butter on parchment paper or plastic wrap and roll into logs. Or, you could place butter into pretty containers and give as lovely homemade gifts for your favorite cook. Enjoy!
