This is a quick, from scratch garlic butter, to impress whomever you're cooking for. Its made with ingredients you probably have on hand, and stores in the refrigerator for up to a month. Tasty for garlic bread!


  1. In a small bowl melt butter in microwave.
  2. Using a garlic press, or food processor, mince and pulp garlic.
  3. You can use more or less garlic according to taste.
  4. Combine melted butter, basil, orgegano, and garlic.
  5. Whisk in 1/3 cup olive oil.
  6. Brush or spoon on to your favorite bread, bake to re-heat bread.
  7. ENJOY!

Wonderful! We halved the recipe and used it on six hard rolls, then stuck them under the broiler for a few minutes. They were great. Thanks!

The garlic butter is so good and it's so easy to do. I put it on fresh baguettes and grilled on the bbq. Thanks Jamie Renee :) Made for Cookbook tag game
